    30,000 dollars will buy you a nice little exemption from subpoenas

    I've just heard about a story I missed somehow about Senator Harry Reid(D) from Nevada and Feld Entertainment and the Sigfried and Roy tiger mauling tape. It's a very dry bit of corruption scandal that keeps getting ignored partly for that reason, I guess. The interesting part is that 5 people or so at the USDA are getting to watch the tape of it that everyone has been waiting to see on the internet since it happened. Only part of the story is really out, and so far the scandal hasn't caused much outrage but I will pass it on when I get it. I don't want to say much about it just based on what I've heard. more to come...

    Update: Here is Senator Reid's official explanation of his involvement in the scandal. He doesn't seem to view it as a scandal though. He has a lot of things working for him on this issue, not the least of which is sympathy for Roy Horn in the public. Nevada is just not going to start out mad about an attempt to subpoena this video by the USDA. Huh. Fair enough, I guess. But that's not quite the issue here from what I gather. still more...

    10:22 Update Some published (local) news about the case here, and here.

    And this quote is funny, but probably even funnier than you think ;)

    Senator Harry Reid tells The Associated Press that quote, "We are going to do everything we can to protect Siegfried and Roy."

    We are living for free;
    The air is for free,
    The clouds are for free.
    Hills and dales are for free;
    Rain and mud are for free;
    The outside of cars,
    The entrance to movie houses,
    The store windows are for free;
    It is not the same as bread and cheese,
    But salt water is for free;
    Freedom will cost you your life,
    But slavery is for free;
    We are living for free,
    For free.
