The Curious Case of the 840 pound Brazilian Emerald

Kinda big for a pinky ring, tho.

Hawaii Gun Laws

Gotta love the Armed Citizen

Mrs. Basinski panned a bad act, or rather, a bad actor:
ELYRIA, Ohio (AP)...70-year-old Ellen Basinski...used her favorite pan to fight...intruders at her home west of Cleveland on Tuesday...

Basinski was on the phone with her husband when the teens pushed their way into her home.

...(S)he grabbed the 5-quart saucepan and hit one teen, who was going through her purse.

The four were arrested.
Kinda warms the cockles of your heart. Right along with your chili and rice.

WARNING: In formerly great Britain, it would now be Mrs. Basinski who was arrested, for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Oh, yes: And possibly for possession of a non-metric sauce pan.

Details are for the Little People.

Taxes and business registrations, too,

At least, if you work for the One.

Ultimately, it would be for the good of the children.

Tho not of the children the voters elect.

Fact Checked to da Max

The Good Ol'New York Times. The newspaper of record, by the way, now has a market cap roughly equal to the value of its real estate. Less the mortgage, of course...

One might wonder why. Or not.

Of course, they don't bother with the actual facts on other issues, so why here?

News You Can Use

Socks: RIP

Socks has gone to that Big Catnip Patch in the Sky. Betty Currie is reported to have staffed for him after he was abandoned to his fate by the Clintons. At least they didn't have him offed like a dog I could name but won't.

Wonkette has the sad news.
