"The American Civil Liberties Union on Thursday warned of the prospect of “routine aerial surveillance of American life” and called for new regulations to govern the use of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, over American skies.

The 16-page report suggests that if unchecked, the use of drones by law enforcement agencies could become commonplace, and that they could be used to monitor the movements of ordinary citizens without a court warrant and perhaps even be deployed to spray tear gas on protesters."--By SOMINI SENGUPTA, NY Times

"U.S. law enforcement is greatly expanding its use of domestic drones for surveillance. Routine aerial surveillance would profoundly change the character of public life in America. "--by ACLU

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.
