  5. LOL...thank you, Fernlaplante. I guess the headline/link was for dramatic effect. It's all show business...LOL

    Should we make a phone call down to Louisiana to tell Ms Brooks that she's still alive? I guess we can use email.

  6. Maybe Kanye West can donate that money from the $120. white t shirt to some just cause in the 'community', maybe help out Trayvon Martin's family. What am I saying? Never mind.


    Manning did in fact aid the enemy. I'm afraid Bradley is going to made an example of. Hope and change, all y'all.

  7. A lot of the problems with electrical shock injuries have to do with them being reported as electrocutions. If one is electrocuted, one is dead. The word electrocution is compounded from electricity or electron and execution, meaning literally death by electricity. I read news reports all the time from major sources like AP, ABC, CNN, CBS etc.. where the reporter uses the word electrocuted to mean shocked. I remember reading one headline, "Man recovering from electrocution", just a few weeks ago. Somewhere, the wires got crossed...

  8. Soldiers charged with aiding the enemy have a better chance of conviction than civilians, but the proper charge was dereliction of duty. Technically, the term aiding the enemy has some very specific meanings, including espionage or "signaling". The problem is that aiding the enemy requires intent, and the prosecutors are trying to eliminate that requirement, which would put many journalists in the prosecutorial crosshairs, much as they were in WWI. Manning's defense is that he did not intend to aid the enemy and that the secrets posted were not material. The prosecution argues that the secrets revealed "undermined" the War on Terror, but this legal theory has never been tried before.
