Daily Blend: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 – Lazy Halloween

Snoopy (‘Peanuts’) and Jack-o’-lantern

I find myself with both an overabundance of blogging material and a critical lack of drive this evening, so here’re your links for the day.

  • Federal judge rules that police don’t need a warrant to install hidden surveillance cameras on private property. Comes with the usual *headdesk*-worthy Fourth Amendment distortions.
    (via @radleybalko)

  • A better phrasing: “Three ex-governors resort to predictably and embarrassingly bad arguments to oppose California death-penalty repeal”.
    (via @LilianaSegura; RT: @radleybalko)

  • Headline of the day contender.

  • Second contender, as well as another item to keep in mind if you ever find the odd soul wondering why no-one takes PETA seriously.

  • While we’re at it, have this brief, pictorial Frankenstorm retrospective:

    Stormy, partly blacked out New York City skyline shortly after Hurricane Sandy (10/30/12)

    Don’t miss this spectacular, gut-wrenching special on Hurricane Sandy’s devastation at the Boston Globe’s Big Picture feature.
