      WWII pigeon message stumps GCHQ decoders
      By Gordon Corera
      Security correspondent,
      BBC News
      Britain’s top code-breakers say they are stumped by a secret code found on the leg of a dead pigeon.

      The remains of the bird were found in a chimney in Surrey with a message from World War II attached.

      Experts at the intelligence agency GCHQ have been struggling to decipher the message since they were provided with it a few weeks ago.

      They say it may be impossible to decode it without more information – some of which could come from the public.

      The message was discovered by David Martin when he was renovating the chimney of his house in Surrey.

      Among the rubbish, he found parts of a dead pigeon including a leg. Attached to the leg was a red canister. Inside the canister was a thin piece of paper with the words “Pigeon Service” at the top and 27 handwritten blocks of code.

      This was given to GCHQ at the start of the month.

      “We didn’t really hold out any hopes we would be able to read the message because the sort of codes that were constructed to be used during operations were designed only to be able to be read by the senders and the recipients,” said GCHQ historian Tony, who asked that only his first name be used.

    report about an

    that was planned for Jeffersonville?

    We do need to be able to post pictures again.
    The underwear run is a great example of the need.

      Cupid’s Undie Run
      By John McDevitt

      PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s not everyday you see 400 men and women running around outdoors in their underwear, but that’s exactly what happened Saturday in Philadelphia. Philly is one of several cities in the country that held Cupid Undie Runs benefiting a children’s charity.

      Some dared to bare more than others.

      More than $50,000 was raised in Philadelphia for the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
      Sixteen other cities also held runs.
      The nationwide fundraiser brought in more than $1-million.

    Has anyone else had this issue? I have tried several times to log in but I can’t. Do I need to re-register, change my password, or just wait for Google to do whatever it is they need to do?

    “Critics argue that the “court cash bonds” are misleading
    since defendants are never held accountable
    for the full amount of the bond.”

    Is the “court cash bond” system
    a huge failure in Clark County?
    Time for a change?

    RELEASED ON BOND: A flawed system?

    Defendants not held liable forfailure to appear

    By MATT THACKER

    In recent years, court cash bonds have become more popular and are now used frequently in Clark County. Under that system, a defendant pays a 10 percent deposit of the amount of bail. Critics argue that the court cash bonds are misleading since defendants are never held accountable for the full amount of the bond.

    Tony Widgery, president of the Indiana Surety Bail Agents Association, says that some counties require anyone posting bond to sign papers that holds them liable for the full amount of the bond. Clark County does not.

    “As with a car loan or anything else, collecting a judgment can be like squeezing blood out of a turnip,” said Deborah Neal, staff counsel for the Indiana Public Defender Commission.

    Widgery said the only county that he knows of that has attempted to go after the remaining 90 percent is Marion County.

    “Marion County failed due to insolvent signers and defendants,” Widgery said. “Because there are no requirements or qualifications to sign on a bond, it is not a true bail bond.”

    Wigdery points to the Indiana Constitution which states, “Offenses, other than murder or treason, shall be bailable by sufficient sureties.”

    Since the 10 percent deposit does not require sufficient sureties, he argues, “I feel it is unconstitutional. In addition, because there is no one held accountable, there is no incentive for the defendant to go to court.

    Hmmm….It seems that Southern Belle has hit on something here…..
    Perhaps, someone should ask the sharp GSL
    to make discrete inquiries
    in the coming weeks.
