I'm opposed to the death penalty.

Good! There's hope for you yet.

How about determining intent to deliver/distribute solely by weight or volume of the controlled substance, in the asbsence of -- or in direct contradiction to -- any physical evidence of distribution?

Well, shame on me for getting sucked into a conversation with a moron that I already had the good sense to put on ignore. I guess that'll learn me to "read this post."

So, can anyone who isn't a complete shithead explain to me why Meade first started throwing shit at the wall when asked if he supported hate crime legislation but then turned around two posts later and quoted John Boehner on why we shouldn't have hate crime legislation?

Sounds like a reasonable defense to me. Let's move on. Prosecuting the perp would be a waste of time as he was only lashing out due to hurt feelings.

Christian Schneider: "From what I now understand, there are some questions about some details that appeared in the original story, which I quoted at length. As a result, I decided to hold off on running the post until I can verify some of the facts that have been reported."

No further word from Christian since Thursday.

Good health to Kyle Wood.

Because he's a self-aggrandizing dork throwing things up on TDPF in an effort to make up for feelings of inadequacy brought on by losing his previous self-defining gig being a fawning sycophant on Mommy's blog? Slurping Mommy's every thought kind of lost its cachet once they began to cohabit.

Wowzers. What's the source of those texts? My gut feeling is there's no way Phillip Frank sent those, any spouse of a longtime politician would be too smart to do that. This is starting to stink.

The messages were apparently sent two or three days before the Wednesday beating, according to Wood, who is alleging to investigators that the messages came from Frank.

Got it. Should be easy enough to verify then, right? That he actually did receive the texts, and that they came from Frank? Frightening.

Seems like it would be. And making false reports to the police would be a pretty serious crime, wouldn't it?
