Jimmy McMillan

I’ve been here since 1977, and they want more money! It’s about ‘My Rent is Too Damn Low.’

Maybe the landlord doesn’t know, but he can’t bulldog me because I know the law.

* Duquesne’s law student clothing drive was pathetic, but this just takes the cake. Would you pay an ASU law student’s tuition? [ABA Journal]

* Personal responsibility fail. Getting lok’d up probably won’t make you insane enough to kill yourself, but this lawsuit says otherwise. [TIME]

* Jimmy McMillan’s $350M lawsuit: the font used by the NY Board of Elections was too damn big to write his full party name on the ballot. [New York Post]

As promised, I’m posting pictures of my Halloween costume. I went as soon-lose-his-gubernatorial-bid Jimmy McMillan, of The Rent is Too Damn High fame.

Unfortunately, I only came away with two usable pictures from the night. About halfway through the evening my pants ripped down the side (I’m not sure why, it might have had something to do with Four Loko).

I’d post those pics, but really, nobody needs to see that.

So here are my safe for work pics. And thanks to the Above the Law reader who dressed up as Lady Justice and posed with me. Good times.

If you want to marry a shoe, I’ll marry you.
