    Best what? Like Time Magazine's "Man of the Year" it can just be the most interesting in some way, right?

    So I'm going with Primus' "Busting Mine, Protecting Yours" from a couple months ago.

    I know I'm breaking the rules the OP laid out, but if don't vote for mine, my all knowing, super intelligent, beautiful, wife will know it! Her sister is a photographer, and for a wedding present, they did a large portfolio for me.

    A better question might be, who has allowed the display of avatars/signatures/icons/smilies and such non-text graffiti?

    well, if everyone else is doing it, I'm going to have to say "mine", simply because mine references something I was personally involved in.

    david, I like the idea put forward in yours. However, when jury instructions are being discussed and the jury is not in the courtroom, certain "people" (and I use the term loosely) on the prosecution team pull faces similar to that seen on the kid who just got wedgied and crying "no, no, we can't tell them that" if informing the jury of their right and duty of nullification is so much as hinted at.

    Courts all over have rubber-stamped excluding nullification instructions and almost all wholeheartedly approves of not allowing jury instructions to include nullification.

    I have spoken to prosecutors and they think that a jurist nullifying is illegal and violates the jurist oath ... this is false.

    Who decides the law in this country? The people do. Pass as many laws as they like, the laws must pass muster with the people. Its the only partial democratic process left.

    Nope. Jury selection by lottery is democratic.
    Democracy arose from the idea that those who are equal in any respect are equal absolutely. All are alike free, therefore they claim that all are free absolutely... The next is when the democrats, on the grounds that they are all equal, claim equal participation in everything. [ ... ] It is accepted as democratic when public offices are allocated by lot; and as oligarchic when they are filled by election. Aristotle, Politics
    From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sortition#Ancient_Athens

    In Athens, "democracy" (literally meaning rule by the people) was in opposition to those supporting oligarchy (rule by a few). Athenian democracy was characterised by being run by the "many" (the ordinary people) who were allotted to the committees which ran government. Thucydides has Pericles make this point in his Funeral Oration: "It is administered by the many instead of the few; that is why it is called a democracy."

    The Athenians believed sortition to be more democratic than elections and used complex procedures with purpose-built allotment machines (kleroteria) to avoid the corrupt practices used by oligarchs to buy their way into office. According to the author Mogens Herman Hansen the citizen's court was superior to the assembly because the allotted members swore an oath which ordinary citizens in the assembly did not and therefore the court could annul the decisions of the assembly. Both Aristotle and Herodotus (one of the earliest writers on democracy) emphasize selection by lot as a test of democracy:

    The rule of the people has the fairest name of all, equality (isonomia), and does none of the things that a monarch does. The lot determines offices, power is held accountable, and deliberation is conducted in public.

    Would someone please tell me why davidmcbeth is trolling for dates?

    Or is he just upping his post count?

    Or is he -- no, I'm no longer licensed by the state to offer diagnostic opinions. Such a shame!

    What was the one that was taken from you? Someone had a certain set of skills. I guess.
