Is Anyone Sicker Than Phil Spector?
Let's have a belated hooray for the conviction of human chia pet Phil Spector and his Yahoo Serious hairdo. Can you believe a couple of jurors last time around actually thought Lana Clarkson had killed herself, even though a procession of other women came forth to describe the way Phil had ritualistically rammed guns in their faces? At least this time justice has finally been served, and the weird megalomania and sadism of Phil's wall of UNsound behavior has come a-crumbling down before any other innocent gals have to try da-doo-run-running for their lives.
Willie Wonka meets Charles Manson on a bad hair day, Spector has been running amok of the law for years and at last will become someone's bitch and hopefully hair project. I'd say give him the chair, except he already has such a problem with the frizzies!
