It's a hobby horse, but I love to ride.  
The problem with eyewitness testimony.

Overheard on a stakeout:

Wonder Woman: I just watched Platypus take two tries to complete an Angry Birds level! Maybe we need to drive him to the Emergency Room--
Platypus: I told you, the algorithm is off!

I would totally download and listen to this... except I'd already planned to head outside to do a little raking to the sweet strains of On the Media.

But later.

I just heard a bit of that episode on the radio! Really disturbing in and of itself, and the law enforcement implications are even worse.

In fairness, we've known that for decades--cops and reporters both. Which is why we work like hell to get confessions.

Of course, confessions are subject to neurology, too.

(My jobs are not that different.)
