Random moment of anarchy: you snooze you lose!


  Comic from xkcd.  Click to enlarge.

Via Wendy McElroy, this bit of amusement:

A man who opposes police use of cameras to send speeding tickets snatched a bully pulpit when the Bluff City Police Department allowed its website to expire. Computer network designer Brian McCrary of Gray discovered the police site was up for grabs, so he paid domain provider Go Daddy for the rights and is the proud new owner of http://www.bluffcitypd.com. McCrary, who told the Bristol Herald Courier he received a $90 speeding citation, took over the site May 22. The parody site McCrary put up shows a smiling cartoon police badge clutching green currency. It also posts gripes from other people who've been cited. Bluff City Police Chief David Nelson said the officer who managed the site had been on medical leave and the expiration slipped up on the department.

Outstanding.  It's good to see a few nascent George Haydukes popping up every now and then.

I'm sure it won't last long.  Master doesn't take kindly to being upstaged by the peasantry, and we all know that the state can do anything to anyone that it wants to.

Bring popcorn.  Show's not over yet.
