I got a call from someone trying to steal money with some kind of travel deal scam yesterday.

It started with a 'bot pretending to be a guy named "Tim". I told "Tim" that I'm over 28 and have a credit card.

I got to a real human and kept the guy going for almost 10 minutes.

He wised up when I told him that I always take my Nile monitor therapy lizard with me while traveling, and that any hotel or resort where we stay has to maintain a supply of fresh crocodile eggs for my lizard.

Maryland scraps gun "fingerprint" database after 15 failed years

Millions of dollars later, Maryland has officially decided that its 15-year effort to store and catalog the "fingerprints" of thousands of handguns was a failure.

Since 2000, the state required that gun manufacturers fire every handgun to be sold here and send the spent bullet casing to authorities. The idea was to build a database of "ballistic fingerprints" to help solve future crimes.

But the system — plagued by technological problems — never solved a single case. Now the hundreds of thousands of accumulated casings could be sold for scrap.

"Obviously, I'm disappointed," said former Gov. Parris N. Glendening, a Democrat whose administration pushed for the database to fulfill a campaign promise. "It's a little unfortunate, in that logic and common sense suggest that it would be a good crime-fighting tool."...

I have purchased three new handguns in California during the last 15 years. Each one included a fired cartridge case in a small sealed brown paper envelope, provided by the manufacturer in case the weapon ended up getting sold new in Maryland. A classic case of a solution looking for a problem, and a failure of "common sense." The article notes that most guns used in crimes are about 15 years old, and have often been stolen and sold illegally.

Barbara LeSavoy says "Obama’s legacy on guns should be to ban them"

I urge President Obama to ban firearm possession in America. He is the president of the United States. He can change the country. He can do it today. I believe in him.

I voted for Barack Obama. Twice. During his 2008 presidential campaign, my two daughters, partner, and I ate every meal in our house on Obama placemats. We bought these at our local supermarket, plastic-coated, plate-sized paper rectangles with an image of his face framed by colors of the flag. While politically minded, I am not overly patriotic, so this mealtime ritual of American allegiance was odd for me. Still, we looked at the image of his face each day and we believed that he really could be the change in America.

As Obama’s 2012 campaign approached, I was a little jaded. Some of his promises to our country did not come true, and I was anxious about rising social tensions he and his administration faced. Racial inequality plagued the news, gender-based violence grew in global proportion, and women’s reproductive freedoms had become increasingly vulnerable.

Still, I did not waver. I dug into our old dining room cupboards, and found our worn but resilient Obama placements. I dusted them off, and once again, my family and I ate all of our meals looking at his image. In his presidency, we still imagined a country on the edge of change....

But every day we are told that nobody wants to take peoples' guns away.

Perceptions Haven’t Caught Up to Decline in Crime

Here’s a narrative you rarely hear: Our lives are safer. This message is so rarely heard that half of all respondents to a recent YouGov poll suggested that the violent crime rate had risen over the past two decades. The reality, of course, is that it has fallen enormously.

The decline in violent crime is one of the most striking trends over recent decades; the rate has declined roughly by half since 1993.

To be precise, the F.B.I.'s count of violent crimes reported to law enforcement has declined from a rate of 747 violent incidents per 100,000 people in 1993 to 387 incidents per 100,000 people in 2012, which is the most recent year for which it has published complete data. This reflects the fact that over this period, the homicide rate has fallen by 51 percent; forcible rapes have declined by 35 percent; robberies have decreased by 56 percent; and the rate of aggravated assault has been cut by 45 percent. Property crime rates are also sharply down....

Every day we are bombarded by news about crimes that rightfully shock people. But promoting the perception that crime is on the rise serves the financial interests of the media. Truth has become a casualty of the war for attention.
