Lots and lots of articles currently floating along the etherweb regarding the repeal of marijuana prohibition.

I wonder what's the over/under for this to become a reality. 10 years?

Daily Kos: Legalizing Marijuana More Popular Than Republicans

Could be sooner in California.

The very first month I lived in San Francisco back in '99 I went to see Tom Ammiano debate SF mayoral icon Willie Brown. Ammiano was on the city counsel but previous to that he was a stand-up comic. And he's gay, too. Willie isn't a slouch when it comes to a retort either. That was the most hilarious debate I've ever witnessed.

Tom is currently serving in the state legislature and he introduced this piece of loveliness yesterday. If California really takes the reigns on legalizing marijuana we could see it happen across much of the country much sooner than 10 years.

Calif. lawmaker introduces bill to legalize pot:

"Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a San Francisco Democrat, introduced a bill Monday that if approved by the California Legislature would put pot on the same legal footing as alcohol. Adults over the age of 21 would be allowed to buy it, and driving under the influence of marijuana would be prohibited.

Under Ammiano's proposal, which has been endorsed by some law enforcement officials, pot would be taxed at a rate of $50 per ounce and bring an estimated $1 billion into state coffers."

Tough times call for the repeal of stupid Sunday blue laws.

Will the Recession Doom the Last Sunday Blue Laws?:

"A handful of state legislatures have declared it's closing time for Sunday alcohol sales restrictions, saying an extra day of sales could give their foundering budgets a much-needed shot of revenue. Those states - Georgia, Connecticut, Texas, Alabama and Minnesota - enjoy overwhelming voter support for an extra day of sales, but face opposition from members of the Christian right, who say that selling on Sunday undermines safety and tears apart families. 'During times of economic stress, our families are under enough pressure,' says Jim Beck, the president of the Georgia Christian Coalition. 'I don't think we need to add even more pressure to those families by passing this law.'"


GOP: ISPs, Wi-Fi Must Keep Logs For Police, Proposed Data Retention Law Covers All Internet Providers, Even Your Home Wi-Fi Access, To Combat Child Porn - CBS News:

"CNET) Republican politicians on Thursday called for a sweeping new federal law that would require all Internet providers and operators of millions of Wi-Fi access points - even hotels, local coffee shops and home users - to keep records about users for two years to aid police investigations.

The legislation, which echoes a measure proposed by one of their Democratic colleagues three years ago, would impose unprecedented data retention requirements on a broad swath of Internet access providers and is certain to draw fire from businesses and privacy advocates."

When is incest not really incest? When you're in Alabama, apparently.

Not blood related. Both of age. Yet, incest.

Two charged with incest - The Times Daily | Florence, AL:

"FLORENCE - An east Florence man and his stepdaughter have been charged with incest after their sexual encounters were reportedly videotaped and photographed, authorities said.

Heather Ann Montanez, 20, 3202 Huntsville Road, Florence, and 43-year-old Kenneth John Trieber, 4702 Huntsville Road, Florence, have been charged with four counts of incest, authorities said.

Incest is a felony in Alabama and can involve people who are not blood relatives. The law states that having sex with a stepchild or stepparent is considered incest."

The kids are all right.

Amid the grieving, a rare act of sportsmanship


Now this is some change I can rub one out to.
