The same sculptor has some other very cool installations underwater:

A very cool underwater sculpture, incorrectly described as honoring African slaves who were thrown overboard in Middle Passage, but it's still pretty neat:

"VIctim of Love" and "Wasted Time" are my two favorite Eagles songs. Other than those the only ones I"ll leave on the radio when they start is the songs sung by Joe Walsh. Everything else gets turned off.

Cop or swat team guy lifted the sheet covering Whitney Houston's body and made comments about how she still looked good at her age. SOmeone filed a formal complaint and he got removed from his position (the complainer did).

Okay, yes, it was insensitive to lift the sheet and make those comments, but I can't imagine filing a complaint and taking it even further at this point:

Here's the thing. No one would have known until he opened his mouth. If the scene was contaminated by the sheet being lifted, then yes he should have said something. If not, he should have STFU. His big mouth made it insensitive since otherwise no one would have known.

Yeah, I figure this guy is making a bigger stink than necessary (I supposed because he's not happy they demoted him, which I udnerstand being upset over). I figure, those dealing with dead bodies and violence have a gallows humor and have hardened themselves to the daily onslaught of horrific things they have to see and discover. I am not going to slam them for not being as "sensitive" as we in the general public might want them to be.

You know, the police have become very agressive and militaristic since 9/11/2991.
I could never be a cop. What a rotten job.

They hand out tickets left and right.
It has next to nothing to do with safety and everything to do with revenue.
I'm just sayin' they create more enemies than it's worht out of piddly ass stuff, and one day whne the chips are down they're not going to get the help they need.

I think too often, cops resort to the taser when they used to use physical force. We've had people here die of a heart attack from the taser -- one guy died just sitting in his car. Yes, you should do what the cops tell you to do. But cops often give ILLEGAL commands, and I can't fault someone who knows their rights for resisting such orders. But if it means getting the taser, geez, I don't know, I think I'd do wahtever a cop told me to do. Then sue later if he violated my rights?
