Glenn Curry, who appeared to be cold-clocked in the jaw while handcuffed by a police officer, has only a traffic ticket on his criminal record-- not exactly the "numerous arrests" BPD spokesman Matt Jablow claimed. Said Curry's lawyer, "If the Baltimore City police wants to look at anyone's record, they should look in the mirror." Burn!

At a hearing Friday, Judge Althea Handy sentenced Donte Knight, 22, of North Stricker Street to 50 years in prison, the first five years (!) to be served without the possibility of parole.

The Examiner article quotes councilman Harris asking for a state or federal investigation of the incident of the cop punching the man in cuffs. Usually when politicians ask for that kind of investigation, it's the headline.

You noticed the humour in 'Better' Waverly? We snicker when we say it.

'Worser' Waverly would be so very hard to say.

The funny thing is... Steele made up the Oreos story. Unbelievable that a Republican would lie.

Steele didn't make up the Oreo story, but Ehrlich's people did wildly exagerate what happened. A couple of idiots were handing out Oreos at Steele's speech, but then various conservative bloggers & talk radio idiots got ahold of the story, and started making up BS about how Steele was "pelted" with cookies.

Steele started to exaggerate the Oreo incident after a well known African-American blogger posted a picture of him in blackface. The blogger posted it in response to Steele's "I don't play golf" comment that he made when a reporter asked him what he thought of Bobby Haircut holding a fundraiser at an all-white country club.
