Briefly Noted…

Well, Hizzoner managed to once again escape jail time for violating his probation. It’s really nice to see they’re letting him off without so much as a slap on the wrist for not filing his taxes all those years.

Apparently, half the traffic cameras in DC aren’t working, and as such, the city’s losing a boatload of revenue for the broken gear. Why all the issues? Well, they’re switching management companies for the traffic cameras. The new people to run the lights will be the same people that have fucked up the parking meters so badly. Sweet! Way to go, DC!

Virginia’s releasing a fotonovela about statutory rape called “Gracias Papi” or….wait for it… “Thanks Dad.” Something is definitely lost in translation, I think…

    Regarding the traffic camera story: according to the linked article, the OLD agency was ACS – Affiliated Computer Systems, the ones handling the parking meters. The new agency is ATS – America Traffic Solutions. So hopefully the system will get better.
