Contained to the bilge so no problem, but it did remind me of a friend at the Riverside Yacht Club , now deceased, who stuck the diesel nozzle into a fishing rod holder and set the trigger. I’m just not mean enough to mention his name, but he had to have had 100 gallons swirling around before he returned to his boat. Hee hee hee.

DSK “victim” sues the NY Post for libel. I did enjoy this case but, sort of like that Florida murder, I’m not a TV junkie (okay, I don’t watch TV at all) so it’s the legal machinations that catch my interest. I’m now following the Florida case because the discussion has turned to whether it was a brilliant defense or incompetent prosecution that got her off. Knowing nothing about the case, I’d still go with incompetent prosecution. The odds are with me.
UPDATE: As I’ve confessed here before, no one ever accused me of being a gifted lawyer and I’d be the last person you’d want to hire for an appellate matter, but I did have fair success presenting trials to juries – the idea is, or was to me, to tell a simple, compelling story that folks could follow. It usually worked.
FrontPoint (sounds like a flea spray), once across from Town Hall, is pretty much kaput (a spokesman says it’s “moving forward”). I wondered why an email I sent to a fellow who worked there last January was never responded to.
Well yes, he’s a Democrat, but still …. My guess is that he was vacationing in France.
So say these authors (from Yale, no less!) I’ll confess to being dumb as brick, but what I sense about all this nonsense is that it’s simply a wealth redistribution scam – check out Australia, where 30% of taxpayers will pay 100% of a new-fangled “carbon tax”. It’s about governmental control and grabbing money and has nothing whatsoever to do with saving the planet because, really, do you actually think China and India are going to shut down their economies to save the planet? Didn’t think so.
If you have the time on this quasi-holiday week, good (but lengthy) article on the CIA team that finally found Bin Laden
From the Associated Press. Taking nothing whatsoever from the Navy SEALS who risked their lives nailing the bastard, this is the story of the man who tracked Bin Laden from 9/11 and finally found him.
Former baseball player Roger Clemens’ steroid trial starts today. Why are we wasting taxpayers’ money on this? Does anyone care about the old guy? Could our lives possibly be affected by the outcome, either way?
