FBI enlists Mormon Church for Big Brother DB
Salt Lake City Tribune | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The FBI is consulting LDS Church computer experts who oversee the institution's vast genealogy database to help rebuild the bureau's outdated information system. ... Mormon officials are providing advice for developing name-recognition programs that would assist authorities in finding and tracking suspects." No big deal. The interesting part: "Among its features is a security system that will allow senior officials to check who is accessing confidential files." This is known as usage auditing - THEY NEVER HAD THIS?!?!!!

Meathead swings both ways
Washington Post | Submitted by: Bill Gonzo
This is from the Highest Authority in the land, though a bit late in coming: "Nixon seems to have concluded, against all evidence, that Meathead is bisexual. Possibly it is the length of his hair. Another character in the show, Nixon reports, is "obviously queer. He wears an ascot, and so forth." "I don't want to see this country to go that way. You know what happened to the Greeks. Homosexuality destroyed them. Sure, Aristotle was a homo, we all know that, so was Socrates."

Sing Sing guard jailed for trashcompacting kittens
Associated Press | Submitted by: Rio
"A former prison guard who crushed five kittens in a trash compactor at Sing Sing was sentenced Friday to a year in jail by a judge who said the crime was "so offensive and so calculated and so gratuitously cruel it diminishes the humanity of everybody." Ronald Hunlock had "searched the inmate's cell, found five newborn kittens and their mother and ordered the inmate to put them in the compactor. When the inmate refused, Hunlock did it himself. The mother cat escaped but the kittens were crushed."

New Anti-Copy bill is scariest proposal yet
Wired | Submitted by: Soylent
"Legal experts said on Friday that the CBDTPA regulates nearly any program, in source or object code, that runs on a PC or anything else with a microprocessor. That's not just Windows media players and their brethren, as you might expect. The CBDTPA's sweeping definition of "any hardware or software" includes word processors, spreadsheets, operating systems, compilers, programming languages -- all the way down to humble Unix utilities like "cp" and "cat."

Jupiterian graffiti perplexing
Citybeat | Submitted by: Daoloth
"Someone is planting bizarre messages on tiles embedded in the road surface. What the tiles are made of, who is placing them and how they get away with it: all of these questions remain unanswered. What is known is this: We are not alone. The mysterious tiles have been spotted in roads throughout the Western Hemisphere... And what do English historian Arnold Toynbee and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, creator of Dr. Strangelove and 2001: A Space Odyssey, have to do with resurrecting the dead on planet Jupiter?"
