Blind justice

An Assamese man was just released after being imprisoned for half a century without a trial. They say justice is blind. Well, it sure was blind to the plight of this poor fella.

WordPress users under my wing

Thanks, Carthik. I've created a file called "WordPress suggestions" that I keep updating when I find an issue I can help with. When that file gets large enough, I'll mail it to you. For the record, people I've moved from MT to WordPress (or just started them off with WP) include Ravikiran, Yazad, Ravages, Aditya, Prabhu, Anita, Charu, Kingsley, Muthu, and Sandeep.
As I told you, I've not moved this blog to WP only because I run two blogs in one, and having to log out and log in is too much of a pain in the arse.

Delhi people are rich

Delhiites splurge the max, says HindustanTimes.com. This is why I file my tax returns there. Insects like me don't register on the radar there.

Modi the Nazi continues

The Gujarat government has just declared that marriages without parental consent are not to be registered. So if you're a couple in your mid-twenties who want to get married even though your parents don't approve, too damn bad. How can the government go about infringing on individual freedoms like this? But it's probably in conflict with the Special Marriages Act at least. The kicker is this comment by a government lackey: "Around 15-20% of registered marriages are cases of elopement. We wanted to stop this."

Big airlines cry for mommy

Big airlines seek entry barriers against low-cost rivals, says the Economic Times. Poor babies. They're getting hurt by the cheaper competition so they want the government to protect them. Cry me a freakin' river. I can't stand moves to restrict free enterprise.
