Ill. judge accused of heroin possession quits

ST. LOUIS — A southwestern Illinois judge whose colleague died of a cocaine overdose while the two were on a hunting trip resigned Wednesday, days after he was charged with federal heroin and gun offenses in the widening courthouse drug scandal.

I should comment? Crap and corruption is everywhere. I do wonder if it is more or less open with dra-mama in the white house then it was earlier – or, thinking about it, when Clinton was Pres. No. More like it started with Johnson and crested once with the peanut farmer, again with Clinton and now again.

I had a very wealthy Kansas rancher one time take me to task, without asking my preferences or views of the subject, that he did, indeed, use horse tranquilizers, just because he wondered what they did.

My supposition was that he listened to rumor and innuendo, and after listening to his story I wished him well. I didn’t feel like explaining to him I couldn’t care less about the subject, I choose to be left alone and his story was intrusive.

Of course, he wouldn’t have understood, but by burdening me unasked, he’d done exactly what I most abhorred.  Such insight.

Near neighbor performed his Housekeepers Day routine. I wonder if he realizes she compared his physical appearance to dog doo. I don’t think so. He is kinda ugly. Today he was hiding in tree branches.

True enough.

He stayed there for two hours.

Why he thought he was hidden I’m not sure. The tree dangled out from the trunk, the leaved branches more or less opaque.

The problem, if it was a problem, is the branches only covered the upper half of the man. He was quite visible from about the waist down. And his legs were in the sunlight, such as it was.

Um. Me neither.  I’m not going to tell him. It’s too funny.

Housekeeper went camping at the city lake this weekend. She said she had to chew out one of the twenty odds. He about backed over her car and that angered her. The kid followed her around town as she was gathering camping supplies so she went by home and picked up a gun, which she allowed the kid to watch her place it in her car.

He stopped following her.

She said that Saturday night the noise over at the kids camp site was so bad she got up and went fishing – but almost lost it. She said if she’d heard about the girls boobs one more time she’d probably screamed.

After thinking about it for a minute Housekeeper put the mop back into the bucket and said: “You know. If I’d hear those boys tell everyone in the county the water in the lake was cold enough to make them girls, I’d gone over there and made it so.”

“Did they piss you off, Housekeeper?”

“Yeah. They did. Quite a bit as a matter of fact.”
