The Ambassadors of Basketball

On Thursday, the Georgetown University men’s basketball team, which is currently on a good will tour in China, forgot about the good will part and engaged in a bench-clearing brawl with the Bayi Rockets.

What I find interesting about the brawl is the way in which the Chinese players stand at the bench before a slight melee occurs and then run, almost in formation, to attack Georgetown. While I am not the blog's resident conspiracy theorist, the high level of coordination to fight and not restrain seems unfortunate to say the least.

Head Slowly Exploding

So, I caught up in a research project. I have a Friday deadline.

While writing the last section of a research paper, I found myself in need of a little more research on religious exemptions concerning same-sex marriages. After feeling my mind slowly go numb from reading article after article, I found the following sentence and decided it is too good not to share:

"The New Jersey Supreme Court's decision in Lewis v. Harris is likely the most significant gay rights case since Goodridge, largely because it was decided by the supreme court of a major state."
After reading this, of course, I thought to myself: who the hell thinks New Jersey is a major state?

If your interested, the article in question is from: 30 Harv. J.L. & Pub. Pol'y 939. I'm too tired for a full citation. Fail me.

Trial By Media is a Bad Idea; or, a Rant

I didn't even follow the Casey Anthony murder trial because first of all wall to wall media coverage of a murder trial is stupid and base, and second of all I wouldnt have had time even had I wanted to.

That said, I am pretty sickened by the outcry against the jury's verdict today. The internet is blowing up with commenters outraged by the idea that the prosecution had to meet the burden of proof in this case, since everybody "knows" she did it.

Fuck CNN. Fuck our corporate media. Sometimes, sometimes I think Hugo Chavez has it right. Not often. But sometimes. Because Whatever sells, whatever makes money is what we get when we have a for profit media. Sell wars, sell Tiller the Baby Killer, sell guilty verdicts, sell Viagra, it's all the same to these fucking people.

Maybe I am a coward for writing this here instead of on my facebook page. God knows I havent seen a single one of my facebook friends come out and say, hey, they have to prove guilt, they have to remove doubt, and it doesnt matter what CNN anchors or Fox anchors or Dick Vitale or YOU, O Crusading American public, think about the case. So shut the fuck up. The right to a defense and the burden of proof being on the prosecution is not an inconvenience.

Anyway. Fuck it. Some things you just cant change. Most things in fact.

The Hamburger Method:

A delicious way to learn the five-paragraph essay.
