Microsoft can't talk about Live's status

Sometimes, news is just dumb. You can try to spice it up or cover it in jam, but it won't change anything. It'll just make the news all sticky. Take, for example, Major Nelson's recent revelation that Microsoft can't talk about Xbox Live's status thanks to a lawsuit currently pending in Texas. You know what that is? Dumb.

We're not even sure who the dumb party is, the legal system for gagging Microsoft, or Microsoft for not just buying Texas and settling this old school. Boy, first The Alamo and now this. Will Texas ever stop letting us down?
