THEORY OF THE ORIGIN OF MAN
(House of Representatives - July 11, 2002)

[Page H4527]
From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov]

One of my nieces, now in her early 30s, called the OPP and CPS on my brother when she was 15 or 16. He grounded her for the weekend for being caught drinking at school and failing some mid-terms and she felt it was child abuse. CPS actually took it seriously, and to my brother's credit, he simply told the case worker to remove her from the home immediately if he could not ground his child for such behaviour. The case worker was apparently counseled by the cop on the spot and the brat got an extra week of grounding for making the phone calls.

Nick Denton's grand statement about Gawker's closing.

http://gawker.com/how-things-work-1785604699

Many lul'z are to be had. It's shocking that even now the man is not capable of owning up to the simple fact that maybe the site shouldn't have posted a private sex tape without permission.

I don't like Gawker, but the entire affair is troubling on many levels. A dubious claim, an outrageous verdict, the company being put out of business before being able to appeal the judgment.

Maybe next time they won't act like smug assholes on the witness stand.

What's the dubious claim? That the sex tape itself was not "news?" The existence of a sex tape as being news is obviously not controversial but Hulk's technique is news? That one I'm not so ready to buy.

If you can't do the time, then don't do the crime, Ata.

You have no idea the schadenfreude this has generated in Canada. Endless comments about where "The Wall" really needs to be built, practice in case Trump is elected, etc.

If they're building the wall for Trump's election, who are they shielding themselves from?  Seems to me they should be building it for Hillary's coronation.
