Scooter to the Slammer, Davids to Divorce

Scooter to the Slammer

June 5, 2007 · I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was sentenced Tuesday to 30 months in prison for obstruction of justice and perjury in the investigation into the leak of a CIA operation officer's identity.

Libby is the highest-ranking White House official convicted in a government scandal since the Iran-Contra affair, although he has maintained his innocence...

Does anyone remember how long the reporter who protected his source stayed in jail?
Perhaps Scooter & Paris could share a "special needs" cell?

Davids to Divorce

"Curb Your Enthusiasm creator and star Larry David and his wife, eco-activist Laurie David, have split after 14 years of marriage, a rep for the couple confirms..."

How long until the supermarket checkout mags ask, "Did Laurie David leave her husband for Sheryl Crow?"
