    I had to check if Munchhausen was still in the DSM 5, I thought it would be lobbed in with another personality disorder by now, but it is still in.

    My pop psychology makes me think he is more borderline.
    yeah but he did injure himself to propagate the hoax so theres that

      Do you mean to tell me there arenít MAGA supporters cruising downtown Chicago in subzero temperatures on the off-chance they can lynch an obscure gay black actor?

      Hope they throw the book at Smollett for this hoax. If it hadnít been so implausible it might have stated a race riot.

            It has nothing to do with race, or being black or white.

            It has to do with being wealthy.

            Smollett willingly forfeited his $100,000 bond in a backroom plea deal to drop the charges. For most people, it smells of bribery. You can't afford to drop the $100K? The trial proceeds.

            You may not have notice before, Harry, but wealthy people seldom go to jail in the U.S. unless they have bad lawyers.

              Hi RJ,

              Yes, indeed. American Justice: the best that money can buy.

              Regards,

              Simon

                That was my point.

                I donít want to hear anything more about how white people are overprivileged and above the law when a black actor gets sixteen felony charges tossed out of court.

                Like you said, itís all down to wealth, class and connections.

                  actually it was only 10K. but I agree. its wealth and priveledge. But its also corruption in the Chicago DA office. something more going on here-the DA recused herself and Michelle Obama also contacted her and asked if the FBI could be the ones to investigate. something is fishy.

                  But this is total bullshit. and sad. another example of our skewed justice system and failure of our political leaders.

                    Abby - the discrepancy came about because Smollett's bond was $100,000, but one is only required to relinquish 10% to get out on bail. A few early reports this morning stated that he gave up the whole kit and caboodle, but you're right; this doesn't appear to be the case--it was mere chump change: 10K. But really, what's a misplaced decimal point or two when you're a member of the smart set?
