The former library worker in me compels me to suggest that books be stored spine down - but the cat lover in me says "awww" :)

I've long held that the most important civil rights issue of our time is ensuring that citizens maintain their power of "sousveillance" or gazing upward, unafraid, in order to hold authority accountable. When a private person has any sort of clash with powerful figures, especially the police, he or she has only one refuge, one recourse that should overpower all other considerations. The Truth. The U.S. Constitution repeatedly emphasizes a citizen's right to that recourse. But lately, many police officers have tried to prevent people from recording arrests with their cameras and cell phones.

As I've often said, one can well-understand how human it is, when you have such a difficult and dangerous job, to wish you weren't also under a constant glare of scrutiny. But welcome to the 21st Century. Policemen and women deserve all sorts of allowances and respect when they perform their functions professionally and well. But we cannot let them win this one. Not at all, at any level. Those who resent scrutiny by their employers should seek other lines of work.

And now things seem to be falling into place on our side, for a change. Not only have several court cases repudiated camera seizures, but now the Obama Justice Department has issued a stinging rebuke to the City of Baltimore for insufficiently protecting a universal right of citizens to record public events in a non-threatening way. The existence of a right-to-record is laid out explicitly, in no uncertain terms.
The DoJ sent a letter to the attorneys for the Baltimore Police Department.

“poor acoustic window” is actually not that hard to do. Transvaginal ultrasounds are really tricky because it's usually done so early in the pregnancy that sometimes it's too small. I don't see the republican's point really, it's so small and so not life-like looking.

Cat/human relations.
This has happened to me on multiple occasions. FACT: Cats can smell an allergic person from a distance of 7 kilometers.

I think the cat was mad because he called it a dog.
