Thanks for all the lawsuits

In the wake of the speeches of Charlotte and Tampa and the desire of governments everywhere to make life miserable, well more miserable for more, let us take the time to think of those who truly had a bad year.

Poor Rupert Murdoch, he’s lost business, paid millions in settlements, and lost even more of his reputation all because his newspapers engaged in a series of phone hacks. Meanwhile, he dealt with the problem by being a role model for Joe Paterno (minus the dying).

He must be punished:

News Corp has cut this year’s bonuses for four top executives, including mogul Rupert Murdoch… the company’s 81-year old chairman and chief executive, earned a bonus of $10.4 million in fiscal year 2012, which ended on June 30, the filing said.

Poor Rupert only ended up making $30 million instead of his usual $33 million.

That will leave a “real” mark.

Friday READ – 7 September 2012



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
