And is their German leader called Herr Kutz?

You Couldn't Make It Up Dept.

From the Beeb:
Sixteen Amish women and men charged with beard- and haircutting attacks against fellow Amish have plead [sic] not guilty in an Ohio court.

The six women and 10 men are charged with hate crimes motivated by religious differences, conspiracy and assault.

The suspects are also accused of trying to destroy evidence, including shears, a bag of hair and a disposable camera.

Prosecutors say the attacks were part of a feud directed by a breakaway Amish bishop ...
... Samuel Mullet.
Oh yeah!


  1. Good to see you back, I was concerned your fall had done more damage than you indicated.

  2. Ken, thanks for the kind thoughts. I am fine, but the last couple of weeks have been pretty difficult, work-wise. Bottom-up reorganisation of my department, mass redundancies, pay cuts and the constant thought of - who's next? And worse - friends start to turn against each other as the numbers count down. It's been grim and I haven't felt I had much to say on the blog.

    I'm going to do a post on it all, but only if I can find a way of doing it without pouring a bucket of manure over my head.

  3. Of the irony. You're right, can't make that stuff up.
