Random Political Tidbits from the Internets

I’ve been overwhelmed with work lately, hence the lack of any updates here at the Grass Widow. To avoid me having to think too much but to get away with posting something, here are a few notes from the wonderful world of politics.

  • The “Safe Schools Czar” (can we please stop using that word?) is in some hot water about failing to report a relationship between his 15 year old student and a 30 year old man who met each other (where I always met all my dates before I was married) in the men’s bathroom at a bus station. HT: Mommy Life
  • As everyone knows, pedophile Roman Polanski is finally in jail and will hopefully be deported to the US soon to face prosecution. Hollywood types are upset about this, since artistes shouldn’t be subject to the same rules as the rest of us. Or is it because they just don’t think what he did was that bad? What do you think? Ann Althouse has a funny and outraged post on the subject here.
  • Information on the defense funds for Acorn-exposing journalists Hannah Giles, James O’Keefe and Andrew Breitbart can be found on Breitbart’s website,
  • Stephen Green makes an amusing suggestion.
  • There is a vigil for the 70 million Chinese killed by the People’s Republic of China over the past 60 years – tonight in NYC at 7pm. More information here.
