Are you playing a GAME with me, sir?

In the course of digging up Bree’s court files I found all kinds of weird crap, including a lawsuit where the defendant was a painting and other delights. The one that really got me, though, was the Order Denying MAAF’s motion to preclude the French phrase “Quel jeu doit-on jouer vis-a-vis des autorit├ęs de Californie?” as used in Mr. Simonet’s notes from being translated as “What game must we play with the California authorities?”

The whole thing, which is only five pages and a delight ,is here on my server in .PDF form.

This judge has entirely too much fun.

Courtesy my brother, a piece of cop prose

“Detectives alertly moved in on that vehicle and that male tried to ram that vehicle, two other vehicles on that scene. He subsequently exits the vehicle and as he’s running away detectives can clearly see this male is attempting to pull a gun out of his back pocket. At some point in time he is chased around the corner and two detectives discharged their weapons.”

Peppermint Patty Died For Your Sins

Go ahead and celebrate St. Patrick’s day. Even if you’re not in any way Irish. Even if you don’t understand a thing about the politics of the celebration and its slogans and songs. Have corned beef and Guinness and try not to drive drunk, it’s all good. Hell, the Japanese seem to enjoy Christmas, too. Holidays are fun.

But if you call it or spell it “St. Patty’s Day” I’m going to come over to your house and beat you about the head and neck with “The Copy Editor’s Shillelagh”, otherwise known as a 1913 Webster’s English Dictionary with cast iron covers and spikes, on the end of a chain.
