Confederate license plates, Cellphone snoops
Florida lawmakers are debating whether motorists should be allowed to have Confederate-flag license plates.
Florida lawmakers are debating whether motorists should be allowed to have Confederate-flag license plates. The proposed new plate would cost $25, with proceeds funding Civil War museums and the maintenance of Confederate soldiers’ graves. The controversial flag, seen by many as racially divisive, “is part of our history, whether we like it or not,” said Republican state Rep. Don Brown. “I appreciate the heritage and the good things that people feel about our past.”
A New York firm is marketing a new device that would let suspicious spouses or parents recover old text messages from cell phones. The $149 SIM card reader will even recover messages that have been deleted—an invaluable feature in the modern marriage climate, says Todd Morris, president of BrickHouse security. “About half of spouses find something bad on their partner’s phone,” said Morris. To avoid incriminating themselves, he said, adulterers and teens should remove the SIM card from their cells “and crush it or cut it up with a wire cutter.”
