Over at The Good Men Project there is a new article titled Deuce Mania: A Men's Movement about men who aren't particularly down with pooping in public restrooms. So, of course who else to you turn to for thoughts on constitutionals than the editor of Constitutional Daily. Here are BL1Y's thoughts on the matter:
"Unless it’s a dire situation, I will not poop in a public bathroom. The few places that have individual rooms are fine, but with a row of stalls there’s just too little privacy.
"The worst is smaller office bathrooms with two or three stalls. The tile floor and walls cause every tiny sound to be amplified, so anyone else in the bathroom gets an earful of your bowel movements, and you can likewise be stuck listening to a coworker. Combine that with the fact that you often know who else is in the bathroom with you, and it’s just a bit too much. I’d rather give up fiber and coffee than have to dash into a meeting moments after the boss listened to me deposit last night’s dinner."

A Pakistani court has released Raymond Davis only hours after he was formally changed with murder in the shooting deaths of two Pakistani citizens in January. The US State Department initially tried to have him released on grounds of diplomatic immunity, but the relations between the US and Pakistan became very tense when it was revealed that Davis was a former green beret and is currently working as a contractor for the CIA. (If you recall, we learned from Wikileaks that in what can only be a cost-saving measure, Hilary Clinton has ordered diplomats to double as spies, complicating the whole diplomatic immunity thing ...also complicating the actual diplomacy thing too.)
Davis was released after the US government agreed to compensate the families of the shooting victims. Under the laws of Pakistan, a settlement with the victim's family can be grounds for dismissing a murder charge. Neither party revealed the amount, but the law minister of the province where the shootings occurred reported the amount as $2.4 million.
