    Do we really want them back here? Back in my young days--a long time ago--district justices sent them to England as an alternative to 6 months in the Joy.

    Hard to see anyone loving Charlie, but it'd be easier from a distance, so maybe

    Joining the army was the other option at that time until the army objected.

    Spare a thought for our UK legal friends when in the US - focused discrimination on display in lots of places

    Let him who has not sinned cast the first stone.

    But he is adept enough at casting stones and asserting some moral high ground though he himself is more than flawed.

    We're all guilty of it. Sometimes it helps to point it out.

    Who was trusting whom in this situation? The guy got things completely muddled.



    While on the roof, the diplomat, who serves as the second secretary to the UN for Australia, then climbed to a higher roof landing where he began swinging a female friend around, sources said.

    Once he put her down, everyone decided to go back inside.

    While inside, the 24-year-old man, who is the husband of the woman Simpson had been swinging, confronted Simpson over the gesture, sources said.

    The two men then stepped out onto Simpson’s balcony, where Simpson told the husband that he meant no harm, according to sources.

    To prove to the husband that he could trust him, Simpson suggested playing the “trust game” — in which Simpson would lean back on the ledge and trust the man to catch him before he would fall.
