Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig makes a sweeping indictment of the relationship between special interest groups, their lobbyists, and Capitol Hill politicians. “Members, staffers and bureaucrats increasingly have a common business model in their head as they serve in Washington,” says Lessig. “The business model is focused on their life after government – life as lobbyists.”

Lucknow, June 30: Three Muslim clerics in a seminary beaten up by three women for allegedly not conducting their “talaq” (divorce) proceedings in accordance with Shariat (Islamic) laws, police said.

Mumtaz alias Hina, Nishat Fatima and Arshi barged into the Madrassa Sultan-e-Madari in the Wazirganj area and assaulted the clerics – Mohd Afzar Zaidi, Sayed Musa Rizvi and Mohd Raza Sajid.

“The women alleged that the clerics conducted their divorce, keeping them in the dark. We have initiated an enquiry,” police spokesman Anand Srivastava told reporters here.

Meanwhile, the three clerics have registered a police complaint against the three women for assaulting them and damaging the property of the seminary.

Is Mumia Abu-Jamal being made an example of?

A recent decision by the United States supreme court sent Mumia Abu-Jamals case back down to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, where a three-judge panel will then reconsider its decision to uphold the lifting of the prominent African-American journalists death penalty. This is only the latest in a long string of examples of how courts at all levels have made special exceptions to precedent in order to try and kill this particular prisoner.
