That Time I Turned a Routine Traffic Ticket into the Constitutional Trial of the Century

quote [ Laws that give municipal officials and their private contractors power to issue tickets via traffic cameras confer powers of both criminal and civil law while excusing them from the due process duties of both criminal and civil law. ]

Hardly a trial of a century. I can't wait until self driving cars put speeding cameras and traffic cops out of business.

A Gender

quote [ I?m going to tell you something I?ve been afraid to say for basically ever. And it?s gonna be messy, and it?s gonna go to some dark places (including eating disorders so pls be advised) because I?m barfing my heart out onto the page and hoping I can do it fast enough that I won?t reconsider, or hold back. I can?t say all this without first pausing to say this is only my story, and it?s a privilege that I am able to share it. I want to gently remind people that I?m only trying to speak for me and my own experiences, and in no way does that change or speak to others? realities. I?m coming out (holy shit typing that made me anxious), so this is just my story.

My entire life I?ve not been a girl or a woman. ]

And in addition to serving up delicious examples of French cuisine, these former criminals are learning valuable skills to help them get a second chance in life. ]

Good Luck, Morons: Lazarus Lake and His Impossible Race

quote [ Thirty years ago, an East Tennessee guy with the unlikely name of Lazarus started the most demanding footrace in the world. The Barkley Marathons were already famous among extreme athletes, and then, a 2014 documentary film brought the wider world?s attention. The story of the race is great. The story of the man behind it is even better. That is, if Lazarus Lake really exists. ]

Poet: I can?t answer questions on Texas standardized tests about my own poems

quote [ Badly worded or poorly conceived questions on standardized tests are not uncommon. But here?s something new: The author of source material on two Texas standardized tests says she can?t actually answer the questions about her own work because they are so poorly conceived. She also says she can?t understand why at least one of her poems ? which she calls her ?most neurotic? ? was included on a standardized test for students. ]

Man buys stacks of local newspapers following DWI arrest

quote [ Talbot professed that he didn?t want his mug shot in that ?rag of a newspaper.? The police press release puts matters more professionally: ?Talbot refused to provide a breath sample and further refused to be finger printed and photographed because he did not wish to appear in the local paper.? For that conduct, he caught a second-degree charge for ?obstructing governmental administration.? ]
