IMF Nasty!

New York City is riddled with people with diplomatic immunity. From parking tickets to murder, foreign nationals under the umbrella of diplomatic immunity cannot be prosecuted. They like to flaunt it too, letting parking tickets accumulate under the wipers of their cars and parking in front of fire plugs. When I lived there, the state of New York issued these tags, but evidently the feds issue them now.
So it surprises this observer that Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the IMF, is actually being charged, and held without bail for an accusation of rape and sexual assault. Seems as if this ugly old geezer (allegedly) chase the help around a ritzy NY hotel and (allegedly) had the young lady perform sex acts on him. I am just surprised he was not covered by diplomatic immunity.

Not that I am sorry we are prosecuting him for a felony charge. Oh, no, no. Have at it, Mr. D.A. Incidently, kudos to the judge for recognizing him as a flight risk!

He'll probably just get a slap on the wrist. He must be doing something wrong in the IMF if they are that quick to dispose of him.

BTW, are you going to write/call the KC clowncil and ask them to vote NO on the Bannister debacle?

I should, shouldn't I?

Terrible idea in so many ways, to put any sort of retail there--if retail was water, we'd be having Mississippi River type flooding!

So much for that--they've already passed the damn TIF.
