Friendship? Jesus, thats the minimum Id do for someone I barely knew in a situation like that. Hell, its the minimum Id do for someone whod taken some drugs on purpose in an attack of poor judgment. Its what any remotely decent, adequately socialized person would do. How on earth could you hire someone to whom this isnt just gobsmackingly obvious to write an advice column about friendship?
James Joyner, from whom I found this story, makes the following comment:
My grad school buddy Wayne, a retired Green Beret, says that men make what he terms Bozeman, Montana friends. We may move across the country and fail to keep in touch but, if we were to get a phone call in the middle of the night from one of them after not hearing from them for three years saying, Im in jail in Bozeman, Montana and need you to wire me $2000, our only question would be about how to get him the funds and wed be on the phone to Western Union two minutes later.

You would think wed busted him for unpaid parking tickets. The guy drugged a thirteen year old girl in order to rape her. Perhaps the French have some sophisticated, European point of view on these things that I, with my puritan ancestry, simply cannot rise to.
Or they could just be miserable shitheels.
To quote a puppy blending monster: Heh.

Elizalde's doctor, UC Davis Professor of Clinical Surgery, Robert Canter has written to the school to ask them to reconsider their decision, saying, "I strongly believe that (Leanna) should be allowed to participate in her graduation ceremony, and I think that refusal to do so would be construed as a punitive action unbefitting a pediatric cancer patient."
I guess that it's a good thing Leanna's doctor isn't an officious prick like the school principal or she might not even be in the news right now.

-Hey, I would not want to mess with her. She's not called Five Feet of Fury for nothing-
As it turns out, some fucknozzle called Richard "I'm a Butt Plug" Warman is trying to squeeze money out of, as well as shut down, his critics. I guess it's tough to be Dick. People are just so mean to him. Of course, since he's a loser, scum-sucking parasite douchebag ufcknozzle, he should generally expect criticism. Not our Richard, though. Ezra Levant has more on our pathetically thin-skinned asswipe:
Its not the first threat Ive received from him; back in December, when I mentioned him in passing in a National Post Op-Ed, Warman fired off another threatening letter to me. Youve got to read it. I mean, really it included the complaint that I dared to call him anti-racist, rather than anti-racist. Thats right: the fact that I used quotation marks around those words was one of the reasons he was threatening to sue the National Post and me.
If that was Warmans most petty complaint, his most ironic complaint was that I called him a censor who abused the legal system, and that if I didnt immediately censor myself with a retraction and apology, hed hit me with a lawsuit. That blissful lack of self-awareness would be cute if it wasnt accompanied by a threat sort of like when Warman encouraged some young rowdies to take the piss out of people who are so pompous and so full of themselves by assaulting them with a cream pie. It was unsettling to watch a lawyer conspire in the commission of an assault.
Wow. So all it takes are the use of quotation marks to hurts this "asshole's" feeling? Okay, "Richard", let me clear: when I call "you" a useless "douchebag", a "piece" of used "toilet paper", "a" scummy "pussbucket" not "worth" lancing, I "mean it" in only the "best" possible sense.
As it "turns out", Dicky is suing several people in addition to Kathy Shaidle:
- Ezra Levant (famous for his stirring YouTube video of his confrontation with the Canadian Human Rights tribunal after he published the Mohammed Cartoons)
- FreeDominion.ca (Canadas answer to FreeRepublic.com)
- Kate McMillan of SmallDeadAnimals.com
- Jonathan Kay of the National Post daily newspaper and its in-house blog
- and me, Kathy Shaidle of FiveFeetOfFury.com
Kathy, Kate, Ezra, Jonathan and FreeDominion.ca need your help. Please contribute to their legal defense fund. Kathy has a PayPal button for you to use.
I've long extolled the virtues of bloggers in general. When Lileks, Dean Esmay,Jeff Goldstein and recently Andrea Harris had financial difficulties or needs, people chipped in what they could to help keep the wolves away from the door. This is potentially even more important. Please give, if you can. If you cannot give anything, at least link to Kathy's post.
Update: Kim du Toit found a picture of our winner of Littlest Dick of the Year Award.
Update: I should have mentioned that I found out about Kathy Shaidle's problem via Rachel Lucas. Whoops. Anyway, consider that oversight corrected.

