I live in a small town (about 13,000 people)...
13,000 would make your "small town" the 8th or 9th largest city in South Dakota.
There will be no market for this product. Nobody wants to listen to reason, and it does not sell advertising.
We want to hear that grandma will be put out of her home by the evil "OTHER" candidate.
We want to hear that the highways are riddled with drunks and unsafe cars.
We don't want to hear that grandma's income is actually quite safe, or that highway fatalities today kill fewer people than suicide.
A few hours ago, there was a
Maybe thats what happened?
And ear marks to pay for adding turtle crossings to roads in Badlands, South Dakota.
My sister nearly hit a turtle in SD the other day, while driving on a highway near our home. It was the size of a car tire. We put up those turtle crossing signs to warn motorists of the danger, not to protect the turtles!
So, acquitted or an over-turned verdict and you can get off the list... but simply being arrested and the charges later being dropped? Is there a process for expungement in that situation?
Generally, yes. In South Dakota, for example, we already have automatic DNA sampling imposed upon anyone *arrested* for a felony. It is part of the booking procedure. If the felony charges are dropped, dismissed, or you are acquitted at trial, you can send a copy of the dismissal order to the state lab and the sample must then be destroyed. This has been the rule for about two years now. (The tricky part is, for cases where the charges get dismissed early-on, you sometimes have to go ask the judge to sign a separate order documenting the dismissal, just so you have something you CAN send to the state lab.)
While we should probably be happy to see more than one viable candidate for the search engine market, none seem to address privacy very well. Both Bing/Yahoo and Google are quite happy to tell you that they'll track user activity and use it to make a profit. Are there any viable alternatives left with more favorable privacy policies?
Excellent, thanks for clearing that up!
That whole, "division by zero is undefined" business has always bothered me. Why doesn't someone just define it? Maybe we could say 1/0 == infinity or something.
Of course, it would have to be someone credible who did the deed. How about the slashdot editors?
Fair enough, what word do you use to describe those who DO affirmatively assert that there is no god?
Writing isn't sacred, it's just another occupation like woodchopping or running the cash register at the 7-11.
This is an interesting point of view given your signature:
"A lot" is two words. You wouldn't say "alittle", would you?
Apparently writing correctly is important. Then again, I so is getting the correct change at the 7-11, I suppose?
I don't want to be young again, I just don't want to get any older.
