O.K, O.K., it's that part of the week when friends take a break from work (preferably between 4 and 7 p.m.), have a cocktail or two and solve the entire world's problems in less than three hours. I plan to attain this same feat and will do so in less than two hours.
In the interim, (asshole) Larry "da judge" Seidlin and Larry Korda, the two Florida judges involved in the Anna Nicole Smith hearings, have been reasssigned (you're kidding).

Korda, as you may recall, was recently busted for allegedly smoking a doobie in a park and "da judge".....well, you saw the pathetic idiot.
