Another Mandarin Moment

The Mandarin spots this on today’s Chicago Tribune website (it may be corrected as you read this; full story here).

Regarding The Case Against Drew Peterson is the abstract (and your Mandarin quotes exactly):

The prosecution says Peterson’s alleged victim will “testify from beyond the grave.” Peterson’s lawyer says that’s unconstitutional.

As well as difficult, one would think. Her testimony may be somewhat muted, being a few feet underground.

About The Czar of Muscovy

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia by upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
