Title: "Legally BLACK, Nero in White Satin"


Liberty forgone, duty unbound
Jury seeks justice in his absentminded excuses
9 monks, 12 monkeys
Numbers may vary upon time and place
But the show is ON 24 hours.

Ontology of crime fans eternal fire in sim city
Sirens alerted traffic study
Crossing George Washington Bridge
Testimony before an assembly of Orange Cones
'Tis really a dirty trick played on me'
Cried mayor of Fort Lee ! 1

Enters another baritone who sings a sad tune
'The King I love is dead ! ? '
Convicted mayor Mack is mute in Trenton's courtroom.
Re-trial? Forgive and forsake ?
"Kidding me not, FBI, Your majesty! "
Appeal hereby denied, ordered Judge from her bench. 2

Amazing grace unlike that case
involving legally blonde Sheriff Trout
Grand jury verdict sealed and thrown out. 3

O MY Lord, who says higher power do pardon
by prayers and praises alone
In my Garden State of Soprano?

Chorus: 3 voices
{ doh a deer a female deer...ray a drop of golden sun...me, a name I call myself...gay, a long long candy bar...see, a note to follow soul... LA, le-le-LA must be ... ga-ga-gay-g-Lossy-Angel-lic ? That'll bring US back to Do oh oh oh... }

Chapter 1, 'Sovereign is HE who makes exception.'

Lawmakers are WE, capable of self-govern
Troublemakers are THEY, enslaved by calamities self-inflicted?
Separation of Might and Right and All Mighty, never done before !
Safeguard national security, personal liberty and democracy
Idea borrowed from England and Scotland, where else?
One Sovereign Republic Trinity extended ?

On 2011 May 6th, Law Day celebration, in Trenton, capital city of New Jersey, with 51 other individuals, we pledged our oath of allegiance to the United State. I have been living in US since thanksgiving of 1992. Of all these years, I have never bothered to study texts of Constitution carefully until I enrolled in this class. And if I had any hesitation to solemnly declare, on oath, "that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty...', these quotations that accompany our ceremonial formation, put my mind at ease on that day:

"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power" - Alexander Hamilton, 1775

"The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, 'till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People is sacredly obligatory upon all." - George Washington, 1796

"The Declaration of Independence ...[is the] declaration charter of our rights, and of the rights of man." - Thomas Jefferson, 1819

In this class, with his gentle voice and manner, Prof. Amar made nuanced outline of how this written Constitution, debated by 65 representatives from the original 13 colonies and ratified through out the land after its publication in 1787, still maintained its supremacy and vital force to govern today's legal affairs with all its provisions embodied in terse language and lofty spirit more than a quarter century ago. I am inclined to agree with him. But an inclination pronounced should never be mistaken as a natural cause of human action. Wittgenstein says, 'This was our paradox: no course of action could be determined by a rule, because every course of action can be made to accord with the rule."

In recent years, this nation has been polarized by party politics at all branches of government. Check and balances among three branches of central government envisioned by our Framer was only a grand staircase. In my mind's eye, it can spiral upwards but also downwards. 'Nero fiddled while Rome burned to ground'.

The question we ask ought not be if democracy as an American experiment is winning the day but rather if American Emersonian perfection can keep burning from 'American scholars' to world shared experiences. To quote, "Emerson's question is: After our destitution from the prostitution of our constitution by the substitution for it of these institutions, what restitution?"4

2. Trenton Mayor Mack convicted on all 6 accounts of corruption charges by a jury.

just got back from Shawnee Inn.

posting via advodiary.py. It works. Next testing Chinese encoding...

In the first four weeks of the course, Professor Amar outlined three central themes we encounter when reading the original Constitution: democracy, national security, and slavery. Write a 500-750 word essay response, making sure to address ALL parts of the question.

"Throughout the course lectures, Professor Amar has outlined how one of the central themes of the Constitution is national security and that the Constitution reflects geostrategic concerns. What specific provisions or features of the Constitution reflect an awareness and concern with national security and geographic strategy? "

Task at hand: to understand DNS performance measurements and major client browsers configuration in regards of local DNS cache etc. Also it seems ever since I started poking around bitcoin network, there is repeated outside packets/interests to gain my home router administrative access. From Satoshi client console, I started to lower banscore to 20 for inbound peers.

"In this article, I will focus on measuring authoritative DNS server performance and will cover the more complex recursive DNS server performance in a follow-up article. - See more at:

"L'enfer, c'est les autres!" said Sartre, and Sheila Heti thinks he may have been on to something, as she ponders whether it's possible to quit people. Plus, a solipsist questions whether other people even exist in the first place, and Josh realizes he's going to hell and had better make the most of it. Featuring Joshua Karpati and Michael David Crawford.

Is that a different MDC, or the very same MDC who once married to a Canadian Cinderella ?

house lost power for two days due to Sandy. no dial-tone on land line either which is a total surprise to me. Ordered a skype# & g3 telecom international SIM card + $49 mobile phone with keyboard... reading Chuck Moore's blog Sandy offered a good timely alert to re-think fault tolerance design paradigm in telecomm/internet service provider/supporter