They came into the home of American citizens, took their child (5+ weeks old and nursing) into state custody and placed it in foster care. Why? Because the parents, due to their religious beliefs, objected to a test the state had mandated. The child's health wasn't in danger, he didn't need any medical treatment, in fact he is quite healthy. But the state felt that its priorities and decisions overruled those of the parents and drew the child's blood over the parents strenuous objections. Chilling.
Keeping that in mind, imagine, if you will, what powers the state will be left to exercise if it eventually is placed charge of every aspect of your health care.
And there exists a sizeable chunk of people in this country who think that what we need more of is more and bigger government. I'd call them stupid, except that I'd be insulting stupid people.

Hey, here's a thought: since you agree with everything I say, I say that you should go stick your head in a blender.

A three-month-old kitten is fighting for his life after allegedly being set afire by two teenage girls last week.
The male shorthaired kitten, named Adam, received second- and third-degree burns over 75 percent of its body and was being treated at the Animal Hospital in Cotati, located in Northern California's Sonoma County, officials said.
The kitten has undergone two surgeries and had its tail and the tips of its ears amputated.
Two girls have been charged with cruelty to animals in connection with the case. They were arrested last Friday after allegedly pouring flammable liquid on the cat, only 8 weeks old at the time and setting it on fire.
A boy and his friend said they saw the smoke and heard the cat shrieking while the girls laughed.
The girls are being held in Sonoma County's Juvenile Hall. The maximum penalty carried by the charges against them is three years of confinement.
I dunno. The punishment doesn't seem to fit the crime. I've been thinking and come up with a few alternative punishments which I think would be better:
- Paint them with honey and stake them out on an anthill. Sure, it's been done to death, but that doesn't make it any less effective.
- Have a cage with a Tasmanian Devil tied to their midsection, with the cage open against their flesh. If they survive the devil's method of escape, they're free to go.
- Use a paper cutter to remove their fingers, one millimeter at a time. When does the punishment stop? Like the kittens, as soon as someone hears the screams and comes looking, we'll stop. Unfortunately for the girls, we'll be on one of the more remote Bikini atolls. But hey, you never know.
I'm sure that lots of turds will come out of the woodwork saying that their lives have been hard. Not as hard as the kitten's, I'll wager. To anyone who wants to try and defend these girls, please be advised that you should go fuck yourself.
Update: Apparently this happened last month and the kitten is doing well. Here's more:
Adam is 12 weeks old now and doing well, said Wright. The cost of his care and medical attention at the shelter would normally cost between $20,000 and $30,000, she said. Anybody interested in contributing to the costs of caring for Adam can go to the animal hospital in the 500 block of E. Cotati Avenue in Cotati or call 707-792-0200.
A vet is doing the multiple skin graft pro bono, which is kind of cool. Give if you're interested.

He's received lots of well wishes (and hopefully tips, you stingy bastards) from folks, which is to be expected since Jeff is a decent guy doing his best to protect his family. Anyway, he posted a followup today. Here's an excerpt:
Once Ive cleared my head and completed this latest round of legal maneuvering, Ill be back.
Hopefully some of you will stick around. But if not, I understand, and I thank you for supporting this site.
One day, the armadillo will dance.
We'll be here. Take care, Mr. Goldstein.

I don't have the stomach for my usual brand of snark right now. My fervent hope is that the persons responsible for the massacre are currently, or will be soon, sucking the barbed cock of Satan.

A street in a Paris suburb has been named in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of the 1981 murder of a Philadelphia police officer.
"In France, they see him as a towering figure," said Suzanne Ross, co-chair of the Free Mumia Coalition of New York City, who was part of an April 29 ceremony to dedicate the Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal in the city of St. Denis.
Ross said the street is in the town's Human Rights district, which includes Nelson Mandela Stadium.
So the French don't look with disdain upon all Americans. Apparently they have a fever in their hearts for cop killers.
France is going the way of the dodo within the next 50-100 years, I believe, due in large part to their socialist society coupled to an insane immigration plan that's eating the country from the inside out. I, for one, will not shed too many tears. And hey, I won't mind calling pom frittes french fries anymore.

I shouldn't read stories like this one. All that they do is raise my blood pressure to dangerous levels.
Update: Ace weighs in as well.
