Quote of the Century

February 21, 2008 at 8:24 pm (Justice, Quote of the day)

Causing the back of a boy’s head to be placed against the clothed chest of a 23-year-old counselor is qualitatively different from causing a 12-year-old boy to place his tongue or his penis in the family dog’s anus.

Karma

August 26, 2007 at 8:36 pm (Justice, Personal, Religion)

I severely injured a squirrel the other day while playing disc golf.  I think I hit the little fucker with my driver and broke his leg.  I decided at the time that he probably fell out of a tree, but in retrospect, the coincidence is just to much to accept.  I am now reconciling it by saying that it was the same injury my cat had a few years back, and he healed up just fine.  So old squirrely will recover 100% in my mind.

I ran over a squirrel 11 years ago, and most likely killed it.  At the time, I felt that I made amends by rocking out to”The Divided Sky” on my way to work at Napoli’s.  (I used to smoke a ton of pot)  But this time I am hoping that actually admitting to it, anonymously on a blog, will serve as the karmic balance I need.

I thought I knew

Where The Simpsons are from.  In “Behind the Laughter” (BABF19) the narrator ends by saying:

The Simpsons’ bitter past was forgotten, and now the future looks brighter than ever for this northern Kentucky family.

That was a few years ago, and I thought the issue was settled.  But the source I am citing says that it was

Replaced with “southern Missouri” on subsequent airings

I have never heard that.  But it’s ok, because everyone knows that The Simpsons are from Oregon.  If anyone bothers to dispute that, I’ll provide many a link as evidence.

Painters Beware

So some guy who stalked David Letterman escaped from prison.  La dee freaking da, right?  He’ll get caught and I’m sure Letterman and his son have bodyguards.  But what caught my eye in this article was why the guy was in jail in the first place:

Frank was arrested in March 2005 on allegations that he had devised a plan to kidnap Letterman’s son, lied to investigators and overcharged Letterman for painting work at his ranch.

Prosecutors later dropped a charge of solicitation to kidnap, in exchange for guilty pleas on three other charges, including felony theft and misdemeanor obstruction.

Frank was sentenced to 10 years in prison for overcharging the talk show host.

Can that possibly be right?  Ten years for overcharging on a paint job?  By those standards Paris Hilton should get the chair.
