Bitter Newsroom Lawyer, News & Views 3 Comments

Quick headlines from the Bitter Newsroom:

George O’Dowd (a.k.a. Boy George) will be joining the Culture Club of prison.  He was found guilty today of handcuffing a ‘Boy toy’ male escort and whipping him with a metal chain.  Or as the less-flamboyant sect calls it: Imprisonment.  [Times Online]

“Marc Stuart Dreier, a high-living New York lawyer who has a gaggle of celebrity clients and a large firm that bears his name, was released from a Canadian jail on Friday after promising to return to court to face charges that he impersonated another lawyer on Tuesday at the offices of a large Canadian pension fund.” But aside from Dreier’s asswipe firm photo, this story is more an Above the Law prop-fest for breaking the story.  [The New York Times]

There will be bailout. “Several officials say the White House and congressional Democrats have agreed on $15 billion in loans, which is less than half of what the car chiefs were seeking.” Half-assed assistance.  Ahh, bipartisanism.  [CBS News]

There are few things more overplayed these days than the embroiled saga of Jennifer Aniston.  But in an interesting (tittie) twist, a wet, bra-less picture of the actress might be hitting the market in the form of a 2009 calendar.  Legality debatable, but I smell a Maddox Jolie-Pitt stocking stuffer.  [Fox News]

One dude takes pictures of anyone who goes into an NY strip club and posts them on the web in protest of an image of a scantily clad woman on a billboard advertising the club.  And MY DAD doesn’t appreciate that one bit, thank you.  []

An eff-ing judge in Ohio sent a lawyer to jail for cussing in court.  Yakety yak.  []
