The 9th ruling against the EO was one of the few bright spots since 3 weeks ago. Aghast at both the sheer unforced error nature of it and the willful ignorance of how it affects millions of folks. Hoping for more similar bright spots for his remaining couple of years. (Witness the Chaffetz town hall where folks in UT were Not. having. it.)

Spring break, 1975: I arrived in Aspen the day Claudine shot Spider. No, he was not skiing at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/10/17 4:44pm -Ken:

Claudine Longet shot Spider Sabich to death in the bathtub of their Aspen Colorado love nest.
  Fri. 2/10/17 4:44pm farmer pete:

That's smart. The bathtub will collect most of the blood.
Avatar    Fri. 2/10/17 4:44pm Sem Chumbo:

Spider Sabich died as a result of misdemeanor negligent homicide, i.e. "I didn't know the gun was loaded."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/10/17 4:45pm -Ken:

And considering the mess that Spider usually left behind, no jury was able to convict her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 4:46pm Uncle Michael:

By the time we got into town, it was a topic of conversation literally every single place one would go.

So yes, Deborah was indeed the Flying Lizards singer, "The Puerto Ricans" was actually one guy named Dennis Bovell, who produced Linton Kwesi's music. Nice catch, Adrian!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 5:00pm dale:

she was actually convicted of negligent homicide and given 30 days in jail. she got to pick the 30 days and just went in on weekends. she then went on vacation with her lawyer who was married at the time and she married him after his divorce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 5:03pm Carmichael:

Here you go, Dale: "Longet has never performed again after the criminal trial, and the Sabich family initiated civil proceedings to sue Longet. The case was eventually settled out of court for a large monetary settlement, with the proviso that Longet never tell or write about her story. They also demanded that Claudine withdraw from public circulation her recording of "Bang Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down."

Morning, all! At least I'm awake for part of the show... and for one of my fave topics, the Longet murder. I believe Sabich was not in the bath, but standing at the sink.
  Fri. 2/10/17 5:08pm P-90:

The false impression that Spider Sabich was actually shot while skiing may have begun with a Saturday Night Live sketch that appeared shortly after the murder.

Isn't that how Sonny Bono died? There's actually a touching little memorial to him in NW D.C.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 5:09pm Carmichael:

And ironically, the song's writer Sonny Bono died on the ski slopes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 5:09pm Parq:

This Longet thing may be one of those things where fiction has become remembered as fact. The first installment of SNL include a bit called the "Claudine Longet Downhill Invitational" in which stock footage of skiers beefing was melded with gunshot Foley cues to suggest that each contestant was being gunned down in mid-schuss. I strongly suspect that's why so many people "remember" that Spider departed this world in that manner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 5:09pm Uncle Michael:

But not from a gunshot wound.

Sorry P-90, you beat me to it.

Sonny wasn't shot. Just a bad wipeout. His wife (Mary, not Cher) took over his congressional seat.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/10/17 5:12pm Parq:

And Cher, making an unannounced appearance, took over the memorial, much to the consternation of Sonny's family.
Avatar Fri. 2/10/17 5:13pm Christine:

The Longet trial was quite weird... the jurors seemed to fall for her beauty and gentle manner and thus not think her capable of the crime she committed. I read some newspaper reports from the time, and there was this attitude that she was being treated unfairly because of being a celebrity - when her fame and money completely privileged her here.

Going from link to link that started with Sheila B. info, seconds ago I encountered a Greg Allman and Cher album cover (Allman and Woman, oy) on which someone added a cartoon word balloon so Greg's saying, "Fuck you, Sonny Bono."

It's not how over the top Cher was, so much as the fact that she made no mention of her intending to show up to anyone who might be interested, like, say, the family that had organized the memorial.
