Same shit, different day: Part the Second

In which I say pretty much the same thing I said yesterday, only with bigger words and longer run-on sentences. Mark my words. Malignant narcissist Dominique Strauss-Kahn will get off scott-free, scattering in his smug, entitled wake a bloody trail of ruined lives torn asunder.

Same shit different day

No time to post, but dammit, I called it back in May, when I predicted that this Dominique Strauss-Kahn excresence would walk. Naturally, because I am the world’s leading authority on New York jurisprudence, that’s exactly what’s happened. Why is he walking?

Spinster aunt has even less time today than yesterday

Spinster aunt has no time for you

This spinster aunt has no time for you people right now. So let us all praise blamer Phio Gistic, who sent in a link to some jaw-dropping shit that just went down in St. Louis Missouri, the mattress-stain of a town where, coincidentally, I spent the 25 worst years of my life.
