The government of Baltimore has been taken hostage by ransomware and may remain shut down for weeks

Nearly two weeks after the city of Baltimore's internal networks were compromised by the Samsam ransomware worm (previously), the city is still weeks away from recovering services -- that's weeks during which the city is unable to process utility payments or municipal fines, register house sales, or perform other basic functions of city governance. 911 and emergency services are OK, because after they were hit by a ransomware attack last year, they were hardened against future attacks. The ...

Lorez Alexandria: Sings Pres

Lorez Alexandria was a superb singer in the Sarah Vaughan tradition. Alexandria recorded more than 20 albums over a 36-year period starting in 1957. Why she isn't a household name today is beyond me. Perhaps it was the smaller labels she was on or her decision to cling to Chicago, a lesser media market, for much of her career. Or maybe one Sarah Vaughan was sufficient. There are no bad Alexandria albums. All have a hip, confident charm. One of my favorites is her second album, Lorez Sings Pres...

La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans

This past weekend I was in Boston for some cultcha and went to The Museum of Fine Arts. Among several paintings, pastels, and drawings of dancers by Edgar Degas, a bronze casting of his sculpture La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans caught my eye: This is Degas’s largest surviving sculpture and the only one he titled and exhibited. The original wax version, a portrait of a young Belgian dancer named Marie van Goethem, was shown at the 1881 Impressionist exhibition in Paris. The wax was tinted t...

Split Sixth Circuit panel finds statutory max sentence substantively unreasonable(!) for felon-in-possession with long criminal history

A helpful reader made sure I did not miss the interesting (unpublished!) ruling of a Sixth Circuit panel late last week in US v. Warren, No. 18-3141 (6th Cir. May 10, 2019) (available here). Here is how the majority opinion in Warren starts and ends: At Davian Warren’s sentencing hearing, both Warren and the government sought a 51-to-63-month sentence — a term that was recommended in Warren’s presentence report and that fell within the applicable Sentencing Guidelines range.  Instead, the distr...
