Keep Your Eye on the Sparrow

Miss him, miss him, miss him – Phil Spector has been convicted of murder, specifically of shooting Lana Clarkson in the mouth thus accruing a second degree murder rap. For the interested, this joins the ranks of bizarre, sleezy noir LA murder trials alongside OJ Simpson and (moreover) the sheer fucking wierdness of the Robert Blake Trial.

Yesterday I reported that Amazon was trying very hard to pretend we TBLG people don’t exist – well now they’re saying That was a technical glitch. Yes really. Actually, at first they blamed a troll on the internet (when the first reaction is to blame someone else…..) but now they’re saying it was “purely an internal error”. Hmmmmmmmm.

Goldman Sachs promises to repay rescue money suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure. This as they posted 1.66 billion dollars in net profit during Q1. Hey, if you’re still turning billions of dollars in profits – you don’t need government assistance. (It received 10 billion last year.) “Profits are down” does not an economic catastrophe make.

Judges in Minnesota declare Franken winner in Senate race. You know, long ago and far away I would have just shot both of them in the head and put a third party candidate in there. Of course, had I awesome judiciary powers, I might well have not waited for the long and drawn out outcome, declared the state of Minnesota contaminated on the grounds that Michele Bachmann exists there and throw a Simpsons dome around the whole works.
(Nothing personal against Minnesota – okay, that’s not true. I can name precisely three good things that came out of Minnesota that didn’t turn sour. A friend of mine named Bonnie, the Replacements, and That’s it. Everything else spoils eventually.)

In another move displaying the type of innovation I’ve come to expect from the Obama White House, The Justice Department hires it’s fifth ex-RIAA lawyer, proving that yes Virginia, law can continue to be rooted in the 20th century and that a scarcity based economy is always the way to go.
