Nearly 200 current and former officers are now plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department, alleging that they were retaliated against when they tried to report misconduct, an attorney said Thursday.
"Once you become an LAPD pickle, you can never become a cucumber again," said Bradley Gage, who represents former and current officers suing the department. "All of these officers have been pickled."

I know this seems an odd question, but it is exactly what is happening
with Gale Norton's nomination for the position of Secretary of the
Interior. Gale Norton as Attorney General of Colorado participated in
numerous lawsuits against American Indian People.


Is it too much to ask the United States Senate for a Secretary of Interior
who does not file lawsuits against Indian Tribes?

Jan. 21, 2001 | WASHINGTON -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday he will return to the civil rights stage next week, reversing plans to leave public life to reconcile with his family, devastated by his extramarital affair that resulted in the birth of a daughter.
Sure didn't take Jesse long to kiss and make up with the wife.

Officer Admits Osprey Falsifying
Expect to see a lot more falsifying of this sort when Bush gears up the 'star wars' missile defense stuff again. It's the only way the military industrial contractors can keep riding the gravy train.

Giving Clinton credit for what he did right. About time the country thought to look at something other than his crotch.

Salon.com Technology | Get your laws off my coffin! "I get sick of seeing people being ripped off," says Rick Dancy of Meridian, Miss., who recently earned the distinction of being the first man in the United States to be imprisoned for selling caskets from an independent dealership. A court later found the arrest unconstitutional, and Dancy continues to sell the caskets that he buys from Casket Royale, a New Hampshire wholesaler that has dealers in 44 states.
Here's a story that many of you probably missed. Another FIRST for Mississippi.

Salon.com Technology What is IT?
It's been quite awhile since we've seen a hype-storm sweep across the Web like the one currently belonging to "Ginger" a new invention that supposedly will wow the entire world. Venture capitalist celebrity John Doerr is supposed to have invested millions, and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is all a-twitter. But no one knows exactly what it is, besides an incredibly effective marketing campaign for an as-yet-unwritten book on the product.
Watching TV this morning the ABC news crew was speculating that the IT was Individual Transport. They showed the picture of a patent application that showed what appeared to be the unicycle equivalent of the Xooter (scooter). The illustration showed a man standing on a platform supported by one fat wheel of the variety you might see on the rear of a riding lawing mower. No mention was made of the inherently obvious balance problems associated with such a devise. It's all still speculation at this point.

Salon.com Politics | New Jersey's Whitman employed aliens too Christie Whitman, President-elect Bush's nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency, acknowledged seven years ago that she had provided housing and money to an illegal alien couple.
Timslantz - Looks like the upscale noblesse of both parties are getting caught up in their use of cheap (and still technically illegal) immigrant labor. The issue of illegal immigration has been discussed over more than one lunch at El Charro as we struggled to 'comprehende' with the waiters. The issue is truly a local one for the folks around Jackson. An immigration checkpoint set up outside Clinton netted an impressive number of illegal aliens moving along Interstate 20. It is the position of The Times that the savings gained in the use of cheap and illegal labor is lost when compared to the added burden on our social and legal services. It is in our own best interests to enforce these laws. We at The Times promise that should we ever hit the big time we will only use documented tax paying AMERICAN labor. Until then, I'm mowing my own lawn.
