I just read your links. Oh man! What a mess!

This would be the basis for a good if a little trashy movie or an episode of Law and Order...

You're right about that. It's got everything! Including speeding tickets.



BG- I'm here performing CPR if you know what I mean. :-)

What really bugs me about Jeanne Pirro is that a few years back, a senior with mad computer skills for his time and place meddled with the official web site of his high school in Westchester (no one I knew, btw). Still I was close enough to follow the case. The seventeen-year-old had inserted a rather delightful cartoon tree on the front page. And little by little, tiny birds would fly onto the branches and chirp or whistle. The boy had made up the tune: it was not a take-off on anything disrepectful or risque. It was more dum-de-dum, I'm graduating soon. After about five minutes, the meddling disappeared and people could return to looking up who had won which basket-ball game. Pirro did everything she could to throw that boy in jail. In fact, he did spend a couple nights in an orange jump suit handcuffed to an overhead pipe. And though Pirro and the township confiscated all his computer equipment, never to be seen again, they could not, in the end, prevent him from graduating.

This is a totally ramdom observation, but all day my AOL (shut up!) homepage has featured side by side photos of Mr. and Mrs. Pirro.

Since that page is hardly my go-to news source, it took me a few log-ons to look closely enough to realize that the box was actually a link to a "Whatever happended to...?" feature, and that the photos were actually Laura Branigan and Jerry Lee Lewis! I can't tell you why -- there's no contextual reason, even if you go to a "Great balls of fire/I think they got the alias you've been livin' under" kind of place -- but for some reason it cracked me up way more than it should have.
