And I thought the courts had backed off enforcing sodomy laws.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has been fined $70 for allegedly rear-ending an automobile in a minor four-car collision, a United States Park Police spokesman confirmed Wednesday.

Scalia was not injured in the accident, which occurred Tuesday when the 75-year-old high court justice's car rear-ended another vehicle on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in suburban Virginia, according to Sgt. David Schlosser of the Park Police.

The narrow and winding four-lane divided parkway travels along the Potomac River past the nation's capital, and is popular among both commuters and tourists.

Scalia was driving himself to work when the accident occurred. He was charged with being at fault for the fender-bender by the investigating officer, Schlosser said. It was not known whether Scalia will pay or contest the fine.
No word on injuries to the party who took it from behind.

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

You go a few MPH over the speed limit in California and you're looking at several hundred dollars.

I guess that's the difference between a state that can't print money and a federal government that can.

Not paying attention because he was distracted reading JDA on his hand held device?

I want to see him contest the ticket and represent himself.

One-handed reading of JDA while driving is not for amateurs.

Your honor.

Are you going to post on the Fed being forced to make it's discount desk loans public based on a lawsuit by Bloomberg and Fox Business news, or are you still digesting it?

Aren't you cute? Working on it RIGHT now actually... have something much bigger up my sleeve that I'm focusing on tonight (stay tuned, it's a biggie) but will get something up shortly...
