Tony Stark and Jack Donaghy ignore speeding cameras

- Arizona was the first state to install speeding cameras.  Arizona now leads the nation in speeding camera installations and Arizona has gone state-wide with its speeding cameras.  However, those cameras may get removed after November.  A ballot initiative will allow voters to get rid of the cameras.  I say good riddance!  Anyone who claims these cameras are more for public safety than to generate government revenue is a damn fool!  Speeding cameras = taxes.  It's the exact same principle:



- My favorite TV show 30 Rock, got picked up for another season, despite its horrendous ratings.  Shows like 30 Rock get renewed not for their overall ratings, but for the audiences they reach, and 30 Rock's core audience is a  gold mine for high-brow products:



- The second trailer for Iron Man has hit the net.  Here is a link.  Slightly better than the first trailer.  I still don't know what to make of this movie.  Trying to keep my expectations low:

Ditch the cameras! Many drivers speed up between the cameras and nail their brakes just before them - not so safe for the rest of the drivers on the road.

Cameras = taxes? Not a fan of the cameras, but I disagree with that. Taxes are mandatory, and a crime against humanity. Speeding cameras are just a crime against humanity. I'd rather have revenue generated by another person's voluntary actions than the Obama way. Have there been safety studies pre and post camera? It seems to me there have been, that I heard about them, but I can't recall...

Community Season 2! Booyah! I also think NBC has a stake in 30 Rock, so it'll always get preferential treatment. That's how Scrubs got two seasons on ABC. Hmmm...that article says 30 Rock is one of NBC's highest rated shows. That can't be right, can it?

Do you watch Archer? God, that show slays me.

Iron Man 2 trailer? I'm full of juicy Tron Legacy trailer right now, thank you very much.

One of my friends already told me about this place and I do not regret that I found this article.
