On Taxes

"The legitimate object of government, is to do for a community of people, whatever they need to have done, but can not do, at all, or can not, so well do, for themselves—in their separate, and individual capacities."
- Abraham Lincoln

The Dumpster Project

The construction inside this wooden suitcase is what the interior of the dumpster will look like. I made this so I could take it with me to meetings and show people what I am going to do. Eventually, in one of these meetings, there will be someone who says:
"I like it; here's a dumpster."

I love this website.  Mac is cataloging his keepsakes before artfully arranging them in a dumpster.

Penalize Bad Prosecutors

In his New York Times Op-Ed, "The Prosecution Rests, but I can't," John Thompson makes a very strong case for creating a law that penalizes prosecutors who knowingly disregard the law and withhold evidence.  And these prosecutors can still practice law?  They should at the very least lose their license. Where is the Louisiana Bar Association and the ABA?  But taking eighteen years of an innocent man's life.  Come on?  These prosecutors should be thrown in jail.  No doubt it's a tough job, but right now, it's all upside for prosecutors, with little or no risk if they break the law in pursuit of conviction.

The Supreme Court is wrong on this one.
