The D.C. Circuit today criticized the FBI for failing to use Google in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which requires government agencies to release information unless "reasonable efforts" show that the information is not available to the public.

"Why, in short, doesn’t the FBI just Google the two names? Surely, in the Internet age, a “reasonable alternative” for finding out whether a prominent person is dead is to use Google (or any other search engine) to find a report of that person’s death."

But as Howard Bashman notes, there's no word yet on whether the FBI has to learn to use Wikipedia.

The Gearwhore mentioned this at mrotakki's party the other night, and it was too amusing not to post:

"One does not simply ROCK into Mordor..."

But at least you "shall have my axe!"

Now if we could just get Dragon Force to do the soundtrack...

The guy with the sign should learn to spell "morons" correctly, though.

The world would be so much less amusing without brain-dead idiots.

Just so long as they don't get elected to public office...
