William Katz: Urgent Agenda
MARCH 20, 2010
GUILDFORD, England, March 19 (UPI) -- A British developer was acquitted of insurance fraud by a jury that apparently accepted his story that he misplaced his Lamborghini during a night on the town. Glenn Knowles, 35, said he originally lied about what happened to the car because he was embarrassed, The Daily Mail reported. Knowles and Robert Mant, 29, the joint owners of the $195,000 Italian sports car, were both tried in Guilford (England) Crown Court. The jury came back Thursday with a not guilty verdict. The defense presented evidence that Knowles had misplaced a Mercedes under similar circumstances.
From the story, I'm assuming these guys aren't married. I mean, what would you tell your wife? Really.

From Fox News: Scientists a Step Closer to Making Cloak of Invisibility a Reality.
They're behind the time. The Democrats made it a reality when they started debating health care.

Just in case you cared: From The Politico: Filmmaker Michael Moore has been making the rounds this week to promote the DVD release of his 2009 documentary “Capitalism: A Love Story.” And those rounds include his sawed-off shot-gun approach to criticizing Washington. Moore blames Democrats for holding up the health care vote, saying members of the caucus “never did that well in math.” “They believe they needed 60 votes,” Moore said, in an interview with POLITICO. “They never got off that. They believed 60 was a simple majority.”
Does anyone remember Michael Moore? Does anyone care? Talk of a man who got his 15 minutes, and not a minute extra...

NEW YORK, March 16 (UPI) -- An 83-year-old New York man accused of beating a 99-year-old man during a dispute about parking rejected a plea deal that would have kept him out of jail. Gersh Gofman turned down a deal offered by prosecutors Monday that would have resulted in a probation sentence in exchange for pleading guilty to second-degree attempted assault, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.
Look at the condition these guys are in. Who said the American health-care system is second-rate?

GLASGOW, Scotland, March 15 (UPI) -- A Scottish charity says it is holding classes on proper sleep habits for teenagers in a bid to boost the students' energy during the school day.
The kids could just listen to a Barack Obama speech. That would do the trick.

From the New York Post: WASHINGTON --- Hillary Rodham Clinton's State Department is spending $5.4 million to buy fine crystal stemware for American embassies -- but it won't give the US economy much of a boost. The contract was given to a tiny Washington, DC, interior designer, which in turn subcontracted the crystal work to a Swedish firm -- snubbing such US companies as the famous manufacturer in Clinton's own back yard, Steuben Crystal of upstate Corning. The firm didn't even get a chance to bid on the contract, which will outfit embassies and ambassadors' residences with fancy crystal for ritzy functions.
Hillary doesn't give a damn about New York. She only used this state when she needed it to become a senator. We had some hopes that, despite her seedy past, she would grow as secretary of state. Instead, she's become Obama's poodle.

PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - Authorities said a 30-year-old-man showed up so drunk for his sentencing for drunken driving that he missed his hearing and now faces even more time behind bars. Authorities said Jason Botos was driven to the Papillion courthouse on Thursday by his father, who needed help from deputies to get his son out of the vehicle.
I wonder if daddy noticed that sonny was drinking.
