Didn’t I just write something about do the days seem like they are getting nuttier and nuttier? Because today would be yet another example of that. But mostly in a good way…I think.
1. Hypothetical: if someone you know goes to an event at which there are hundreds of people and the hosts tell you that what you’re about to hear is off the record and that someone who attended the event tells you what they heard, are you allowed to repeat the proclaimed off the record content of the event?
3. Thank you thank you thank you everyone who has left a comment over the last two or three weeks. I read them all, I imagine that I will respond to them all and then, well, these nutty days. And I get carried away with writing about things that matter to me and I get asked to help with things that matter to me and then I don’t get to the comments – which DO matter to me. So my goal is to get through them all within the next week, and hopefully by the end of the weekend, if not earlier (I’m trying not to be too ambitious because that’s when I get in trouble). If anyone has some good time management where comments are concerned tips, let ’em rip.
Okay – that’s that. Now on to the Remains:
2. From Cliff Schecter we get this post about the NH Supreme Court delineating between being incompetent to stand trial versus being mentally defective to the point where you cannot own a gun. Jerid, be very careful up there, eh?
4. This ridiculousness is the kind of thing to fear when social agendas start to push logic: a dislike and repudiation of homosexuals leads to our country’s inability to communicate with the millions of Muslims whose lives we’re disrupting as we claim to attempt to make their lives better.
5. Who wants to explain this and this? I can tell you that I sure don’t want to be anyone implicated on that first timeline. Someone please tell me that someone is going to be examing the legally required risk assessment tool that Ohio mental health professionals are supposed to use, to help understand why said professionals felt that the man now under arrest was or was not a risk to himself or others. If you want to understand how the duty to warn works and how mental health professionals become immune from prosecution even if a patient acts violently, read that hyperlink.
7. Not sure why I haven’t seen more about a new book out called The Rise of the Blogosphere. See Amazon listing here. But here’s an in-depth review of it, with a link to another review. Interesting or no? Note that the title of the post is Analysis of Journalism. 🙂
8. Legal Times publishes a piece about how the DOJ has made immigration judgeships political. Nooooo!?
9. ProBlogger has a free resource called Blog Profits Blueprint. Sounds like something I might make the time to check out, even knowing that I probably won’t bother.
10. A friend of ours just went into the hospital this week for three or so weeks to endure a stem cell transplant. We wish him the absolute best and are positive that all will go exceedingly well, as his treatment has so far. And today, in The Blog Herald, I read about how a blogger is broadcasting his bone marrow transplant on the blog. Our friend is keeping an online journal, but I don’t know that he wants to go that far.
That’s all folks.
