Soccer: the Nazi sport

Charlotte Observer | 11/07/2006 | Pregame Hitler speech stirs fury

So, some guy thought it would be a good idea to play a speech by Hitler at a soccer playoff game. Yet another reason to hate soccer. (Via Deadspin.)

Well, this is stupid

Dueling measures to share ballot – Tuscaloosa

Here is Local Amendment Two on the Tuscaloosa County ballot I just voted on:

Relating to Tuscaloosa County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to authorize the Legislature, by local or general act, to fix, regulate, and alter the costs and charges of court and to ratify and confirm any local law authorizing any additional court costs enacted prior to the adoption of this amendment. (Proposed by Act 2006-313)

And here is Amendment Three on the Tuscaloosa County ballot:

Relating to Tuscaloosa County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to authorize the Legislature, by local or general act, to fix, regulate, and alter the costs and charges of court and to ratify and confirm any local law authorizing any additional court costs enacted prior to the adoption of this amendment. (Proposed by Act 2006-514)


Notice anything… unusual about these? Like that they are letter for letter identical? Someone at the state legislature — and I know this is hard to believe — screwed up and didn’t properly combine the House and Senate versions of the
same bill.

What’s more, if these two pass, they both go in the state constitution, right next to the wool farming advertising law.
