Government funded pornography

Yes, the porn industry doesn’t see why the US Congress should treat it any differently from banks or automobiles. They believe that porn is more important to America than cars are and that they shoud get a a good $5 billion government bail-out. I am not making this up …doubters may read the newsreport.

Lawyers lawyers

This is what I do when I have a tough essay to write on a tight deadline. Here’s what emerged after the last half hour’s wandering around the internet:

“Lawyers should never marry other lawyers. This is called inbreeding, from which comes idiot children and more lawyers.” – from Adam’s Rib 

“Of course I’ve got lawyers. They are like nuclear weapons: I’ve got em coz everyone else has. But as soon as you use them they screw everything up.” -from Other People’s Money

“Lawyers are the only persons in whom ignorance of the law is not punished”- Jeremy Bentham

To some lawyers all facts are created equal” Felix Frankfurter

“I get paid for seeing that my clients have every break the law allows. I have knowingly defended a number of guilty men. But the guilty never escape unscathed. My fees are sufficient punishment for anyone” – F. Lee Bailey

Jurisdiction that covers the Gods and the Animals

It is a pity that nobody has written a cheeky guide to the Indian Judiciary. Given that the building and breaking of bridges by the Gods is a question of fact dscussed in the Supreme Court of India, and that a dog has been ordered to appear before a magistrate, I think a cheeky guide is more than due.
