I spent the whole day Sunday doing taxes and then drinking the celebratory adult bevvie to celebrate our supposed tax refunds. We shall see what comes and when but I'm reasonably optimistic.

later

OMG, a trashy tabloid I prefer not to link leaked the police report of a girl who was raped when she was 14 by an 18 year old and a 17 year old who got her drunk. The 18 year old, now 35, admits he had sex with her, although he claims that a drunk 14 year old somehow gave consent. Maybe if it happened in 1928 but this was 1998? SO anyway rape was still pretty cool if you were rich in 1998 so he was never prosecuted and now the statute of limitations. So, honestly, you might ask what gutter press would dig this ugly story out in the first place, but apparently it's meant to somehow discredit the woman's claim that at age 17 she was used and abused at sex parties attended by Prince Andrew. I don't know how this helps their case, since people who have been victimized once are (more often than not) favorite targets for abusers. And everybody knows -- has known for decades -- that Andrew is a player. Does he think teen girls show up at sex parties because of his good looks and charming personality? Somebody's getting paid to bring them there. And if he didn't pay the girl, then somebody paid the pimp. IMHO. Especially since dear Andrew was famous friends with the already convicted pimp in question. Can't help wondering how many other victims are out there who will never say a word...
