Leicester Mercury: Picture Gallery: King Richard III Tomb revealed at Leicester Cathedral
Shakespeare gave him a bad rap. Time for an epic movie that sets the record straight. [rdbrewer]

Glenn Reynolds, USA Today: You are probably breaking the law right now
"'Regulatory crimes' of this sort are incredibly numerous and a category that is growing quickly. They are the ones likely to trap unwary individuals into being felons without knowing it. That is why Michael Cottone, in a just-published Tennessee Law Review article, suggests that maybe the old presumption that individuals know the law is outdated, unfair and maybe even unconstitutional.... Amusingly, government officials who break the law do get to plead ignorance and good intentions, under the doctrine of good faith 'qualified immunity.' Just not us proles." [rdbrewer]

Google controls what we buy, the news we read ó and Obamaís policies
Via Drudge. "Google lobbyists met with Obama White House officials 230 times.... Oh, and on Election Night 2012, guess where Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt was? Working for the president. In the presidentís campaign office." [rdbrewer]

Radley Balko: Absurd Fourth Circuit ruling embodies everything thatís wrong with drug raids
A guy got shot in the face for no reason. Before the American Revolution, "British soldiers could serve warrants only during the day. And they were always required to knock, announce themselves, announce their purpose and give the resident time and opportunity to come to the door to let them in peacefully." So even then colonists had more protections. Now we have goons who opt for no-knock raids because Its Fun!!! And there's probably a little bonus pay involved, right? [rdbrewer]

CJ Ciaramella: Criminal Justice Reform Movement Gaining Momentum
"'There is a growing consensus across the political spectrum that our criminal justice system is in need of reform,' Goodlatte said in his video statement. 'The issue of over-criminalization is an issue of liberty.'" Grassley is in the way. "Gingrich said he is confident that Grassley can be assuaged, and that the current alliance between the younger, libertarian wing of the Republican caucus and progressive Democrats will continue to widen." [rdbrewer]

Jonathan Last: The Campus Left Begins to Implode
"[W]e may be witnessing the first dawning realization on the left about the problems inherent in their movement. Allow me to present three pieces, each from a liberal looking at contemporary campus politics." [rdbrewer]

Obamacare flying machine begins a death spiral
"Premiums are rising rapidly and the young and healthy are bailing out." It happened before. "Eight states learned this the hard way in the 1990s when they enacted two policies known as 'community rating' and 'guaranteed issue,' requiring health insurers to sell coverage...." [rdbrewer]

Meet Chuck Schumer, One of the Most Trivial Pols Ever. And Your Next Senate Minority Leader
"Which brings us back to Chuck Schumer, our next Senate Minority Leader and a demonstrated foe of just about every possible innovation or reality that for whatever furshlugginer reason drives a bug up his ass. Including that time he called a flight attendant 'a bitch' because she was enforcing a cell phone ban that I'm sure he's totally in favor of for everyone else." [rdbrewer]

As Jon Stewart said last night, we're now punching ourselves in the dick. We've removed the middleman. How long will Democrats continue standing by our narcissist-sociopath president? [rdbrewer]
