Who cares if the pilot was the only one onboard, a crash of a full sized helicopter full of fuel is a significant risk to everyone in the vicinity. As to the charges, sure there's expungement (though in some states you can only expunge convictions, not arrests), but unfortunately for these guys they ran to the media so there's a more or less permanent record.

Non-competes are BS in almost all cases (if your title doesn't have a C* or *VP you probably shouldn't be asked to sign one), but as you say a non-solicitation agreement and nondisclosure agreement are probably fine for anyone dealing with sales or large amounts of confidential information.

Same with my first generation Toshiba 1080P LCD, I used the default blue skin for Mediacenter and it eventually left a red ghost that made me move it to the basement for the kids and replace it with a newer LED LCD that auto detects a static screen and turns off after 15 minutes.

Not in Ohio it doesn't, we have statewide franchises, and according to this almost half the states have state wide franchises. This is mostly because Verizon and AT&T wanted to make their lives easier when rolling out FIOS/U-Verse, but for the most part they'd apply to anyone willing to put in the paperwork.

End goal: change the constitution. We need a start. It's easy to see how hard this will be and to give up early, but some of us feel the imperative to fight for it. We can change things. The vast will of the masses (corporation political donations are not equivalent to the free speech we enjoy as individuals) needs to be strategically gathered. Critical mass could take decades, as with things like gay marriage.
