Jane Austen’s Zombies and other stuff

According to this link, some college buddies nabbed in a poker bust are asking a South Carolina judge to decide whether Texas Hold ’em is an illegal game of chance or permissible game of skill.

If you’re thinking about littering in the district of Sen. Kevin Engler, R-Farmington, think again.

He sponsored a bill today, SB 273, that would penalize littering with the death penalty.

“I think that if we kill just a couple of people we catch, the rest will catch on,” he said.

He called the people perpetrating the littering “white trash” and “rednecks.”

Soon after, he clarified he was joking about the bill.

“I’m doing this tongue in cheek, obviously,” he said, and withdrew the bill

And this, this just kinda makes me smile a bit. It’s just nice to see them say sorry, I guess:

A Detroit woman and her seven children ages 9-18 are suing the Detroit Police Department for $15 million, because they allege officers attacked them without provocation in their home earlier this month.

Tasha Flowers said Thursday that approximately 14 police officers barged into her home in the 19000 block of Shrewsbury about 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 3 without a search warrant, demanding to know where drugs and guns were. After she explained she didn’t have any, she said they twisted her arm and tried to handcuff her, while her children and two of their friends were there.

The following day, a police officer came back with $25 gift certificates to Wal-Mart and Target, $100 in cash and the promise to bring a cashmere coat because he felt bad about the alleged attack, Flowers said.
