A Busy Day In The Law

Imperial Walker
defeated by Constitution!
Some slight limit on the personal rights of corporations has surfaced in today's FCC v. AT&T. Whether this is a meaningful limitation on Citizens United or just an anamoly in a particularly egregious case remains to be seen, but it is difficult to square the two cases (regardless of the embarassed hand-waving of Roberts) since the former was (ostensbly) decided on constitutional grounds and the latter was (apparantly) statutory (and therefore subserviant to the Constitution).


And on the state Constitutional front, it appears that Wisconsin's state constitutional requirement of an open legislature has (perhaps temporarily) resulted in a court order barring an imperial executive's desire to sweep the rabble from the Capitol (insert mandatory jokes about the Imperial Walker.)

The CEO, the Union Guy, and the Tea Partier are sitting at a table....

A unionized public employee, a teapartier, and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table is a plate with a dozen cookies on it.

The CEO reaches across and takes 11 cookies, then looks at the teapartier and says "Watch out for that union guy-- he wants a piece of your cookie!"

Microchannel News More Relevant than Corporate Media?

The reluctance of corporate-owned media to cover the largest demonstrations since Bush's warmup to war, and possibly since Vietnam ( ... more people came to Madison yesterday in the snow than showed up at Beckapaloosa on a pleasant summer day ... ) seems to be encouraging alternate channels of information. Why should anyone with a smartphone watch CNN's rerun of Iman's beauty tips when they can choose dozens of a relevant YouTube channels.

This may be only the dream of a technology fanboy, but then again, maybe not; if evolution runs on variation plus selection, the reduction in the cost of variation in news microchannels may let selection drive innovation. This force may offset the growing domination of human life by corporate life.
