Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

For what it's worth

While waiting for a fax confirmation at Staples copy center, I decided to surf The Firing Line, and found that Staples' WiFi hotspot disallows display of that site. Hm.

I went to The High Road, and found that I was similarly restricted from viewing that site. Hm.

They're clearly not against timewaster sites, as the server had no problems with me accessing thing on the .blogspot domain for Blogger, which is a serious time waste location on the 'Net.

As I suspect a gun bias, I'm thinking that I'll not be spending much money or time here in the future, until they get that sorted out.

My work forbids access to sites dealing with guns & weapons. It's apparently not the greatest filter there is, as I was able to get to your blog, and Tamara's, LawDogs, & a good many others of the same bent. I'm still not sure what I clicked on that brought up the prohibition of "guns and weapons," but it took me by surprise since I'd been looking at pictures of guns at ColtCCO a few moments beforehand.

Any "no guns" filter that lets someone browse my blog is a pretty geshtupid filter.

My work software won't let me go to any weapon maker site, the high road, or the cornered cat. The blocker says it is due to "violence and profanity." You'd think that a CORONER might need to find out about GUNS in his work, now wouldn't you?

IT can't undo it. GROWF

William-- That's fine. Tell 'em you'll need a PCMCIA card for your work laptop, then.

I'm a damned grad student in CJ, and I guarentee you that I could come up with the permissions at school. I had a professor who actually had written permission from the University president to surf kiddie porn sites. Shocking, for a state university. But how do you teach a class on catching child predators and stopping kiddie porn, unless you've "seen the elephant"?
