So what did her lawyer say to the judege to explain her absence? She shouldn’t be too hard to track hope.

Who is surprised by this? Seriously, anyone? Anyone?

DakRoland on December 7, 2006 at 12:42 AM

Thank God. And kudos to the judge for doing his job.

Oh expletive deleted
I thought this thread would be about Dr. Demento, the DJ who played those funny, songs on late night FM radio.

They’re coming to take me away, ha ha
They’re coming to take me away, he he, ho ho, ha ha
to the funny farm, with trees and flowers and chirping birds,
and basket weavers who sit and smile. . . .

Wow, I thought they were talkin gabout “THE” Dr. Demento too! I almost did a spit-take! Luckily they were talking about a nutjob and not just a nut (a nut in a good way).

It’s about time.

For those of us who have entirely too much time on our hands. . . .
Why People are Irrational about politics
by Michael Huemer
The Miscalculation theory
The Ignorance theory
The Divergent-Values theory
The Irrationality theory

The Self Interest bias
Beliefs as self-image constructors
Beliefs as tools of social bonding

http://home.sprynet.com/~owl1/irrationality.htm#1

As an example:
Irrationalists
http://www.scalzi.com/whatever/003460.html

appears to misuse the rational/irrational conflict described by Huemer, but does seem to exemplify the divide.

Huemer, by the way, cautions against the use of anecdotal evidence, as I am doing here. . . .

Off topic, but how can I resist pouring gasoline on a raging fire. . .

Okay. Maybe this is my night for name dropping. I just mentioned my friend and Laugh Factory owner, Jamie Masada, on another Hot Air thread and now I just can’t resist the urge to name drop the REAL Dr. Demento. I used to know his producer and sat in on a few of Dr. Demento recording sessions at his Westwood, CA studio.

I guess I am coming off as sort of a Forrest Gump of the Blogosphere.

Oh, yeah, she reminds me of an ex. Except I got away.

Let’s not forget that this is the work of a decision scientist. I always get a chuckle out of that.

Um, I vote for MOST MISLEADING HEADLINE EVER.

I thought the former wacky Radio DJ guy must have gone OJ or something, but…

Inshallah-she will be locked up for a long time.

WriterMom on December 7, 2006 at 10:20 AM

…here is an example of subjective ethics take to their extremes. No objective right and wrong, folks can make up right and wrong “on the fly”, and you end up with a fruitcake like this, answerable only to herself.

This person doesn’t need a restraining order…she needs restraints.
