    With the public so outraged, the DA must have been under a lot of pressure to throw out as many severe charges as possible. Even terrorism, which must be pretty broadly defined in Michigan.

    Well, as one writer put it, he is more famous now than he was in 2019. I don’t know if that makes him more or less of a valuable commodity in the market for actors. Depending on his personal capacity...

    My favorite line from “Casablanca”:

    “I like to think you killed a man. It’s the romantic in me”.

    Claude Rains got all the best lines in that movie.

    His defense seems to be trying to make the case that the two brothers attacked him out of homophobia. It makes the details provided earlier seem even more preposterous to me.

    I don’t know that he...

    I see Jussie Smollett will be reprising his role as accused hate crime fabricator in Chicago. Apparently his previous deal didn’t protect him from double jeopardy. His defense is coming out swinging,...

    Every third guy around here has a gun. In deer season, they come in from out of town. It’s not likely to create the sort of panic you’re looking for.
