Justice Antonin Scalia is a broken man . . . thanks to the oh so conscientious cleaning crew at my office.

Death of Scalia

It has yet to be seen whether all the kings horses and all the kings men can put the Justice together again.

Jeremy gave this to me as a graduation present and St. Scalia’s little bobbling head has looked down on me through many long nights and tortured claim constructions. They will pay, they will pay!!!

Muslim Television Channel Founder Charged With Beheading His Wife.

The estranged wife of a Muslim television executive feared for her life after filing for divorce last month from her abusive husband, her attorney said — and was then found beheaded Thursday in his upstate New York television studio.

Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37, was found dead on Thursday at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, N.Y., near Buffalo. Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, has been charged with second-degree murder.

. . .

Muzzammil Hassan, who founded Bridges TV in November 2004 to counter anti-Islam stereotypes, surrendered to police Thursday. Hassan touted the network as the “first-ever full-time home for American Muslims,” according to a press release.

“Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a ‘Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'” Hassan said in the 2004 release. “But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell.”

Harley Davidson today announced that it will begin production on a more environmentally friendly motorcycle.  


Citing Harley’s already impressive mileage figures, a spokesman for the American icon said that Harley felt they could “make the most impact by using renewable resources in the construction of the motorcycle itself.”

The spokesman went on to describe the bike as a fusion of San Francisco sensibilities with Alabama know how.

Asked about the inspiration for the design, the spokesman said, “Well, we had some old pallets lying around, and one of the boys says, ‘Hey, wood comes from the environment.'”
