Meanwhile, in Australia,

A dinner party was interrupted by an even bigger feast outside that involved a snake eating a kangaroo.

Pravina de Beer’s meal for friends at her home in Australia’s Northern Territory was upstaged by the two-metre python, which had wrapped itself around the animal and was crushing it to death.
That's one thing we do not have to worry about in Oklahoma: large snakes eating the livestock.
At least not till some of them work their way up from Florida.

However, we do have our share of PC-minded farging idiots like these:
Students at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota have cancelled an event to celebrate the end of the year after complaints that bringing a camel on campus could offend those of Middle Eastern cultures.

The “Hump Day” event, put on by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), was supposed to be “a petting zoo type of atmosphere” in which students could hang out and take photos with a live camel. According to Aaron Macke, the group’s advisor, the camel is owned by a local vendor and trained for special events.
But the event was subsequently cancelled after students took to Facebook to proclaim their concerns. The students said they were concerned about the money spent on bringing the camel to campus—around $500—and the implication that it would be racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures.

Y'know, if Moms Demand and Illegal Mayors and CSGV didn't count gangbangers, they'd hardly have any children to dance in the blood of.

Seems some judges have had enough of the "We've got their stuff, now give us a warrant for everything on it" crap.  Which is as it should be.
The government apparently decided that rather than narrow its request, it would just ask another judge. It took this warrant request all the way across the nation to another magistrate judge in California, hoping to get the rubber stamp it couldn't coax out of the Washington, DC court. Judge Paul Grewal of California's Northern District has just joined Facciola in rejecting the request as being overly broad. He attacks the government's wish to "seize first, search later" approach as inappropriate for the securing of data stored by third parties, which face none of the limitations inherent to searching a computer on site.
Awful lot of judge-shopping going on with some LE.

There are reasons Limbaugh used to call her Eleanor Rodham Clift.
How far in the tank do you have to be to throw out this kind of crap?
