No Photoshop gallery of possible "wigless Spector" renditions?
Standards are slipping.
Legendary record producer and paragon of sanity Phil Spector is apparently Twittering from his prison cell, having been permitted to keep a laptop, but not his wig. The Telegraph excitedly burbles that the 69-year-old has been kvetching like a good 'un about his new life, earned by fatally shooting the actress Lana Clarkson in …
I wonder if any of your readers have noticed the astonishing resemblence between recently-jailed record producer Phil Spector, and notorious cartoon villain Robert "Sideshow Bob" Terwilliger? Could they by any chance be related?

ENA B. PEPPERPOT.
1. The Los Angeles County Jail is run by Los Angeles County, not by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
2. In any case, FBS gives its number of inmates at about 204 thousand.
2. And given the interesting things that have happened when prison inmates have had insufficiently supervised access to computers, I am not surprised that the proposed model for email communications for the folks at Club Fed does not involve laptops in the cell: http://www.bop.gov/inmate_programs/trulincs_faq.jsp
Shudder to Think was a band in the DC/Baltimore area years ago. One of the best band names I can recall.
And yes, here in the United States of Mewling Petulance, we simply canNOT infringe on the privileges of people just because they have taken the lives of innocents. As it stands, the only amendment to the Bill of Rights that still stands is the fourth (we're not required to house members of the military), and that's only because we spend all our money paying for housing for people who don't work (folks on the dole, teachers, civil servants, etc)
Paris, because she would shudder if she ever thought.
To be fair to Ms Bee, her original post is wholly and completely accurate. Going to the Torygraph website the story in question at: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/celebritynews/5427201/Phil-Spector-complains-about-prison-confiscating-his-wig-on-Twitter.html
Says, "America's Federal Bureau of Prisons announced earlier this year that its estimated 2,450,000 inmates will all have access to email by 2011."
The fact that the FBP own website at: http://www.bop.gov/locations/weekly_report.jsp
Says, "Total Federal Inmates: 205,461".
Since the total number of inmates in US jails (federal, state, local) is 2,450,000; I can't help thinking that the number referred to in the Torygraph article must actually be total US prison population.
Thanks Anonymous Coward at 1519, but I recommend you collect your coat on the way out.
well who can say if he is the real one or not !
But ignoring that minor point he's extremely funny whoever it is.......
another 2 minor quotes from him
I always confuse people when I write letters. I sign off with my initials and people seem to think they have missed something.
Downer 1: Jailed for 19 years, Downer 2: They confiscate my wig, Downer 3: I have a boil on my ass and it hurts when I sit down. Just great.
