This was the week that was...

A Pennasylvania school district passed out 2,300 laptops, then used their built in cameras to spy on students, at home, in their bedrooms. [Note: This is the logical result of our conservative supreme court saying schools can control what students do when they are off school property.]

There is a rooster loose in the Soulard histroic neighborhood south of downtoan St. Louis. It is keeping people awake with its crowing. So, and I am not making this up, the St. Louis Board of Aldermen passed a law against roosters in the city. It is unclear how to enforce the law against a ferrel chicken. [Note: The rooster is universally known in the neighborhood as Jerry Seinfeld.I don't know why.]

GM is going to paid the CEO it sacked $60,000 A MONTH for 20 hours per month of consulting. Anyone who still does not understand why the US auto industry is a diaster please raise your hand!

I have a friend who was in Manhatten when the planes flew into the WTC towers. He was in Austin this week when the plane flew into the IRS highrise. Spooky.
