ZOMBIES, PER SE.

The secret is out: Our favourite restaurant in NYC was just outed by the NY Times as the Best Restaurant in NYC. And it wasn't easy getting in before this. Per Se!

We're sure we read somewhere in some Federalist Paper a warning against electing a President with the first name of Mitt. It's just not kosher as Publius would have said/written.

A zombie catastrophe in Canada.

Justice Scalia is a snob (if you didn't know that already.). Here is what he told the Senate Judiciary committee:

Justice Scalia said routine drug cases belong in state courts, which handle the vast majority of trials for most criminal offenses. The Judiciary Committee chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.), himself a former state prosecutor, agreed.

The increase in federal criminal law has required Congress to enlarge the federal court system, and Justice Scalia suggested that has helped diminish the "elite" quality of the federal judiciary.

Pardon us a moment. Ok, we're back from being sick. Elite quality? Per Se is elite quality. The Outback steakhouse is not, even if they dress the steak up with a bloomin onion.

See You In Court.

Yes, Rumpy. Per Se was flying under the radar. Get over yourself.

You laugh. But he is 100% correct in that the federal courts have no business handling routine drug and gun possession cases. This all started under Ronald Reagan under the guise of "law and order." Does anyone really think this county would be any worse off if the US Attorney's office had its wings trimmed by 50%? I didn't think so.

Queen Pizza, Court Street, Brooklyn. 2 best slices in town and a coke will set you back about 8 bucks.
