The blood bank, which relies entirely upon volunteer donors, is always trying to boost participations with raffles and other promotions. There are plenty of us who would gladly pay in blood for a couple of quiet hours every now and again when we could recline in peace and read blogs and tweets.
In order to have the kind of security that a terror trial demands, people with other business of any kind must be totally excluded from the security perimeter.
Thus, the building to house a trial with the highest security would, of necessity, be a prison. So where is there a prison with both state of the art highest security and courtroom facilities?
Back to Guantanamo.

This activity lead to rumors that the new tablet would be call iPad.

However, it could have been taken that way and one commenter did just that. He states that the GM of WDUQ is outstanding and suggests that WDUQ does [...]
For a quick rule of thumb, think of this equation:
ORIGINAL (attributable to an author)
+ WORK OF AUTHORSHIP (falls into one of ~8 categories of works protectable by federal copyright law)

In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a 5-4 majority, held that the First Amendment did not permit Congress to punish citizens, or associations composed of citizens, for expressing political opinions and struck down provisions of the McCain-Feingold Act. The majority held that there there was no principled way to distinguish between political commentary on media such as Fox News and similar commentary from a non-media group or organization, including through blogs.
Posted by Cliff Tuttle (c) 2010 There seems to be a certain amount of interest in the blawgs concerning the ABC prime time series “Deep End” which premieres on Thursday night. It seems to be Grey’s Anatomy for lawyers. Instead of interns, they stock the show with new lawyers going to work for a Wall [...]
