Bill Gates was right. Always assign an important task to a lazy person; they will contribute any amount of effort now to avoid expenditure of energy later.
Last of the Rhinestone Queens.
The name of the judge was Deborah Servitto, and this is the actual court ruling.
Mr. Bailey complains that his rep is trash
So he’s seeking compensation in the form of cash.
Bailey thinks he’s entitled to some monetary gain
Because Eminem used his name in vain.
Eminem says Bailey used to throw him around
Beat him up in the john, shoved his face in the ground.
Eminem contends that his rap is protected
By the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment.
Eminem maintains that the story is true
And that Bailey beat him black and blue.
In the alternative he states that the story is phony
And a reasonable person would think it’s baloney.
The court must always balance the rights
Of a defendant and one placed in a false light.
If the plaintiff presents no question of fact
To dismiss is the only acceptable act.
If the language used is anything but pleasin’
It must be highly objectionable to a person of reason.
Even if objectionable and causing offense
Self-help is the first line of defense.
Yet when Bailey actually spoke to the press
What do you think he didn’t address?
Those false-light charges that so disturbed
Prompted from Bailey not a single word.
So highly objectionable, it could not be
Bailey was happy to hear his name on a CD.
Bailey also admitted he was a bully in youth
Which makes what Marshall said substantial truth.
This doctrine is a defense well known
And renders Bailey’s case substantially blown.
The lyrics are stories no one would take as fact
They’re an exaggeration of a childish act.
Any reasonable person could clearly see
That the lyrics could only be hyperbole.
It is therefore this court’s ultimate position
That Eminem is entitled to summary disposition.

Jon to Bill O’Reilly: “You’ve stated this: ‘I do not believe this is a thing called white privilege."
Bill O’Reilly: “There is not.”
Bill got all his values from his all-white, red-lined, Levittown upbringing where, he admits, BLACK PEOPLE WERE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED.
You may not know the name Homer Laughlin, a china factory in Newell, W. Va., but you’ll likely recognize — or have eaten off of — its most famous product: brightly colored, informal pottery called Fiesta.
While most of America’s china factories have closed, unable to compete with “made in China” or Japan or Mexico, Homer Laughlin, which set up shop on the banks of the Ohio River in 1873, is still going strong. It employs about 1,000 people.
Linda Wertheimer takes us into the depths of the factory — which feels like a relic from a different time — to show us how Fiesta has kept this company going.

Ohhhh, this tickles the button of my abiding love for American ceramics.
“Stop hurting America.”
It’s hard to believe a full decade has passed since Daily Show host Jon Stewart made that infamous plea to Crossfire hosts Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala during a tense appearance on CNN’s daily partisan shoutfest.
Daily Show Executive Producer Ben Karlin was with…
Two wonderful things came out of this: Crossfire was cancelled and Tucker Carlson stopped wearing bow ties. He didn’t stop being a dick, but he did change-up his neckwear.
Kids, hitting people is wrong. And good chance is that you’re not Harlan Ellison. That said, be kind to young writers. They tend to lash out.
