Wow, imbuing children with outgoing arrogance. Not exactly a demonstration of positive morals.

I haven't bothered to mention the whole sad Aaron Swartz saga, because it's been covered elsewhere. 

But having the involved US attorney then basically lie about it all in a very public statement is something that I find particularly offensive. Compare these two statements - one from July 2011, one from yesterday, and tell me Carmen Ortiz isn't lying..

Yesterday (as reported by the Wall Street Journal and elsewhere):

 "At no time did this office ever seek – or ever tell Mr. Swartz’s attorneys that it intended to seek – maximum penalties under the law."

And July 2011 (as posted by justice.gov itself):

 "SWARTZ faces up to 35 years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, restitution, forfeiture and a fine of up to $1 million"

Maybe that official and very public PR thing wasn't "telling Mr. Swartz’s attorneys", right?  Because in private, Ms Ortiz was probably talking about how she wanted to pay Aaron for his services, and just hug him. Right?  Anybody?

Ms Ortiz, just admit you were an ass-hat, and apologize. Instead of this kind of crap. Weasel-wording and misleading about your actions is not making your office look any better.

Here are the sources, so that people can compare them for themselves.

Xtreme Steam Carpet Cleaning are professionals who communicate well, show up on schedule, and do excellent work. They came to give an estimate, and we scheduled the cleaning for a couple days later. They arrived on-time for the cleaning and cleaned the carpets quickly and thoroughly. All of the stains are gone. I appreciate how this company conducts their business in a professional manner - much better than any other local company.

The food here is terrific, the atmosphere is fun and casual, and again, the food is absolutely terrific. For an affordable and truly enjoyable meal experience without the pretense, this is the place to go. Be prepared to wait about 15 minutes for a seat.

I bought my car here when it was North Texas Nissan. The vinyl on my door armrest had come unwrapped and I asked if they could re-staple it since it's not ripped. They told me that they would have to replace half a dozen parts. Obviously a scam.

My experience with this hotel was fine, except for my experience the first night. I had people walk into my room at midnight! It turns out the clerk who checked me in mixed up the room numbers and checked me into the system in one room but gave me the info/key for another. So after the awkward incident with people walking in, the clerk called my room and asked me to come down with payment (my company had paid); he found the mistake and cleared it up, but he said I still needed to have my card re-keyed for security purposes. So I go down, and when I get back up with my newly keyed card, it doesn't work! I go up and down the stairs a total of 4 times before he can manage to program a working key. Everything in my experience seemed like a perfect storm of coincidence, but I lost an hour of sleep because of it.
