Judge Kozinski

Judge Kozinski recused himself from the obscenity trial. I wouldn't have-what he had on his computer was no more prurient than what my Dad forwards me. People are making it out like he was running a porn site, but it was just a private server that he stored some email jokes on, that was badly configured. I wonder if the people who support his recusal-or who want to ax him-think judges who drink should be able to preside over DUI cases?

FISA Compromise

There is a compromise on the table for the proposed telecom immunities in the new FISA bill. The compromise would give jurisdiction for immunity claims to the secret FISA court and would make the only issue whether the Justice Department asked for the spying, not whether it was lawful in itself. This is unacceptable. If Bush needs to spy so badly, let him get a warrant from the FISA court, which approves 99% of all warrants.

RIP Aunt Dina

My Aunt Dina died Sunday. Here's a poem I wrote for her funeral:

Eternal Monument

From the day I was born you believed in me

Whenever I saw you, you always said

“Daniel I'm so proud!”

“Go for it, Daniel!”

“Daniel, I love you”

Now you are departed

Gone forever

But your belief in me

Will be forever in my heart:

An eternal monument

Secret IP Treaty

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is set to be discussed at the G8. So far, the governments involved have kept pretty mum about it. It's an IP treaty, and with the shit that industry has pulled in the past, I'm very, very worried about this. Why the secrecy? What do they have to hide about a law they will want us all to follow?
