Mike Davidson

It doesn’t matter to me where your political hat falls, this is hilarious. Tech Crunch reported yesterday that John McCains Myspace Profile was allegedly “enhanced” courtesy of Newsvine CEO, Mike Davidson. Apparently Mr. Davidson had given away a profile template for myspace and the McCain camp decided to use it. The mCain crew was also Hot Linking the images off Davidsons server and killing his bandwith. One of the stipulations was that the profile would give a nod to the designer, something the McCain Camp neglected today and as a result the page was “enhanced”.

Violence, political criticism, budget cuts, impeachment, and legislation designed to constrain the judiciary are some of the threats that have existed for judges since the formation of the United States. Recently, several leaders in the legal community have voiced concerns that judicial independence is in jeopardy because these threats could influence judges to make biased decisions. The chorus, led in part by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, is pointing out problems that are non-issues, suggested Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit at the Ola B. Smith Lecture March 19. Thanks to Americans’ recognition of the importance of an independent judiciary, now and throughout history, judicial independence is safe, he said. Pryor’s talk was sponsored by the Student Legal Forum and the Virginia Law Review.
