John Lott v Freakonomics (Cont'd)

Mary Rosh is creaming in her pants today. Oh, wait. Is that libelous? Implying that a woman who doesn't exist is excited...is that like saying that John R. Lott, Jr. shot a load into his shorts?

Judge Ruben Castillo of the U.S. District Court in Chicago handed down a decision last week allowing crazy-man's* defamation lawsuit against Steven D. Levitt to go forward. If it makes it to trial, is John-John going to dress in drag and appear as a character witness?

*Uh-oh. Now I'm in for it. I called him crazy. He's going to cry to his mommy and then sue me. 'Cause technically, he's not crazy. "Mary Rosh" is just a sock puppet he uses to stroke his own ego. And sometimes his teenage son uses it too. I'm not sure what a psychiatrist would make of that; technically it's neither a manifestation of an Electra nor Oedipal complex.
