True fact: Breathed named his newspaper after the one in New Orleans.

Wait, so you're saying I should take unsolicited legal advice from anonymous online commenters?

That guy is (was) an Assistant U.S. Attorney, not a district attorney.

Which makes it more hilarious because AUSAs are supposed to be the saltiest prosecutors of them all.

the owner of a landfill that is the target of a federal probe got so fed up with Mencken1951's comments on NOLA.com articles about him that he hired the famous forensic linguist James Fitzgerald to unmask the troll. Fitzgerald compared the comments to a legal brief by then-Assistant U.S. Attorney Sal Perricone, and found striking similarities, including the use of obscure words such as "dubiety" and "redoubt."

Imagine what James Fitzgerald would find reading Fark comments.

Hmm, this sounds like a popcorn-worthy event.

I just hope there's more to substantiate "accusations that Heebe is bankrolling Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard's defense against federal payroll fraud charges to buy Broussard's silence in the River Birch probe" than a comment like "I guess Heebe will be writing more checks this weekend."

I suspect some of his comments might have hit a raw nerve with the naughty landfill owner. Truth is always a defense to defamation.
