Wall Street Journal article on federal crimes. There were exactly three when the Constitution was written. We’re up to 3,000 n0w and, when you add in all the criminal penalties affixed to federal regulations, no one seems capable of counting them. Certainly over 10,000, and you could find yourself serving a decade or so in prison for something you had no idea was illegal. Gotta love big government.

It looks as though we’re really going to go to full default. I didn’t believe our Congress was this crazy but by God, it sure seems that it is. Interesting times.
JP Morgan banker steals $1.2 million, gets two year jail sentence. Heck, with good behavior (and aren’t all bankers well behaved? ) he’ll be out in less than 18 months. That’s pretty good pay.
Old Greenwich’s Joe Dowling is competing in a triathlon at age 72. In a wheelchair, just to make it a bit more difficult. If you don’t know Joe, you’re missing a treat. A great guy.
Ohio man convicted after eleven bodies found buried in his backyard. Local sausage factory, originally blamed for foul odor, is acquitted.
Peter Madoff’s Aston Martin estimated to sell for $200 -$250,000. Marissa Noel is rumored ro have first dibs but Walt is also in the running.
Banana fungus threatens the fruit. Maybe this will help the Caribbean countries, who recently lost trade protection for their own product. As I understand it, their bananas are smaller, but so what?
Norway? Firggin’ Norway? These are very sick people indeed. Didn’t we have a neutron bomb worked up once? Time to revive it.
UPDATE: initial stories had Muslim terrorists claiming credit for this atrocity but that’s apparently not true. So shelve the neutron bomb, but keep it handy.
Afghans stealing $10 million a day from us. I know exactly one Afghan, a former Riverside resident and a wonderful man who has repeatedly risked his life for his country. His loyalty has been betrayed and it sickens me that we are seeing American kids killed and crippled to support these crooks. Let’s get the hell out of there and let them go at it.
(Oh let’s bump this up, just for fun)
Nominating Peter von Braun to the Board of Education? I suppose there could be another fellow with that same name but the one I know is a Belle Haven resident, courtesy of his father’s wealth, with a propensity to wear a fake family crest on his blazer’s tit. A complete phony and someone I wouldn’t trust to educate my dog. Just one man’s opinion, of course, although if Casey the Wonder Dog were still alive, he’d sic him.
Instapundit thinks they’ll become finishing schools for girls. I would advise my own son, today, to skip college. Completely anti-male, run by zealots and teaching nothing. In fact, I regret sending my daughters to college too. This country is going to hell, and in a real hurry. We will regret this.
Gays will be allowed to serve their country. Seems right to me – I admire anyone willing to risk his (or her) life to protect the United States and my freedom.
Chinese developers release scorpions into tenants’ apartments. I used to pride myself on how quickly I could move an eviction case through Housing Court but if everyone is going to use this technique ….
