    What is this “customer service rep on chat lines” thing, and why do I need it?
    Come to think of it, why do I need chat?

    That means the only cure for hating winter, unfortunately, is just more winter.
    Um, nope. There’s also moving closer to the equator. It gets hot here in Texas, but you don’t have to shovel hot.

    It seems “good citizens” are as unprepared mentally as they were physically.
    There’s also a matter of self-selection. Prepared people didn’t end up in the shelter.

    I think the dogs ran a long con on the researchers to conceal their canine powers.

    Random thought RE: the Seattle guy convicted of obstruction for not opening his door to police – if, say, “the guy” possessed something potentially illegal, from ridiculously small misdemeanor to full felony, would not the 5th Amendment guarantee against self incrimination justify not voluntarily admitting police?

    And, were police to gain entry anyway – which they did by breaking down the door – and said illegal material was present, if the police did not Mirandize him before breaking down the door would the arrest, and subsequent conviction, be invalidated?

    And, since Mirandizing trhough a closed and locked door probably prevents police verifying confirmation that the accused has heard and understands his rights, is Mirandizing through a closed door something that can be accomplished within the legal bounds of rights notification?

    Why thank you, Comrade X. I just wish I had more postings with good, or at least productive, news and not so much OMG stuff.

    At least I can usually find something “lite” to end with.

    Whoever thinks that men always want the thermostat lower has never lived with a woman over a certain age. 🙂
