Bueller, Bueller, Bueller....



Is there a better comedy than Ferris Bueller's Day Off?

Talk to me people. What's going on in Federal Court this week? Is it just going to be more UBS postings...

Summer's over -- there's gotta be something good going on.

You know it's slow when SFL is comparing Tom Julin to Kingpin and Rumpole is already doing football posts. BTW guys, check out this article -- anonymous bloggers are being outed. And is it me, or is it wrong to put someone (this time Richard Hatch) in jail for giving an interview while at a halfway house?

There are times, however, when it's better to just keep quiet.

You want to talk about something...talk about this:

"Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has proposed a new regulation that would prevent most Israeli Arabs from becoming career diplomats.

He said that only those who complete military service should be eligible for training with the foreign ministry.

This would exclude most Arab citizens..."

WHAT???

Wait a minute, this sounds a little familiar...let me see...oh yeah:

"ANTI-JEWISH LEGISLATION IN PREWAR GERMANY"

"1933-1934

The first wave of legislation, from 1933 to 1934, focused largely on limiting the participation of Jews in German public life. The first major law to curtail the rights of Jewish citizens was the "Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service" of April 7, 1933, according to which Jewish and "politically unreliable" civil servants and employees were to be excluded from state service. The new Civil Service Law was the German authorities' first formulation of the so-called Aryan Paragraph, a kind of regulation used to exclude Jews (and often by extension other "non-Aryans") from organizations, professions, and other aspects of public life...."

The Israeli leadership is keeping great company these days!

I'm going to prosecute that fetching young woman's lawsuit against Google. How dare Google hand up her identity like that!! I like her quote:

Our Founding Fathers wrote 'The Federalist Papers' under pseudonyms. Inherent in the First Amendment is the right to speak anonymously. Shouldn't that right extend to the new public square of the Internet?"

She's not just pretty but she's smart too!!

Let me get this straight...

You should be able to criticize -- anonymously -- and defame people (call them sluts and ho's) and never have your name revealed! Sheesh.

You know it's not me -- I would never call a lady (particularly a beautiful model) such vulgar names!

Rumpole,

You were obviously distracted by the photos. That quote about the Federalist Papers was by her lawyer, Salvatore Strazzulo.
