This is an outrage

Seen here is the arrest of Pete Tucker, for the crime of reporting on government business. At the end you see another official assert that “you don’t have permission to record.” Shortly afterward the individual taking the video, Jim Epstein, was arrested himself. You can read his details of the whole thing here.

The suggestion that any government meeting open to the public cannot be recorded or photographed in a non-distruptive way is offensive an unacceptable. Thankfully some of the commission seems to agree.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
