Other things that have happened

Darn... they already did the briefs joke about the lawyer who moonlights as a porn star.

A candidate for mayor of San Antonio asked his twin brother to take his place in a parade when he couldn't make it himself.

PETA sued the California Milk Producers Advisory Board for advertising that "Happy cows come from California, which it calls false advertising because they can't imagine that cows that get milked and impregnated constantly until they're slaughtered can be happy. The state Supreme Court sent them home. Guess it'll have to be goats next. ^_^

A Florida man shoots his car five times to put it out of its misery. There are better ways to do that, though... sell it for scrap, have it repaired, trade it in toward a new car...

I'm with this guy... A juror yawned during jury selection after having sat there for two days, and the judge found him in contempt. This is why I bring a book everywhere I go.

A Costco employee is fired for refusing to remove an eyebrow ring. That's the way things work, but she's suing Costco for, of all things, religious discrimination. Yes, she's a member of the famous Church of Body Modification. Now, how exectly does anyone justify basing a belief around modifying the body that in just about every other religion is sacred and not to be defiled? Well, there's a court somewhere out there that seems to think it works, and now people are trying to use it as leverage. But even if it is a religious thing, freedom to practice a religion ends when it infringes on the rights of others. Let's see what the Supreme Court has to say about it.

Rockport, Massachusetts allows restaurants to serve liquor after nearly 150 years of being alcohol-free, except for a period in the 30s when they weren't. Oops.
