D.P.H. ongoing by Tim Bray (2010-07-21).
I owe a whole lot to Perl. So does the practice of computing in general, and the construction of the Web in particular. Perl's situation is not terribly happy; I wouldn't go so far as to say "desperate", but certainly these are not its glory days. Herewith some thoughts on…(Linked Saturday 2010-08-14.)
When soothing lies go wrong. John Markley, The Superfluous Man (2010-08-07).
Radley Balko has been writing quite a bit lately about incidents of people being harassed, arrested, or having their property confiscated by law enforcement for recording video or audio of their encounters with police in public places, frequently involving police who cite completely imaginary state laws against the practice. From…(Linked Sunday 2010-08-15.)

Ninth Circuit Panel: Innocence, Schminnocence. We Have Rules, You Know. Radley Balko, Radley Balko: Reason Magazine articles and blog posts. (2010-07-07).
A three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has rejected an Oregon man's petition for habeas corpus relief (PDF). This despite acknowledging that the man has established actual innocence for the crimes for which he's being imprisoned (sexual abuse and sodomy of a four-year-old). The…(Linked Wednesday 2010-07-07.)
To serve, protect, and/or scare the hell out of. The Superfluous Man (2010-07-08). Be afraid. Be very afraid. (Linked Thursday 2010-07-08.)
With enemies like these, who needs friends? John Markley, The Superfluous Man (2010-06-23).
Paul Craig Roberts has a nice article at Counterpunch on the Left and gun control. This is something that has had me shaking my head for years. I find myself baffled by the mentality of someone who believes that: 1. The government is controlled by a malevolent cabal of greedy…(Linked Thursday 2010-07-08.)
History of Anarchism Presentation. DarianW, DarianWorden.com (2010-06-29).
At this year's Porcfest, I did a presentation at the AltExpo on the history of anarchism. I was overly ambitious with what I could fit into an hour, and really ran through some things that I would have liked to explain more. Particularly a lot of the post-WWII history was…(Linked Thursday 2010-07-08.)
Almost Getting Away With Murder. Darian Worden, Center for a Stateless Society (2010-07-09).
Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer Johannes Mehserle was given a slap on the wrist for his January 1, 2009 murder of Oscar Grant. A jury found Mehserle guilty of involuntary manslaughter, and not guilty of the second-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter charges he faced. It is sad that the…(Linked Friday 2010-07-09.)
- Like maggots to carrion. John Markley, The Superfluous Man (2009-10-27).
Ever find yourself in a position where you think most of the people who share your opinion on the proper course of action are utterly repulsive? Watching the response to the arrest of Roman Polanski, as his apologists rally to defend him against the unsophisticated flyover country types who think…(Linked Sunday 2009-11-15.)

typepad seems funky this morning, so i can’t link tom friedman’s column. but i think he’s showing his stripes, his…ass. he actually suggests that the nobel peace prize should go to the american military. now i will admit that the relation between peace and military power is complex, and that…(Linked Tuesday 2009-10-13.)
- You've got half your anarchy tied behind your back: Hey, libertarians! Politics makes you stupid. Brad Spangler, BradSpangler.com (2009-10-11).
One of the problems with anarchist activism in electoral politics is that it deforms the perspective, attitudes and rhetoric of members of the movement generally — decreasing the effectiveness of their advocacy. Sometimes that's the case with particular people even if they themselves aren't active in electoral politics. The stupidity…(Linked Wednesday 2009-10-14.)

Perusing Hit and Run, I encountered this post about some police caught on video who, having stormed a house during a drug raid, decided to settle in and spent several hours playing a bowling game on the resident’s Nintendo Wii.My instinctive reaction to reading this news is an illustration of…(Linked Wednesday 2009-10-14.)

I was up very late last night, as is my habit (one of the nice things about a job done mostly from home is that if I want to sit at my computer playing Victoria: Revolutions at 3:30 AM, that’s my prerogative), and I saw the news that Barack Obama…(Linked Wednesday 2009-10-14.)
