I think Da Mann is having a bad week.
First off, all those greenies who were pushing him to the front and encouraging him to sue the ass off Mark Steyn and others for millions appear reluctant to support him the closer the hearing date gets. Not one amicus brief has been filed to help him out in his legal crusade to close down free speech about public figures. If you don’t happen to be familiar with it, an amicus brief is a statement by your peers in a libel or slander suit saying you’re held in high regard. Apparently not a single other climate scientist felt compelled to place their reputational pecker on the chopping block for him.
Though that might have been the cruellest chop avoided by some people, it was a cruel cut as far as Mickey was concerned, especially on top of the major news organisations…

A few eBay sellers have the balls to be asking for upwards of $130 (shipping included) for the 3D variant cover of Batman: The Dark Knight #23.4, a.k.a. Joker’s Daughter #1. I guess it’s rare. And it should be – it is seriously one of the most abominably terrible books ever written.
I’m not overly familiar with Ann Nocenti’s work, but judging by this issue, I’m not sure comic book writing is really the career for her.

“We have heard the voice of Scotland and now the millions of voices of England must also be heard,” said David Cameron this morning, strongly suggesting that he will press for English votes for English laws and finally answer the West Lothian question. Within five minutes Labour had come out against the idea:
Very amusing of Wee Dougie to attack the plan as being “driven by politics”. Of course Labour’s opposition to English votes for English laws definitely isn’t driven by their cynical, anti-democratic need for Scottish MPs to pass legislation in England. Normal politics resumes…
