The Wedding of the Year

Move over Chelsea, today is Lisa Simpson’s wedding day!

While it’s not in the Gray Lady’s Wedding & Celebrations section (a.k.a. Gay Man’s Sports Section), the NYT shares with us the good news that back in a 1995 episode of The Simpsons, her wedding was forecast for August 1, 2010 at 1 pm in Springfield.

No word if Lisa wore one of those strapless bridal dresses that Cynica and I are tired of seeing.

Mazel tov, kids!


Some women can pull off strapless, some can’t. Chelsea? Not so much.

Breaking: Levi’s other ex insists he didn’t knock her up…

“Point blank, it’s not true at all. We haven’t hung out at all since 8th or 9th grade when we broke up. I don’t know where people are getting this. It’s not true at all. Levi is not the father of my baby.”

And Unnamed Baby Daddy is “really mad” that Levi’s getting all the loin cred.

@blogenfreude: It would have been more interesting if she’d gone topless or married Christina Hendricks and ended the ceremony with a long, sweaty make-out session on the altar. But Chelsea never listens to me.

::sigh:: I haven’t read this law, but the pictures of Hopey being a kind human being rekindled my hope for a nanosecond.

/hope time over

@JNOV: It makes some improvements, like requiring declination reports from USAs and granting greater authority for tribal cops, but some of the meat of what Dorgan introduced didn’t make the final cut, including a provision requiring federal employees to honor tribal subpoenas. There are also some questions about how the act will be interpreted in regards to the provision allowing tribes to request assistance from the feds to prosecute major crimes on the rez. There’s no guarantee the feds would do any better and there’s no explicit way to revoke that authority and let the tribes revert authority to the states.

I attended a CLE seminar about it in June. Former USA and RML crush Diane Humetewa was not particularly impressed with the bill.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Thank you for breaking it down for me. Yeah, I dunno. All these laws make me twitchy when I think about how sovereignty has been chipped away, demolished or outright ignored. The tribal subpoena thing is especially upsetting. ::getting worked up::
