In Court: Eight people, including Brennan Hill (attempted second degree murder) are scheduled for trial starting today. Lots of caveats: the number of people on the docket typically means some of them get postponed or resolved, since no more than two trials can be held at the same time. And Hurricane Ian is on the way, possibly shutting down the courthouse at midweek, so the judge may not want to start anything that can’t be finished. See the list of people on the docket here.
Notably: This is one of the most startling, revealing graphic you’ll ever see on water as the limited resource that it is. It was NASA’s Picture of the Day on Monday, produced by Jack Cook and Adam Nieman of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution based on data crunched by Igor Shiklomanov. NASA explains: “How much of planet Earth is made of water? Very little, actually. Although oceans of water cover about 70 percent of Earth’s surface, these oceans are shallow compared to the Earth’s radius. The featured illustration shows what would happen if all of the water on or near the surface of the Earth were bunched up into a ball. The radius of this ball would be only about 700 kilometers, less than half the radius of the Earth’s Moon, but slightly larger than Saturn’s moon Rhea which, like many moons in our outer Solar System, is mostly water ice. The next smallest ball depicts all of Earth‘s liquid fresh water, while the tiniest ball shows the volume of all of Earth’s fresh-water lakes and rivers. How any of this water came to be on the Earth and whether any significant amount is trapped far beneath Earth‘s surface remain topics of research.

Part of the American dream is making money. I am a firm believer in capitalism. And I noticed that the girls at the Gold Club who invested in breast implants got more tips. I was already a 36B, heading to a C, but I wanted to go bigger. There were three doctors in Baton Rouge who did everyone’s boobs, so I started comparison-shopping at the club, asking the girls who they went to and deciding whose boob work I liked best. I chose Dr. Charles Gruenwald, a suave-looking guy with prematurely gray hair and absolutely no bedside manner. When I went for the consultation, he came in the room and said, “Lemme look at them.” Phump, off came my shirt and he was immediately hands-on, making judging grunts. I told him I wanted to go up to a 36D. […] I got a lot more tips. Instantly. Now I’ve gone on to win many Best Breasts trophies. And every time I accept one of those, I thank him by name. Best twenty-two hundred dollars I ever spent. I also named my breasts because I love them so much. Thunder and Lightning. I’ve had the same implants since 1999—they’re almost old enough to drink.
