A Day in the Life of the Soros Empire

    David Gainor writes at the Wall Street Journal: “Then we come to the nationwide ‘union’ protest – the so-called ‘rally to save the American Dream’ that got widespread coverage. Around America, pro-union groups rallied to ‘stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin.’ More than half that list of at 43 organizations involved as of Thursday gets money either directly or indirectly from King George. They might all get money from him. No reporter bothered to ask . . . And again, the Soros connection went unreported”

Armies of Expensive Lawyers, Replaced by Cheaper Software

    NY Times: Quantifying the employment impact of these new technologies is difficult. Mike Lynch, the founder of Autonomy, is convinced that “legal is a sector that will likely employ fewer, not more, people in the U.S. in the future.” He estimated that the shift from manual document discovery to e-discovery would lead to a manpower reduction in which one lawyer would suffice for work that once required 500 and that the newest generation of software, which can detect duplicates and find clusters of important documents on a particular topic, could cut the head count by another 50 percent.

Religious Figures Weigh In On BYU Brandon Davies Dismissal from Basketball Team

    GodDiscussion.com: Gregory S. Baylor, Senior Counsel – University Project, at the Christian conservative legal organization, the Alliance Defense Fund, applauds BYU’s decision: Give credit to BYU for not making an exception to the honor code for a star athlete on a team that might legitimately compete for a national championship. BYU’s action demonstrates that it values its institutional integrity and religious commitment s more than the prestige and and plaudits that come with athletic success. Also give credit to BYU for embracing and maintaining a stance on human sexuality that is utterly countercultural, particularly when it comes to college life. Many believe that college is a time for complete sexual license, and BYU refuses to float along in the cultural currents. Good for them.
