Bear with me: I'm thinking laterally here. Maybe it wasn't her Republican neighbours who plowed her driveway; maybe it was someone a bit closer to her heart. After all, did she wake up and see some people shovelling, or did she wake up and see her driveway clear of snow? I put it to you she might have just been visited by her deity (no, not Karl Marx, the other one) during the night, who may have found the chilly driveway offensive to its sensibilities and used its power to make the driveway a bit more like home. After all we can't have Virginia saying that it was a cold day in hell before she thanked her Republican neighbours and actually have it be a cold day on her driveway.
Apologies for posting that rampant example of a Solanum Tuberosum, realising too late that I might have offended David's esteemed bar guests with wanton pictures of a normally hidden tuber. Tip jar pinged in deep penance. Bill
Why do I get feeling that the only "dic-tater" that was toppled actually resembled the following potato:
"...paraphrasing copyrighted materials without the copyright holder’s consent... " Copyright currently protects the expression of an idea rather than the idea itself; such a novel interpretation of Copyright will require rewriting of these law. Once you allow this, then free speech is dead, since you can't otherwise discuss or write about issues if these ideas (instead of a particular expression of these ideas) belong to someone and may not be used without the copyright owner's permission. Goodbye First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Barring linking is not the biggest threat to your freedoms, but extending copyright to protect ideas is. I thought Judges had to swear to uphold the Constitution?
