This is a well-reasoned argument against requiring encryption backdoors for the government. Why couldn't these former government executives make as much sense when they were in their former positions?

Speaking of bad ideas from Congress, this one's a doozy.

TL;DR: Instead of grants for specific research, awards prizes after the research has produced results, and put 9 politically appointed individuals in charge of handing out the prizes.

What I find interesting is that the Dragon payload survived the 2nd stage failure ... and could have survived the ocean landing if the parachutes had been programmed to deploy.  Bet that feature's going to get promoted to production in the next release.

As I understand it, they were already working on that software enhancement prior to the launch failure. This just nudged the priority on the ticket up a few places.

From the Fine Article:

"Mark Weiner’s freedom did not come about this week because the system worked. It came about because the system protected the system from abject embarrassment. That isn’t justice. That’s just sad."

+Craig Trader There's precedent. President Ford granted "a full, free, and absolute pardon to former President Nixon". http://www.c-span.org/video/?153623-1/president-gerald-fords-pardon-richard-nixon
