The Smoking Gun got ahold of correspondence between Rush Limbaugh's lawyers and the Florida State Attorney, trying to cop a plea to a "pretrial diversion program" that would require him to receive additional treatment for his addiction.

The most amusing quote from those speaking on Limbaugh's behalf?

"The public is better served by treating addicts as patients rather than criminals."

But that's not what Rush believes...

"Too many whites are getting away with drug use, too many whites are getting away with drug sales, too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail ... The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."
-- Rush Limbaugh. October 5, 1995

Shouldn't he fire these lawyers who are misrepresenting his strong moral and ethical beliefs and find some who are willing to stop wasting the court's time and plea to what he is truely guilty of?

In any case, the Florida D.A. didn't buy it. They said a review of the case revealed violations "in excess of ten felony counts", but that the case could be settled without a trial if Limbaugh pled to Doctor Shopping, was put on three years probation, monitored with random drug tests, and served community service designed to raise awareness about the dangers of drug addiction.

Really, this offer is remarkably lenient -- far more lenient than what Limbaugh would've offered to others. I would take the offer if I were him...

Crush da crush.

The LiveJournal Crush meme (link not posted, so as to spare your curiosity...) is floating around again, and now it looks like I have 4.71 secret crushes that I don't know about. They want a $4 "donation" to tell me who has these crushes on me. For a donation-based service, however, it doesn't seem very optional, and I'm opposed to the idea of giving them my $$ for their evil meme.

But am I curious?!

I was *born* curious.


So, if you're one of those 4.71 people (or just someone who is interested in me anyways) all I ask is that you stop teasing me, and that you consider the possibility of going on a date with me instead. Here's my standing offer... an hour of my time -- possibly more -- either in person, in chat, or via webcam. It doesn't even need to be a date for that matter, especially if such a term is inappropriate or intimidating.

If this seems interesting to you, reply (or send email to insomnia @ livejournal.com) with the date details (in person, chat, cam) and three possible times of availability --Tuesday and Wednesday evenings excepted -- and I will do my best to confirm for one of the three.

(If you have a crush on me, but don't respond to my offer of a date, do you suffer from the love that dare not speak its name?!)

I don't expect any of this to actually work, mind you... but still, I'd rather save the $4.
