European Cities Do Away with Traffic Signs
By Matthias Schulz
Are streets without traffic signs conceivable? Seven cities and regions in Europe are giving it a try -- with good results.
"We reject every form of legislation," the Russian aristocrat and "father of anarchism" Mikhail Bakunin once thundered. The czar banished him to Siberia. But now it seems his ideas are being rediscovered.
Read the whole article, at first it seems a great way to kill alot of people, but the article states that accident rates are dropping. Not to sure how viable this would be in the U.S. with the mentality of most drivers, but it does seem to be working in places in Europe.
I see that MVRWC posted on this also.
Gunman dies after storming school
Last Updated: Monday, 20 November 2006, 12:03 GMT
A gunman has been found dead after storming a school in Germany, injuring a teacher and several pupils.
According to reports, explosive material was found on the body of the man, who had entered the school in Emsdetten at 0830GMT.
Police have however not yet said how the man, who is reported to have been a former pupil of the school, died.
Seems no one was killed but the gunman (8 injured however) so a definite good ending to the situation(imo).

URGENT: PRIVACY for bloggers/website owners
If you are a blogger or have any website you NEED TO READ THIS.

I was just doing a Google search looking for sploggers scraping my content, and found this: Domain Directory.

I suppose this is a nice idea in theory (I’m not sure why I’d use it, but apparently someone will), BUT! I just happened to look at someone else’s domain listing there, and they had full personal information there. Real name, everything. This despite the fact that the blogger in question pays for a privacy service on the domain.
Click-thru to Beth's site and read the whole entry. I checked mine out (good) and you should too.

In ‘88, Pelosi Voted to Impeach Hastings — Will She Support Him Now?
Pelosi, Hoyer, Conyers, Rangel, Frank, Waxman — they all voted to impeach.
On August 3, 1988, the House of Representatives voted on a resolution, co-sponsored by Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, to impeach Alcee Hastings, the federal judge in Florida accused of conspiring to take a bribe. On that day 18 years ago, some of the Democrats who are today preparing to take power in the House were relatively new to the job; others were, even then, veterans who had served in Congress for years. For both, the vote was a rarity; Hastings was just the 10th judge in U.S. history to face impeachment.
One of the newcomers to the House was the future Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had been in office a little more than a year. She voted to impeach Hastings.
The list of democrats (current and former) that voted to impeach is astounding, most of these same people are now backing Hastings for the chairmanship of the Intel. committee ><
