picture of fairness
Box of soggy kleenex: $3
Fuzzy gray sweatshirt: $35
Seeing the spoilled heiress go back to jail: Priceless
If I had been the idiot driving drunk after my license had been taken away, I would have been sent to jail. Not fru-fru jail, either -- real jail. If I had gone on a hunger strike while in jail, they would have jabbed me with a feeding tube up my nose until I was strong enough to eat on my own. I would have never been sent home on house arrest. If I had hollered and carried on during a hearing, I would have been held in contempt of court.
Why? Because I'm just like everybody else, subject to the same laws and consequences. (Gasp; what a concept!)
I don't know Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer from Adam. I have no idea how he has ruled on any other case that he's heard. I don't know his political affiliation, shoe size, or anything about him -- but I do know that tonight he is my one-minute hero. Tonight, Mike, you get a gold star for deontological actions.
Let's just get one thing straight: I am not cruel because I like justice... I am cruel because I can't wait to see her roots after another 40-ish days in jail.
Meanwhile, The Hater went to bed about ten minutes ago and instantly fell asleep. He's so stressed about moving that he's absolutely exhausted. I'm going to wait just a little longer (until the sun goes down) before I zonk, too.
