Lykos, Meet Streisand

The following was posted on Murray Newman’s blog yesterday, but after Murray was double-plus-unhired from the office he took it down. I’m reconstructing it as nearly as I can here (with my own flourish), not because I think Murray has no backbone, nor because it’s particularly good (it was created in collaboration among Murray’s commenters), nor because it’s particularly nice (it trends toward the nasty), but rather because information wants to be free:

On the 12 Days of Christmas, Pat Lykos gave to the Harris County Assistant DAs:

12 jurors chosen witout a preemptive strike used by the state;
11 free “crooked cop passes” from Mr. Police Integrity himself……Clint Greenwood;
10 internal memos re: unprofessionalism of reading toxic, antiregime blogs at work;
9 new ashtrays for the 6th floor smoking lounge;
8 days of Lykos Hell every single week;
7 insulted yarmulka-wearing witnesses; 
6 emails from my family wanting an explanation for why I won’t be visiting as planned for New Years;
5 new pantsuits;
4 free tickets for a reception on January 1, 2009 that I’m forced to attend;
3 washed out judges;
2 Leitner balls; and
A little troll from a spider hole….

I wouldn’t even have linked to it if Murray hadn’t been redundantly fired for publishing it. But  if you want to ensure that some piece of information gets disseminated as widely as possible, try to suppress it.

    In the end, it is entirely written by commenters only. Thank you all for keeping me laughing all morning.
