Trouble with customer service - Billy Corriher

Go Martha, go Martha, go Martha - Bob Paslay

If I were one of the federal jurors in the Martha Stewart case, immediately after finding her not guilty I would go to the other end of the courthouse and file a civil suit against the government for wasting weeks of my life.

Taking a bite of the Big Apple - Kathy Jefcoats

I love New York City. I know people say that but I absolutely love Manhattan and would move up there, well, in a New York minute if I had lots of money, and a job and place to live there. Since I have none of those, I have only the memories of visiting there two years ago. Oh, I also have photos, lots of photos but my memories are what I can bring to mind during a lull in courtroom proceedings or while I am waiting for a phone call to be returned.

A short history of heliography - Zach Porter

In 1826 Nicephore Niepce produced the oldest known example of an image recorded onto a light sensitive surface in France with a material called asphaltum. In 1839 Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre perfected a photographic process using silver halide coated copper plates, fumed over iodine crystals, exposed for several minutes in a clunky camera and then processed out using a hot mercury bath. It sounds real easy, yes, but certainly not as easy as using your new camera phone that fits inside the hip pocket. You photo enthusiasts, you passive dabblers who fancy yourselves virtuosos, you've got it made. Taking just one photo used to be an all-day ordeal for our beloved pioneers of what Sir John Herschel dubbed photography (or heliography if you prefer the Greek root).
