If you’re a California resident and you allowed the state government to withhold too much money from your paycheck, you may be out of luck. The state has given itself a 30-day reprieve for refunding the money money it owes to 2.74 million taxpayers (ain’t it great how the government can do that?) because the state treasury is dry. It’s not looking particularly promising after that 30-day delay, either. The state’s general fund has been empty for 17 months. Why do I get the feeling we non-Californians are going to end up footing the bill for this?

I’ve thought this would be a good idea for a long time. I’ve always thought someone could also make money marketing a cheap, inconspicuous camera or audio recorder for the car to record traffic stops, but one that uploads content immediately to an off-site server.
“Batman” arrested in Tampa. I’m having a hard time seeing how the law the cop cited for the arrest is constitutional.
“Take Bacon. Add sausage.” Okay. I’m listening.
“If I am sleeping and I am being recorded, that can be used as political gain.”
