P.S.

Not guilty?!!!? (Casey Anthony)

What's up with that?

D-

I actually want to vomit as I read several articles today on the financial windfall Casey stands to reap. Book deals. GMA. Magazines. A movie deal. And they say crime doesn't pay???????

I remember the 'au pair' from a few years ago - the jury found her guilty, but the judge turned around and 'nullified' their decision - she was acquitted, time served (like Casey).

Then, there's Loreena Bobbitt, who went a little 'bobbitt-happy' in the '90's - she was acquitted - time served.

I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that it's impossible to find a woman guilty in High Profile cases, though.

(Locally, there've been enough women convicted of either child-torture or baby-murder to fill a good-sized rogue's gallery.)

Duncan,

Hi. Lots of doodoo, but funny doodoo. I'm dedicating this manifesto (for some reason I always think of the UnaBomber when I hear the word maifesto) to all of those with 250,000 and up Twitter followers, 2,500 Facebook friends and 5,000 connections on LinkedIn. And also to those who have 20 web-based businesses all at the same time just to cover all of the bases.

I think of many of the Internet douchebags as the new high-school snobs, sort of the jock and cheerleader table in the lunchroom where you had to have a blue-blooded pedigree (i.e being adept at catching a ball of shaking pom-poms) to sit.

I haven't forgotten the big-shot Twitter 'guru' who had 125,000+ followers & only followed 43 back. Did he follow the Dali Lama, or the Pope? No - Snooki!

Hi Rivkah.

Mr.'Bag' forgot to use his real name?

He has some points, and lots of doodoo. I might add that in the High Middle Ages, knights were royalty - they were (by the standards of feudalism) above the peasant-workers & lowly oafs. Knights either inherited their title, or won it by fighting. All the peasant farmers had to do was toil all day in order to feed the entire community - for this, their reward was that they were 'allowed' to live (prof. Eugen Weber, in the 52 part series "The Western Tradition").
