stop the hatred

Graf seen on the LES. Then I got on the train. There were a couple with a
tiny little girl and they were reading her Madeline.

It is raining ice in the city right now.

Sony BMG's Costly Silence

Business Week has an article that sums up the Sony Rootkit story so far.

Seems that they knew way ahead of the story breaking that the CDs could open up your PC to hackers.

What will happen to Deborah Davis?

This may be the test case that determines whether or not you can be arbitrarily asked to show ID by the police. They do this kind of thing all the time anyway, so it will certainly be much worse if Davis loses her case.

This is a case of someone who was not under suspicion of a crime, she was simply riding public transportation to work. She spent several hours in jail and was issued two tickets.
