Re: “Gallegos: No Death Penalty in Arcata Double Murder Case

So what then are those "potentially mitigating and aggravating factors" that include "Tree’s criminal history and the facts of the case at hand"? Just curious.

Re: “Name That Tune

First of all, my membership in ASCAP means little to me because I'm not a pop musician. While I agree that ASCAP has been known to discourage the playing of live music and punishes establishments for not complying with their rules, ASCAP (including BMI, Sam Fox and SEESAC), wouldn't be as omnipotent without cooperation from the government. So, the "evil" is spread out among three entities: well-to-do pop musicians, the government and organizations such as ASCAP. We can thank ASCAP's lobbyists and those politicians in bed with the entertainment industry for the current state of affairs that penalizes small businesses and limits performers. That said, this isn't a fair illustration of "capitalism in action." Lastly, realizing that ASCAP should develop a radically different attitude toward small venues in remote locations (like here), musicians and businesses need to stop wimping out and find creative ways to get around ASCAP.
