notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Fucking Scalias

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's daughter was arrested for driving under the influence of alchohol on Monday. Which, while a fairly douchebaggy thing to do in and of itself, is understandable. It's obviously wrong, but DUIs happen all the time. However, driving drunk with three children in your car? It takes a Scalia-caliber asshole to do that.
The daughter of a U.S. Supreme Court justice is facing drunken driving and child endangerment charges after Wheaton police stopped her as she drove a van with three children.

Ann S. Banaszewski, 45, was arrested about 7:25 p.m. Monday when police curbed her van after receiving a call about a suspected drunken driver at a McDonald's, Wheaton Deputy Police Chief Thomas Meloni said.

Banaszewski was pulled over after officers saw her drive away from the fast-food restaurant, Meloni said. Three of her children -- all under age 17 -- were with her, he said.

Update: In other drunk driving news, a drunken Mexican hombre and his ladyfriend tried to kill my sister. No word on whether children were involved.
