From cryptome, a satirical proposed design for the new Iraqi dinar. Hehe. Reduced to fit, click on the image for the full-size version (same jpg, but not reduced).

Click2Houston - Discipline Decided In Student Inhaler Incident - Brandon Kivi was expelled from Caney Creek High School for sharing his inhaler last week with his girlfriend. He does not intend to go back after Christmas when his expulsion expires. [muth]

Kivi said the ordeal taught him the lesson of a lifetime.

"If I had this to do again, I would do the right thing and ask the nurse before I do it, to keep out of trouble," Kivi said.

Ferguson was not disciplined over the incident.

Both Kivi and Ferguson decided to withdraw from Caney Creek High School to be home-schooled.

The families received calls of support from around the world after their story was made public.

ABC News - Supreme Court Clears Way for Medical Pot - the supreme court let stand an appeals court ruling forbidding the federal government from punishing doctors for recommending cannabis to their patients. [kaba]

Robert Kampia, head of the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington, said the court "has eliminated any doubt that states have the right to protect medical marijuana patients under state law, and that physicians have the right to give patients honest advice and recommendations, whether the federal government approves or not."


The case is Walters v. Conant, 03-40.

HotPaw Software makes a number of useful Palm handheld computer utilities, including HotPaw Basic (or yBasic, formerly cbasPad Pro). I'm converting a subset of my Muzzle Energy Computer to work on the Palm using HotPaw Basic as the engine. Makes it very easy. I expect to be done with the first version by the end of the weekend, maybe sooner.
