I’m impressed

The Sports Gal on TV bandwagon jumping:

He [Simmons] complains all the time about everyone who jumped on the Red Sox bandwagon after they won the World Series — every time he sees someone in a brand new hat he makes a face, and he won’t let me wear my orange Sox hat, he’ll stick it down his pants and throw it in the garbage so I won’t want to wear it. But how’s that different than people jumping on the “Lost” bandwagon?

Not only is the Sports Gal bringing something to the table, but the glimpse she offers into the Sports Couple’s relationship makes it clear that there is a pair that can be confirmed to be stranger than Spacebunny and I. Not only would Spacebunny never wear an orange hat, but even if she did, I can assure you that the thought of putting it down my pants would never occur to me.

Now, I couldn’t care less about TV bandwagons, but since it’s obvious that some people do, I have to side with the Sports Gal here.

Remember, women never lie about rape

From the Telegraph:

A woman who falsely cried rape against her former husband was facing jail yesterday after being convicted of perverting the course of justice. Sally Henderson, 40, a mother of two, described by the prosecution as a “wicked liar”, claimed Richard Cooke, 39, had repeatedly raped her during their year-long marriage. But police discovered her claims were almost identical to false allegations she had made five years earlier against a previous boyfriend, Mark Rowe, 42, Gloucester Crown Court heard.

Lifting an order preventing her identification, Recorder David Lane, QC, said: “The public has a right to know the identity of a person who makes such allegations and who seeks to use the system of justice for her own, unscrupulous ends….”

Henderson reported the false rapes only after both men left her. Mr Cooke was held in a police cell for 36 hours following his arrest.

Even worse, think of the quazillion billion non-rapes that already aren’t being reported! The frightening thing about Ms Henderson’s arrest is that it could have a chilling effect on the probability that women who haven’t been raped or bave had a “near-rape experience” will report those fake rapes, near rapes, hypothetical rapes and unicorn rapes to the police.
