Jeff Kent retired today after a 17 year career. He's probably the best second baseman of the last two decades, and is pretty much a sure shot Hall of Famer.
A little disturbing-a NSA whistleblower is claiming that the NSA eavesdropped on a lot more conversations than previously thought.
The Oscar nominations came out. As usual, outside of the animated films, I have seen none of them. I am a little surprised they didn't nominate "Dark Knight" for best picture.
This is cute-a 11 month old got his father busted by calling 911. When the police arrived, they found the father's marijuana growing operation. This actually happened to me, except without the marijuana growing part. One morning, while waiting for my wife to finish dressing, I was watching my son play with the phone. I took it away from him, but 10 or so minutes later, the police were at our door. We reassured them that we were fine, but they still came in to make sure I wasn't beating my wife.
This is really interesting-after the tragic BART killing around the holiday, apparently the police took cameras from some witnesses. I have always wondered if they actually had the right to do this. According to this blogger, they really don't. As some of the commenters point out, it's not like most people are really going to test this theory.
