The White House showed yesterday that they have both the good common sense to decline any attempt to build the Death Star (because it's too expensive, destroying planets is bad, and because the Force is stronger than any army) and a sense of humor about declining to so.

Now it is time for them to show some humility and courage, and there's a petition for that, too: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/remove-united-states-district-attorney-carmen-ortiz-office-overreach-case-aaron-swartz/RQNrG1Ck

And also this one, which is entirely within President Obama's purview as Pardoner-in-Chief: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/posthumously-pardon-aaron-swartz/DVpdmSBj

I spent the last three weeks in India, where that country is in upheaval as a result of inept, insensitive, and downright shameful responses to a brutal rape that occurred in Delhi this past December.  The one good thing to come out of that terrible event is that the democratic will of a billion people has been stirred like no time before, and with it, a real change in both the sense of justice, its speed, and direction.  Here we can turn a tragic event into a similar change for good, by recognizing that we have the wrong people on the fast-track to prison, and we have the wrong people walking around scott-free after recklessly gambling trillions of dollars and then using their influence to gain access to trillions more.  That is what these petitions are about.
