Murder, British style...

Murderer Jane Andrews absconds from prison
Jane Andrews, the former aide to Sarah, Duchess of York who was jailed for life for murdering her boyfriend, is on the run after absconding from East Sutton Park open prison in Maidstone, Kent.
She ran off, eh? I guess there was no way to predict such a thing? Open. Prison. For a murderer.

And there's this...
Policeman jailed for 18 years for murder of fiancée
Apparently the good constable told her he was calling off the wedding because he really dug some other chick he had just impregnated. She started crying and, well, who can put up with that?
Then there are the comments of the judge:
"I have some understanding of the position of what you found yourself in. I believe you did not face up to the situation when you should have done."
Some understanding of the position? Which position? Ditching the fiancee three days before the wedding in favor of the ho he knocked up, or wanting to hit a woman five times with a hammer for starting to cry? Judge is a fucking idiot.

Wehner on the Palin 'Fuss'

Over at NRO's The Corner, Pete Wehner shares some thoughts on Sarah Palin, half of which I agree with:

(W)hat Palin has revealed about some of her critics is, in the words of my colleague Yuval Levin, "the unfortunate and unattractive propensity of the American cultural elite to treat those who are not deemed part of the elect with condescension and contumely."
A reader responds and addresses the other half.

Monism and Pluralism

When you can't think of anything intelligent to post, it's good to have friends that write smart stuff a guy can link to.
