Burning Man

I hate being woken by Campus Safety. And now? Now I go down to the parking office. Remember me.

Read this /. article on sex offenders and tracking them with GPS for the rest of their life first.

Let's go over the reasons for imprisionment again:
  • Punishment—Simply, "tsk, tsk, don't do that again." Frankly, a bad justification, as we are not three-year-olds.
  • Deterrant—Obviously you ain't doin' a good job of deterring people if you cannot trust them to not do it again!
  • Reformation—See above
This country really needs to take a long, critical look at its attitudes and policies towards sex, violence, punishment, love, drugs, and everything else. I pray we can get at least one slightly more sane law on the books from it.
  • Current Music
    Lacuna Coil - Reverie


One of the few reasons I'd come back to RIT is if Mindless Self Indulgence were to play here. Imagine the poor interpreters!
