1) Apparently Washington's Legislature got tired of prosecutors having to prove guilt in DUI cases. They just couldn't get their breath testing machines to work properly. The solution? Just announce - ex cathedra - that the results come in whether the machine was screwed up or not. The only question is whether the infallibility lies in the Legislature, the prosecutor, the machine, or the neo-prohibs.
2) FBI forming an Artsy-Fartsy Task Force. J. Edgar Hoover is spinning in his grave.
3) Big Brother is everywhere. In particular, the D.C. police setting up cameras without approval, or even notice, is disturbing. The constant excuse? There is no expectation of privacy in a public area.
