Sad to think now of all the security that surrounds the Weinermobile. But, at the same time, when I consider the sleek, high-tech aerodynamic chassis, and the tremendous payload that could be stuffed into the frame of this phallic symbol on wheels, I have to admit I understand why we can't let this thing near the Pentagon.

This too shall pass... or will it?
If we're talking about intellectual property "passing into the public doman," then maybe not. At least not if the Content Kings have their way. I agree with Donna Wentworth. She agrees with Larry Lessig, and the title of her post pays homage to his book The Future of Ideas. I myself try to pay homage to that book at least once a week.
From Dean Peters, a righteous dude if ever there was one.
"The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was busted for getting too near the Pentagon on a highway closed to commercial traffic. The sharp eyes of Virginia state troopers spotted and pulled over the giant motorised sausage on Highway 110, which has been closed to vehicles with six wheels or more since the September 11 terrorist attacks."

We must remain vigilant. The terrorists are desperate, and who's to say they wouldn't try to hijack a national emblem like the Wienermobile and drive it into the Pentagon?
The Court has saved for Thursday its decisions on: (a) the constitutionality of government-funded vouchers for religious schools; (b) the constitutionality of suspicionless drug testing of public high school students; (c) the scope of free speech rights of candidates for elected judicial office; and (d) whether Alabama prison guards who handcuffed an inmate to a hitching post for seven hours are entitled to qualified immunity.

From Wired: "Are websites required to link to a newspaper's online front door, or can they link directly to the story? A judge may rule as early as Monday."
Apparently I've taken a "juvenile" approach to the law
Or, so says Dan Rosenbaum. That's cool. Not everything that juveniles do is bad. A lot of young kids question the way things are. Hopefully, that's what Dan meant when he called my approach "juvenile." Or maybe we are misunderstanding each other. That's something that both juveniles and adults do from time to time.
