Order in the (Family) Court

The kerfuffle this week over D.C. Superior Court Juge John Bayly citing Wonkette or, to be more precise (which Bayly certainly wasn't) his citing of a Wonk'd sighting of Duke rape case defendant Collin Finnerty led some to snicker that the judge seemed to not even know what a blog was. While his [sic]-riddled assertions in the court about the Wonkette item could have offered easy evidence of that, something else seems to argue against Bayly being all confused when it comes to this newfangled web surfin' business: he's the father of the Daily Candy D.C. editor. Hmmm....guess we know where she got her spot-on sense of the city she covers, and you know, um, getting things right.

Armed with the information about this father-daughter connection, I'm a little surprised that Bayly's ruling in the Finnerty case didn't come under the heading "All Rise (For Great Bargains)!" or didn't include the words, "natch," "gal," or "yummy," or close with him imploring those in attendance to go check out the 40-percent off sale at the Supreme Court gift shop down the street, because "You've totes earned it after sitting through this trial, darling."

Ha ha ha. I used to be in a book club with his daughter, and he performed the marriage ceremony of a friend a few months ago - she and I were both in attendance.

DC gets smaller by the day.
