Open Thread

Only a few days into this month, and yet already we have some pretty outrageous stories. The two stories that bugged me most so far:

  • The WSJ story about Bush's administration's statement that our President is totally above the law. I guess it's because God gave him infinite wisdom and this justifies his right to create his own laws. (See Billmon for a great take on this.)

  • Microsoft is granted a patent for double click. GAG. What a technical innovation! And I thought that drug companies were bad when all they did was invent new drugs that were slight variants from previous best sellers when their patents were expiring.

What other stories have raised your hackles? It's your turn now.
