The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

OWS Future—Scott Turow proposal

Lawyer and Novelist Scott Turow has proposed the OWS movement make as its goal the enactment of a Constitutional Amendment limiting that free speech which is in the form of campaign spending.  Usually, in these kinds of incidents, the person proposing does not go down all the possible rabbit holes this kind of thing could create, because the proposal is "good" and "what could go wrong?".  But, in the back of my mind I remember the RICO statute, which had a laser like focus on organized crime and then ended up being used against abortion protesters.  What could go wrong?  Lawyers.

Here is the proposal:
The Congress and the States shall regulate the direct and indirect expenditure of private funds on the electoral process in order to ensure that no group, entity or individual exercises unequal influence on an election by those means.
Will this include The New York Times and The Boston Globe as one entity for the purposes of reporting, or two?

If you want to see a discussion, you can go to the Althouse Blog.
