Speaking of girls (which is frequently done around here) and in order to better appeal to the many and varied interests of True Believers all across the blogosphere, a little solicitation of feedback is in order.
The famed Saturday Gingermageddon posts have been a staple of this blog for some time, and on occasion we have changed things up with a Blondepocalypse, a Brunettenarok, an Asian Invasion or other themed Saturday totty post.

[L]aid the groundwork by telling the jury that Vazquez had pleaded guilty to drunken driving in Tulare County in 2006 and again in Fresno County in 2010. Each time, a judge warned her that if she got drunk and killed someone, she could be charged with murder, Wright said.
By all means read the whole thing. Yr. obdt. has on many occasions found reason to be grateful to not live in Californey – this is one more. How the state’s justice system can fail so utterly is astounding – but then, California as a state is pretty much failing utterly. This incident is just one more straw.
