The winner this week is the Massachusetts Supreme Court.
UPskirting isn’t a crime, they say.
UPskirting is the act of taking a picture under the dress of a woman.
Remember all those patent leather shoes and the guys in school with mirrors in their shoe laces?
Well, according to this bunch it’s A OK!
And all because the Massachusetts law reads that peeping Toms aren’t peeping Toms unless the one at whom they are peeping is “nude” or ” partially nude”.
This quote from, one justice: ”A female passenger on a MBTA trolley who is wearing a skirt, dress, or the like covering these parts of her body is not a person who is ‘partially nude,’ no matter what is or is not underneath the skirt by way of underwear or other clothing,”… was written by Justice Margot Botsford of the state Supreme Judicial Court.
And yes, I checked, Margot is a woman! The court consists of Margot, two other women, and four dudes!
So, if you have on panties or even a thong, and some perv takes a picture of your nether regions with his cell phone while your one the trolley, train, or bus, he’s A. not committing a crime, and B. is going to get off…in more ways than one!
Really folks, stupid, stupid, stupid!
I met someone this week who’s name is Qiana.
My mind immediately flashed back to the 70s, DISCO, platform shoes, mirror balls, smoky clubs, and loud silky shirts.
It was a wonderful trip down memory lane.
But, I was amazed that someone would name a child Qiana.
Qiana is a fabric.
What’s her brother’s name? Cotton?
It is a silky nylon fiber developed in 1962 at the DuPont Experimental Station by a party hound named Stanley Brooke Speck.
The fiber was christened Qiana – no one will say why – and introduced in 1968.
Initially intended for high-end fashions – the designers had a hissy fit – it became a popular material in the 1970s for faux-silk men’s shirts.
gawdaful bold patterns. The shirts were generally cut tight and included wide collars to fit over the collars of the incredibly tacky double-knit suits generally worn to discos.
Nik-Nik was a manufacturer of many of the silky shirts, and I had a thousand of them.
Gosh I miss Disco!
My favorite had Hawai’ian Girls on it – topless!
It was a big hit at work.
Again, I miss the 70s!
The shirts were HUGE, and anybody who was anybody and cared about partying had a few.
In retrospect, they were hot, heavy and breathed not at all.
But, they were fun, faddish, and a must have for the Disco Dude!
Like I said, I had a thousand of them, fortunately, not one picture was taken!

Daddy was pretty smart.
This week the Left and the Right has made much of the fact that Sarah Palin “predicted” that Vladimir Putin would invade the Ukraine.
The former part-term Governor of Alaska and GOP Vice Presidential candidate wrote this week, “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine. Here’s what this ‘stupid’ ‘insipid woman’ predicted back in 2008: ‘After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia,(then)Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.’”
OK, so she got one right, sort of. But when you parse it down, it wasn’t a statement of prediction, it was one of suggestion or speculation as she used the word encourage rather than a positive word like compel or permit or cause.
Aren’t her 15 minutes UP?
