Above, you’ll find the cover of Batman Annual #1, published not so long ago in 2012. “Featuring The Torment Of Mr. Freeze!” the cover proclaims, and after last week’s snowpacalypse, we can relate. Sure, our neighbors to the North can chuckle about our inability in the Carolinas to cope with frozen inclement weather. But we’re not used to such things. Cut us some slack!

Our friend Kevin Underhill of the Lowering The Bar blog has been chronicling the tale of Kayla Finley, a South Carolina citizen who was arrested recently for allegedly failing to return her rented copy of Monster in Law to her local video store . The interesting point: The arrest occurred in 2014, the alleged offense occurred nine years before in 2005. (Cue your favorite VHS joke.). Well, Kevin is continuing to chronicle the saga of this ordeal, so please see his posts here, here, and here for more information. And remember, be kind and rewin.

If you practice in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, you might be interested in this bit of news from the local bar:

As of the term beginning March 3, 2014, the weekly clean up calendar for Mecklenburg County District Civil Court 6330 will move from 10:30 am on Mondays to 2 pm on Fridays.  The clean up calendar will be conducted in courtroom 6330 by the Trial Court Administrator’s Office, without a judge presiding.

There’s more news from Charlotte. According to The Charlotte Observer, Charlotte may be getting Google Fiber. Way, way back in March of 2010, we wrote about Greenville, South Carolina’s attempt to woo Google to bring Google Fiber to that city. To revisit that story, and see the amazing photographs of the accompanying publicity stunt, please see here and here.

We must confess that we have been negligent of late in failing to link the Drug and Device Law blog’s Steve McConnell’s wonderful post about The Beatles and the Sixth Circuit. Just go to that post now and enjoy it; it is full of Beatles references and song titles. He even managed to throw “Helter Skelter” in there!

Rest in peace, Devo guitarist Bob Casale.
