Goodbye 2009!

To the tune of My Favorite Things (music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II):

Birthers and Deathers, and all kinds of crazy,

Justice [Sandra Day] O’Connor has often been cited as saying that a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases. I am not so sure Justice O’Connor is the author of that line since Professor Resnik attributes that line to Supreme Court Justice Coyle. I am also not so sure that I agree with the statement.

Barbie’s Dreamhouse of Ill Repute

From USA Today:

NEW YORK — Toy maker Mattel isn’t amused by a model’s pornographic play on the name of its clean-cut Barbie dolls.

Mattel went to court Tuesday to complain that the website of an adult entertainer named China Barbie has tried to benefit from the success of the 48-year-old line of dolls. They include Barbie’s sister, Skipper, her best friend, Midge, and Skipper’s boyfriend, Kevin.

…snip…

The lawsuit said Global China Networks used a domain name containing the word “barbie” in a “bad faith attempt to profit from Mattel’s Barbie trademarks” and had damaged Mattel’s good name.

But…but….but….Barbie doesn’t have a…well, you know! I guess some people aren’t picky.
