Fallacy in Justice

  Paying a debt to society There is a concept that I heard all of my life in relation to people in of after prison. The phase “paying their debt to society” or “paid their debt to society” are bantered about. To this is a crock, that debt is much like poorly managed credit card…

Let’s get active again

So my mind is showing signs of life. I need to write in order to kick my work brain into off work brain for my sanity. What kinds of topics do you WANT to see posted? I will of course toss out stuff that I find interesting for therapeutic reasons, but I want to know…

Ashley Madison – really?

Since the media is saturated, why not add my two cents worth? As a cyber security professional I may view things a little differently. So we have a site (others as well) that caters to cheating.

Does “Love You Like A Love Song Baby” contain plagiarized bits?

So while I was listening to Pandora, I had a Selena Gomez song drop into the mix… I figured that I would give it a listen.   Am I the only one that thinks that Selena Gomez’s Love You Like A Love Song Baby (written by Antonina Armato and Tim James) rips off Supertramp’s Logical…

So KATU stopped accepting comments…
