It’s time for the judge to pass sentence. Andrew will go to federal prison for 41 months. After that, there will be three years of supervised release. There’s a fine, too – $73,000 restitution to be paid to AT&T.
Afterwards, Andrew’s friends point out that on this same day two teenage football stars convicted of drugging and raping a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio – videotaping her and urinating on her – are receiving sentences of one and two years.
Action film star Steven Seagal, who racks up big body counts in his on-screen battles with bad guys, took on a new role on Saturday, training posse volunteers for controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio in how to use guns to protect schools in shooting incidents. Reuters
“Her boss found her too irresistible. He complained that if she saw his pants bulging, she was dressing inappropriately. He texted to ask how frequently she experienced orgasm. He said that, for a woman with a body like hers, not to have sex often was like having a Lamborghini in the garage and never driving it.
Then, after 10 years of employing her, he fired her. ”
“We can’t possibly kill everyone who wants to harm us,” a senior administration official said. “It’s a necessary part of what we do. .?.?. We’re not going to wind up in 10 years in a world of everybody holding hands and saying, ‘We love America.’ ”

“America is the most pro-human idea ever conceived.”
What a crazy crazy bastard.
A death row prisoner who has been medically diagnosed as “mentally retarded” and therefore exempt from execution is set to die on Tuesday in Texas, a state that rejects scientific consensus and instead applies its own definition of learning difficulties based on a character in a John Steinbeck novel.

I said yesterday that I didn’t see how I was agreeing with 17% of whatever crap Mitt Romney spouts. Well a file just turned up on reddit and someone found this:
Romney Charged Fee For Being Blind. “It now costs to be blind in Massachusetts. The state’s approximately35,000 blind and legally blind residents must now pay $10 annually for a certificate of blindness and $15 every four years for a blind identification card. Without the formerly free documents, blind people cannot take advantage of tax abatements, affordable housing programs, health care services, transportation discounts and other benefits. … The fees originated in February, in Gov. Mitt Romney’s budget proposal for fiscal 2004.” (Shaun Sutner,“Advocates Fight Fees For The Blind,” Telegram & Gazette , 8/5/03)
How in the name of any sort of decency to your fellow human can you tax someone in that way?
