Two Videos, re L'affaire L'crosse

Here are two videos, presumably worth 2,000 words or more.

First, the Potbangers II bit, where the mob confronts Peter Lange. Now, I consider Peter a good friend, so I may be biased, but he did okay under the circumstances. His statement here, facing an angry mob alone, is as fair and proper as it could possibly have been.

We don't know the facts
We don't know what happened
Let the legal process take its course

Would you have been able to do this? I don't think I would have done as well. I do think I look better in a baseball hat, though. Probably just a matter of taste on that last.

Video #2: the single best thing, as I have said before, to be done on the entire scandal. The SNL send-up of that remarkable bully, Nancy Grace. (Nancy Grace didn't even show up for the segment where HEADLINE NEWS broke the story that Nancy Grace had been completely wrong all along; imagine that).

Remember, this SNL show was aired in DECEMBER. That's a while ago. Pretty ballsy.

Smashing, Just Smashing

A smashing bit from the good Dr. Nokes, at UnLocked Wordhoard.

Originally from Anachronista, but I'm no link pirate. I found it first
from Nokes

Can you imagine learning about the B.T. from this source? There even appears to be someone puking from sea-sickness, though I may have that wrong. (No, I watched it again. Definitely puking!). Kids would love this. Incredibly educational.


That Won't Fly....

This from Andrew Sullivan, in the At Monthly:

Enemy of the People
08 Apr 2007 05:57 pm

Meet Professor Walter F. Murphy, emeritus of Princeton University. He's a former Marine, with five years of active service and 19 years in the reserve, and a legal critic of Roe vs Wade and supporter of the Alito confirmation. He's also on the Terrorist No-Fly List:

"I presented my credentials from the Marine Corps to a very polite clerk for American Airlines. One of the two people to whom I talked asked a question and offered a frightening comment: "Have you been in any peace marches? We ban a lot of people from flying because of that." I explained that I had not so marched but had, in September, 2006, given a lecture at Princeton, televised and put on the Web, highly critical of George Bush for his many violations of the Constitution. "That'll do it," the man said."

Just a heads up about what these people are up to.

(Nod to JT. I hope they let him fly to Chicago. He is a dangerous man....)
