Legal War For WA State Sunshine Law Re:The Law of Unintended Consequences (1364 comments)

This isn't an assault on anything, the public has every right to know which among them votes for whatever. Dave Chapelle had it right, this country seems to think that the way you vote is the most private information. That shouldn't be the case, if you're voting in a public election then your vote should also be public. In fact, you should be proud to stand up and say you voted for any one thing. If you're not proud to say that, then why did you vote?

There are a few reasons you can't (and shouldn't be able to) tie a name to a ballot: bribery and coercion, to name two.

If Joe can make a few bucks voting for Mr. A instead of Mrs. B, when he couldn't care less about the outcome of the election, why wouldn't he?

Should the management of Acme Co. be able to award bonuses to those who vote for a favored candidate, and demote or fire those who don't?

MD Appellate Ct. Sets "New Standard" For Anonymous Posting Cleanliness of a donut shop? Really? (260 comments)

It seems that these First Amendment cases are always about the most trivial and petty things possible. I fully expect the next one to revolve around whether or not yo momma is so fat, and how fat she is.

Is it just me

Yes, it is just you, because the rest of us know the difference between "kindle" and "kindling."

Are You Proud of Your Code? Not enough time (682 comments)

"If so, then what is holding you back from realizing your full potential?"


I'm swamped with numerous projects. If I had the time, I'd go back and fix the kludgey spaghetti-code nightmares that I've conjured up, but since they work for their intended purposes, other projects that are more important to my management-types get priority.
