Federal Judge Rules California Can Force-Feed Protesting Prisoners

Don Thompson (writing for the Associated Press or for the Huffington Post, or for some weirdly incestuous amalgam of the two) writes:

U.S. military officials came under heavy criticism from human rights advocates when they snaked feeding tubes through the noses and into the stomachs of terror suspects who refused to eat.

California prison officials won a court order Monday saying they could force-feed dozens of inmates who have been on a hunger strike for six weeks over solitary confinement conditions.

We've already decided not to give a rat's ass about the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, so why continue giving a shit about the Eighth? We need to keep our prisoners strong, so they can manufacture things for the good of the Republic.

Palo Alto Named Second-Most-Educated City in U.S.

Camira Powell of Peninsula Press:

An analysis done by the consumer resource site NerdWallet concludes that Palo Alto is the second “most educated” place in the nation. As the home of desirable Stanford University, innovative technology companies like IDEO and Hewlett-Packard, it makes sense that this Bay Area enclave climbs to the top.

Somebody ought to work out in which city you’re most likely to be trampled to death by oblivious, shallow, self-absorbed douchebags. I bet Palo Alto would rank pretty highly on that list, too.
