[12:42:02] matt []/Psi+ I am a little amazed that a package can arrive in Alaska one afternoon and be delivered in the middle of Massachusetts a day later. The most amazing part is that it was scanned at 06:08 in Boston, but sent back on a truck at 06:34 towards the local depot, and made it onto the delivery truck at 07:43. After dealing with both FedEx and UPS being unable to tell me whether a package is on or not on a truck, that level of coördination is astounding.

Also an important point from that article:
ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero said the legal exception applies only when there is a continued threat to public safety and is ‘‘not an open-ended exception’’ to the Miranda rule, which guarantees the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney.

The federal public defender’s office in Massachusetts said it has agreed to represent Tsarnaev once he is charged. Miriam Conrad, public defender for Massachusetts, said he should have a lawyer appointed as soon as possible because there are ‘‘serious issues regarding possible interrogation.’’
