…my natal state, from whom I am an economic and political refugee, how did you get so totally screwed? What unholy convocation of Communists and Calvinists made you what you are?
First today I learned that the State Police seem to think they have a right to the contents of one’s smart phone. What probable cause besides breathing gives them such a right has not yet been clarified legally, though the ACLU is working on it. Of the people whose phones have been copied, I have to wonder how many were victims of patdowns and how many gave it up willingly to avoid trouble.
Now I find through John Venlet and the incomparable Ms. DeCoster that the MI Secretary of State (= Department of Motor Vehicles), always several rungs of Hell worse than the equivalent in Ohio, now requires you to wait in line to get a number to wait in line to get your license plates.
