When he finished 75th out of 76 applicants in the final round of screening, Cohn "intervened and created an additional position specifically for the applicant"

It's about time! I can't believe they only now got around to creating a position dedicated to checking for a filing's obviousness.

20 years is long enough, long enough for Terminator 2 to now be public domain and Skynet to be a free literary construct.

Considering some fashion of Skynet will probably soon be a reality, the copyright holders can then send it a forceful cease and desist letter, and will have the option to sue it in court. That'll show Skynet.

As far as the argument that "Nobody cares until it happens to a celebrity," sometimes a famous case that happens to a celebrity is what people need to get them to start caring about an issue. A lot of people started caring more about AIDS once Rock Hudson and Freddie Mercury died. Nobody really knew what ALS was until Lou Gehrig got it, and it ended his baseball career and then his life.

In the past, the press was the only way of distributing news widely, and celebrities were the only ones who got press coverage. Depending on your definition of 'celebrity', I suspect the Internet has changed that. Consider oh, I don't know, Tardar Sauce -- if he got a disease while he was still well-known, everybody in the world would know about it. A couple hyperlinks away is a detailed description of the disease, and you soon have worldwide visibility and education on what was otherwise a local concern.

For those with smaller circles of influence, the same holds true to a lesser extent. When these people experience problems, information just as detailed can be spread just as easily by their followers through networking effects.

Quite frankly - if someone is getting shot every year, I would have no problem telling him he's probably not making the best choices.

Yes, yes, I know, but it is difficult to find a job when I'm not in the country entirely legally, and have a wife and eight children to feed. Nevertheless, I do very much appreciate your concern and advice.

To make sure that NYC is not Ferguson.

He has a couple of "meet the police" fairs, which I never saw before.

He has done everything right that Ferguson did wrong.

Now, the NYC police is not perfect, but at least they are actively attempting to do a better job, rather than attempting to prove how 'tough' they are. ...

This initiative, in particular, is unusually progressive.
