I told you before of my claim for a fair share of the dosh going to those Euro-crooks because the EU has won this year's Peace Prize award. My claim rests on the fact that I am, albeit somewhat reluctantly, a member of the EU and, dammit, I help pay for the whole rotten edifice. In addition, I relied on the example set by Prof. Michael Mann of Penn State U. who claimed that he, personally was a Nobel Laureate on the grounds that he, along with several hundred others, did some work for the IPCC which itself did win the prize. Now, those rascals at National Review, who are being sued by Prof. Mann for defamation of character, have placed the following ad in the Penn State U. student newspaper:
Something tells me that this fight is going to get down and dirty before it's finished. 'Peace 'n' Hope' are not helped by Mark Steyn, another defendant in the legal action, who is also a very, very, naughty boy and who wrote this on his blog:
While I wait for Hurricane Sandy to shatter my woodlot into delicatessen-sliced tree-rings, some readers have asked for a progress report on Nobel laureate Michael Mann's* suit against NR. So here's a couple of outside takes: This gentleman compares it to Oscar Wilde's suit against the Marquess of Queensberry, while this analyst compares it to Napoleon invading Russia.
Personally, I think it's more like Oscar Wilde invading Russia, but each to his own. (My emphasis)
Ooooh, goody-goody, this could be even better than the Lesbian-straightener's day in court!
