This may hurt a little…

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

From this story:

“The officer sustained facial cuts requiring stitches and a concussion…”

I can just imagine the emergency room: “Okay, sir, we have the cuts all stitched up now. For this last step, we’ll need Bruno to beat you about the head with a brick.”

Texas May have Banned Marriage

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Texas passed an amendment in 2005 with the intent of banning gay-marriage. But they may have banned more than they intended.

The amendment contains the text:

This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.

Logically, it seems like “marriage” is a member of the set of legal statuses “identical or similar to marriage”. Of course, there’s no telling how a judge would interpret the idea of something being “identical or similar” to itself.
