Not reasonable by any standards. The judge should be removed from the case and the bench.

Interesting analysis of what is happening in our politics this year.
How did it get to this point? The story of 2016 was the rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, two figures who, between them, captured close to 45 percent of all primary votes cast. Which means that nearly half of voters, across ideologies and parties, supported a figure who, at any other point in the nation's history, would have been relegated to the furthest reaches of the fringe. Why this happened is the central question of 2016, and it's on...

How did we get here? That's easy. The Community Agitator in Chief divided this great nation.

Queries that reliably return eight results, suddenly return 800K, and next time return eight results again. Like a ghost it comes and goes, no one believes you until they somehow see it for them selves. Then it's gone like a leaf on a breeze. Non deterministic type coercion from mixed type arithmetic expressions, sometimes the result type is a floating point sometimes it is an integer. Why is it so, only the data knows I suppose. You too can experience such joys and wonders when working with relational databases.

Another reason to program in a very paranoid style, never trust any system or process other than the one you're writing. On second thought, don't even trust that.

I'd rather have a bulb with a shorter life than one that spies on me. :-)
