2 Arrested in Boston Ad Campaign Turned Bomb Scare

From The New York Times: 2 Arrested in Boston Ad Campaign Turned Bomb Scare

From the article: “Boston temporarily closed parts of bridges, subway stations, an Interstate highway and even part of the Charles River on Wednesday after the authorities found what the police described as suspicious devices at nine places.”

With all apologies to my readers from Boston (who, since they are here are clearly the intelligent ones), I have to seriously ask what the heck is wrong with people up there. They panicked, according to the mayor spending $750,000 on their reaction, over the modern equivalent of some LiteBrites. I mean, c’mon, people, Seattle, Philadelphia, New York, and other cities didn’t act like the sky was falling, so what’s up with you folks? Have your elected officials frightened you so much over “terrorism” that you become apopletic over a kid’s toy used in a gorilla marketing campaign?

Apple pays sites’ legal fees in free speech victory

From Ars Technica: Apple pays sites’ legal fees in free speech victory

From the article: “The Mac News Network is reporting that Apple has declined to to appeal its loss in last year’s Apple v. Does decision. MacNN says that Apple has paid nearly $700,000 to cover the sites’ legal fees.”

Very cool. It’s past time blogs and on-line magazines were granted a little respect, legally-speaking.
