Do you ever read this blog?

Posted by elswinger | March 20, 2007 3:58 PM

No, but it was twice as shocking the second time ...

Erica...while I appreciate this story, and agree that it is, in fact, a good outcome, I wonder if you can or ever have posted any story that paints men in a positive light?

There are a few of us out here, wouldn't you agree?

Your cynicism wears me out.

She just did. The Bartenders probably had good fathers who taught them the virtue of looking out for other people.
Oh and the police officers who responded were most likely men. Maybe those are some good men also.

In the link in the morning news the woman on the date got up to have a cigarette, not make a phone call:

Their chance came when Tatiana went outside to smoke a cigarette.

But Erica changes it to making a phone call! Is that because she doesn't think its "PC" to have the woman associated with smoking! Hmmmmm....

Wow, six whole months for attempted rape.

That's not even a prison beef. This guy's going to do his time in fucking county.

That's awesome.

1. Already blogged, ECB!! Sheesh!
2. Excellent catch, raindrop. What's with the editorial liberty?
3. It is an awesome story. That loser gets his first spiked drink taken away and actually has more back-up drugs in case the first ones didn't work!
4. Joe Szlamnik. Sounds similar to Moe Szyslak. And this sounds like something Moe would do.

the prosecutors may have used their better judgement and sought the certain conviction as opposed to the correct but more difficult conviction.

but still, a message should be sent that this sort of behavior is not acceptable if we want it to stop. this is hardly that message.

No. 1: D'oh! No, sometimes I don't have time to keep up with Slog.

No. 6: I have no problem with smoking! I smoke sometimes myself! It was just a deadline-day fuckup, I swear!

I was hoping that when the bartender returned with a new beer, that she actually served him the one in which he put the drugs. Then, it would have been excellent for everyone to have beat the shit out of him while he was unconscious. Much more fitting than 6 months, IMO.

Unfortunately, intent matters. It would've been impossible to prove in a court of law why that asshole spiked his date's drink, even though any idiot knows the reason.

"I have no problem with smoking! I smoke sometimes myself"

Your hotness level just went down in my eyes. I'd rather have you stick another one of those beer-battered wieners in your mouth than a cigarette. I thought you were smarter than that.

Well, there you have it, folks. Don't smoke, because it will upset your blog stalkers.

Posted by Fnarf | March 21, 2007 9:13 AM

You don't miss many posts do you, Fnarf. Talk about stalking.

Posted by Samson | March 21, 2007 9:22 AM

stalker war. excellent article by the way, definitely worthy having been posted to slog twice.

Posted by josh | March 21, 2007 9:35 AM

oh, STFU, josh, you're stalking us again.

Posted by Will in Seattle | March 21, 2007 11:24 AM

Samson, if you deep fried your wiener maybe ECB would put it in her mouth.
