Bitch, bitch, bitch

I hate movies that don't know when they're over, most recently Deadgirl, terrific movie if you like sick and wrong. It has tons of loose ends, zombies running around as well as many dead or missing kids from one high school, which is fine and actually would be good sequel bait but instead it opts for a too pat ending with no resolution. Would a zombie have rights? I doubt if you could call them legally dead since they clearly have some limited brain activity. Are they mentally ill rather than murderers? Most zombie movies are end of the world scenarios but what if there were just a few that could be safely restrained?
Just to throw this in "3:10 To Yuma" above average western until the last 10 minutes when it turns into the worst buddy movie ever made.
Today's weird but true.
The perfect crime scene. The US Constitution specifies that a jury must be selected from the state in which the crime was committed as well as the federal district. This has never been a problem because state boundaries almost perfectly line up with districts. An exception is the part of Yellowstone Park in Idaho because the entire park lies in the Wyoming district. This area has no population and hence no one available to serve as a juror.
