    Ray CharlesI'd have to say my first experience with Ray Charles was watching the original Blues Brothers movie way back in 3rd Grade or so. He was an amazing musician.

  3. Going after drug companies

    When Drug Companies Hide Data is an interesting editorial about drug companies skewing data to push a product into the market prematurely. I know people who can't tolerate scientists who can't conduct real trials for the simplest of things. To screw around with something that could be potentially dangerous is unacceptable.

  4. Where have I been?

    I figure I’ll try and post some actual things tonight after work, but since I’ve been dormant lately here’s some wacky things from Reuters.

    • Human Time Capsule – A Japanese man was found dead, in what seems to be a squatters apartment, after 20 years. I just wanna know if, besides the “pajama-clad skeleton,” someone documented the findings. No one had been in there for 20 years, it’d be interesting.
    • Players’ Wives Give Team Lucky Strip – Some significant others of the Russian soccer team posed naked to perk up the team for Euro 2004™.
    • Update: No Sex Before Games, Please, Says Germany Doctor – Poor Germans, while the Russians will be “getting a boost” from their wives and girlfriends, they have to go cold turkey.

    In preparation for the MBTA to start randomly searching its riders, I've prepared for this questionably legal possibility by putting the US Constitution on my iPod for easy access. Perhaps Adam should list this on his MBTA Search Page

    I particularly enjoy Amendment Four in this situation:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probably cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    I think that's pretty straight forward. On the other hand I don't want to be a dick to a police officer, 99% of whom are just looking out for the public's well-being. I'll be polite in my declination of their search request, and see how that goes. When we start randomly searching Americans and demanding identification... what rights are left that we're really protecting? When will they be tossed aside for "security's sakes?"
