Yes, this is the same Rhodes Scholar mentioned at 12:59PM in David's blog.

Curt's reposted a Reuters story:
Universal's plan involves shipping hundreds of thousands of empty cds - a full 10% of its record catalog - to record stores nationwide. The cds will be placed into store shelves and will appear to be identical to other artist cds, with identical artwork, labels, and liner notes. However, the cds themselves will be empty save for a recorded announcement from Hilary Rosen, president of the RIAA.
(Emphasis mine)

Look what my girlfriend smuggled across the border for me last weekend:

Ben and Jerry's Icecream!

Yes, that's right, 8 cartoons of Ben and Jerry's icecream (including flavours that were never available here!) which is no longer being sold in Canada because of some distribution issues.

Thanks Nat!

Father: Separate School Bathrooms For Lesbians
[E]ducation officials have rejected a discrimination claim filed by a parent who argued that his daughter should not have to share restrooms or dressing areas with lesbian students.

Ugh yeah. I guess this father forgot that we don't live in the dark ages any more.

Anyhow, I'm pro co-ed washrooms and pro co-ed dorm rooms.

The gauntlet has been thrown in the television battle with this Dear occupants letter.

For those un-familiar with the situation the background to the letter is this: Our house has a 52" television and a group of non-occupants regularly watch Star Trek on it. A previous complaint about the situation from me can be found here.

We held a meeting last night to discuss our plan of action. If you have any suggestions we'd welcome them. But of course we find this whole situation rather absurd.
