Slow News Day Open Thread

I'm actually looking. I'm just not finding. I'm not just sitting around scratching my butt.

Looks like it's going to be an Opinion sort of day.

Obama's declaration of high-level negotiations with John Boehner -- oh wait, I mean Iran -- is news, I guess.

CNN called Obama's speech "historic" before he even said a word.

This is a good catch, from the New Editor: some Democrats say that it's crazy to claim Obama rammed ObamaCare down our throats; it was Republicans' fault, you see.

On the other hand, Richard Trumka actually says Obama rammed ObamaCare down the nation's throat, and that's awesome.

Via @rdbrewer4 in the sidebar, a professor has been charged with taking covert upskirt/downblouse video of his students.

-A college professor who used a camera pen to secretly film under the clothing of two students explained to police that he was attempting to gather evidence that one of the women “was not wearing undergarments,” which he thought was “inappropriate,” according to a police report.

Pete Townshend just emailed me to say he was trying to prove all the child pornography that he was downloading was similarly "inappropriate."

The cops got him to crumble on his alibi. This is pretty funny:

After being read his Miranda rights, Samuelson (seen at left) claimed that he was “attempting to gather proof” that one of the women “was not wearing undergarments” in class. When asked about the occasions during which he “directed the camera pen at students’ breasts,” Samuelson “acknowledged that this activity was ‘inappropriate.’”

Oh sure, the downblouse stuff? That was inappropriate of me. I cop to that.

But I swear the upskirt shots were just to prove those dirty little girls were dressing unprofessionally.

Half-in half-out never works in a lie.*

*I'm lying. Sometimes it does. Maybe about half the time.
