Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

The Nanny State has a message for parents: keep your teenagers on a short leash, or we'll throw you in jail.
Eight states have specific "social host" laws that say parents can get in trouble if underage guests are drinking, even if no one gets hurt, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Sixteen other states have laws that hold Mom and Dad legally responsible for underage drinking under certain circumstances — for example, if a teen who drank at their home got into a car accident, NIH said. In other states, parents can get in trouble under more general liability laws.
So, just to be clear. If your teenage daughter wants birth control pills or has an abortion, you don't have the right to know. And if you try to interfere, you go to jail.
But if your teenage daughter drinks a beer in the backyard, even if you didn't know, you go to jail.
That in a nutshell is the topsy-turvy world of liberal fascism.
Speaking of fascism, in a little over 24 hours the incandescent light bulb ban goes into effect.
What's that? You thought it was repealed? Uh, no. Congress defunded enforcement of the ban. But with the law still on the books manufacturers and retailers have decided it's prudent to comply anyway.
You only have the right to "choose" when it comes to the life of your unborn child. But you have no rights when it comes to whatever the liberal fascists have decided is best for you. Seat belts. Pasteurized milk. Recycling. Lawn fertilizer. Dish soap. Toilets and showerheads. Smoking. And now light bulbs. They mean to control everything.
The War on Drugs claimed another victim — a car.
When Pompton Lakes police seized Darren Richardson's car on a rainy September afternoon, they told him it was headed for an impound lot. When they returned it three weeks later, he says, the 2004 BMW belonged in a junk yard.
The instrument cluster and leather dashboard were gone. The caramel-colored seats were torn up. The gear shift was ripped out and stray wires hung limp everywhere. Geico, Richardson's insurance company estimated the damage at $12,636.42 . more than he paid for the car — and declared the vehicle a "total loss."
According to police reports, the damage to the black BMW 325i came in the aftermath of a traffic stop during which officers detected a "strong odor of raw marijuana" inside the vehicle. Searching for a cache of drugs, members of three different police agencies and a detective from a federal drug task force spent two days tearing the car apart, the reports said.
So what did police find after their $12,000 search?
I detect a strong odor of bullshit.
Mr. Richardson is suing the town. But the cops who trashed his car are immune from accountability. The Barney Fife squad will probably receive promotions for "diligence."
Because what's private property when the state presumes you're guilty until proven innocent?
