Dutchman - - I do not think you grasp what a City Housing Project signifies. It is almost always low-income housing, regardless of what state or city it is in. More often than not, if the place is two decades old or so, the apartment area can be rough and scary at night. I doubt very much that you would like living there.
BadReligionPR - - Senators Coleman and Durbin both have questioned the RIAA abouts its tactics. Basically, they are just trying to sweet-talk the RIAA to tone down its attacks on the public, less the public in its anger vote all out-of-office. The sweet-talk is meaningless, as it won't be there next year after the elections. The fact remains that Congress granted the RIAA exceptional powers to bypass normal Court procedures for obtaining subpoeanas, to get these subpoeanas in-mass (hundreds at a time) with little or no evidence, and to impose outlandish penalties on the public. Even the FBI can not get subpoeanas as easy as the RIAA does. . . (Both Verizon and Pacific Bell have complained to the Courts that the RIAA's actions are illegal. But, US Supreme Court never gets involved until the issue is long dead). . . [.The RIAA went after a Florida Professor and his students, taking them to Court, only to find out that they had done no wrong at all. The RIAA simply said SORRY then and paid them no damages for harrassment. . .But the 12-year old girl was not allowed to simply say SORRY to the RIAA. . . So we have dual standards granted by Congress.]. . . In 1998-9, to approve the law used by the RIAA, Congress did a simple VOICE roll-call "Yes-or-No", with no record kept of who voted Yes, so that the public could not blame any particular Congressional member. It is unknown how much money the RIAA gave to the Democratic & Republican parties in return, but I bet it was substantial (and secret).
