Sunday Night TV and Open Thread
The season finale of Pacific, Survivor, and Desperate Housewives all air tonight, while Celebrity Apprentice gets down to the final two. As if that's not enough, there's a new Breaking Bad and Brothers and Sisters.
What are you watching?
Here's an interesting op-ed from 2000 on why we need to maintain Miranda by former prosecutor and author Scott Turow. I like this part:
Catching bad guys is important, but it is not the only thing this society values; we also care about certain minimal standards of decency in the government's treatment of citizens and limits on the authority of the state.
The requirement to recite Miranda is an important reminder to the police that the war on lawlessness is always subject to the guidance of the law.
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
