Alton attorney Emert Wyss thought he could make money in a Madison County class action lawsuit, but he accidentally sued himself instead. Now he has four law firms after his money – and he hired all four.

Fascinating piece about Dr. Heimlich, who is apparently a narcissistic, megalomanic freak prone to lies, charlatanism, and vicious attacks against anyone who dares question his increasingly bizarre ideas.
Just ask his son.
Wapsi Square, about which I’ve blogged recently, has gotten super freaky creepy and dramatic lately. What the heck is going on? What IS that thing that’s after Monica? GAH! I guess I complained too soon about the story moving too slowly…
Achewood makes me happy again by including the line “Yup. That’s my go-to shank.” …In the midst of an extended discussion of the merits of various “shanking” techniques learned in prison, from various masters of the form.
I clearly need a “go-to shank.”
Lost stuffed animals are really sad. My son’s most beloved, security-providing, always-with-him object was a stuffed lion (named Lion), given to him for his first birthday by my mom. He took it with him when we visited Iowa City this spring/summer, and it got lost. We at first thought it was in the hotel, but they never found it (they sent us a different stuffed lion that they found…), and we now suspect that it was lost somewhere in downtown Iowa City, maybe near the park.
That was a lot for a three year old to bear, especially when the hotel told us they found it and they mailed it to us and we went to pick it up and we opened the box and it wasn’t Lion, it was some other lion.
I’d pay a lot to get that lion back.
I’ve considered trying to find a duplicate but I don’t know what brand it was or anything; all I know is it was bought two and a half years ago at Wal-mart or something. And I’m not sure a duplicate would help.
