5/13    "In a Job Market Realignment, Some Left Behind" - Yahoo! Finance:

        '.Sometimes I think I.d be better off in jail,. she says, only half
        joking. .I.d have three meals a day and structure in my life. I.d be
        able to go to school. I.d have more opportunities if I were an inmate
        than I do here trying to be a contributing member of society..'
        Why is the govt treating criminals better than law-abiding citizens?
        \_ Is this some kind of bizarre troll? This woman just got $17k of
           job training paid for by the government and also gets food stamps
           and you are complaining that we should give her more? She even has
           a steady, albeit low-paying job. If jail was really so great, she
           would already be there.
           \_ A $17K student *loan* and food stamps?  Are you seriously
              suggesting that's excessive compensation for someone with 30
              years of work experience?  -tom
              \_ You are right, we should just throw her in jail instead.

5/13    I am getting a new Macbook Pro. Should I get a glossy or matte screen?
        I always had matte in the past. I use my laptop just about everywhere
        and glare is a concern. Should I stick with matte? I noticed
        glossy is the default now.
        \_ It is weird, but I have the glossy screen that goes to the edge of
           the monitor for my 13" PB and it somehow seems bigger than the one
           with the aluminum border on my wife's Air. They both have the same
           amount of usable screen space though.
           \_ it is true. if you look at the 13" macbook border and compare
              it with the 15" macbook border, you'll see the 13" border is
              almost twice as large. this means you get a LOT less than
              13" space than the 15" (or 17") MacBook Pro. Shame on you
              Steve Jobs for deceiving  people
        \_ OP: I chose matte in the end. Glossy seemed to have too much glare
           in some situations. I tried them both at the Apple store and I
           also borrowed by coworkers' glossy screen Mac.

5/13    "Jasper Johns' 'Flag' fetches $28.6M at NYC auction"
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100512/ap_on_en_ot/us_crichton_art_auction
        Why on earth is this painting worth $28.6M?  The idea was just painting
        a copy of the US flag, and the technique looks high-school quality to
        me.
        \_ It's worth $28M because a lot of people think it is. You may not
           appreciate it, but others do.

5/13    Any opinions on the new AZ law? I think it will negatively impact
        California. We need to pass our equivalent ASAP.
        \_ why don't you just leave the US if you hate freedom so much
           \_ Agreed.  We deserve freedom of breaking laws.
        \_ Halt! Aus pass! Welkommen ein Kalifornia!
           \_ Kalifornia Uber Alles!
        \_ I doubt it will survive a Constitutional challange.
           \_ Really?  So the equivalent federal law is also unconstitutional?
              \_ There is a federal law that says you have to surrender your
                 papers to any cop if he suspects that you are illegal and
                 that you are subject to arrest if you don't carry them?
