oh, please
singer brandy was involved in a fatal accident last month. have you heard about it? if not, read about it here.

now a civil rights group is claiming that brandy is being unfairly targeted for prosecution because she is a celebrity. um, no. not really. she's being targeted for prosecution because she killed someone with her car. the law calls that vehicular manslaughter and it has nothing to do with fame, race, age or gender.

while we're on the subject of law, i was asked, yet again, to fill out a questionnaire to determine my eligibility to serve jury duty. i've already served once before, so doesn't the state keep that information on file? of course not, that would be too logical!

when i received the request, there was an option to fill out the request online. so i did. easy peasy! this was about three weeks ago. this monday i received another request because they don't seem to have a record of my responses. so you can fill out a questionnaire online in theory, but not if you want the information to actually be logged in as received.

they want me to fill it out again. wtf? i have a real problem with this. if you are going to spend (tax) money to hire an IT professional to update your website to include the eligibility questionnaire, then it should actually work. the person on the other end who gets this information should know what to do with it, making it a seamless process. but then again, we are talking about the government so i should know better, shouldn't i?

the state loves me because i've been in the same place for a long time and i vote way too regularly. now it is easy for them to find me!
