How a ’50s-Era New York Knife Law Has Landed Thousands in Jail | Village Voice
The arrogance of police and prosecutors is on full display here. That they have ruined, wilfully and avoidably, hundreds of lives is of no concern to them. The next time someone trots out the, "99% of all police officers are good guys just trying to do their job," just point them at this article. Knowing the consequences of the arrests they make, and the deceitful manner in which they routinely attempt to demonstrate (in court) that knives that are not reasonably gravity knives are gravity knives, such claims about the percentage of cops who are "good guys" doing a tough job simply cannot be credited.

The nonsensical idea that cops as a group somehow escape the normal distribution of lousy, average, and good that is evident in every other profession is as laughable as it is evidently dangerous. Any group in which we vest great power over the lives of other people should be scrutinized carefully, with suspicion being the default attitude.

From the article:
Knives are used in thousands of attacks in New York City every year, many of them fatal. But no law enforcement agency in New York City was willing, even after repeated requests, to explain what makes gravity knives more dangerous than other kinds of folding knives.

Wapp: Wapp - A Web-Application Framework for TCL
I think this could be very nifty for writing desktop apps that just happened to use the browser. If less fussy than using Python's built-in server on Windows, it could be a really nice way to write simple utility applications with a GUI.

Fascinating description from way back in 1971 about how we are all made up of billions of little creatures, including our own cells, that each seem to have their own agenda. How is it then that there is an I? Just a delightful article.
