#5 Ace of Spades says it best: "You can't even make this shit up. It's not a love triangle. It's a love Pentagon."

#6 Well, it's less bloody than a trip to the basement of the Lubyanka and a guard with a Tokarev.

#7 If some jerk sends 30,000 pages of e-mail to me.
1) they are classified as spam by me and go directly to the spam folder without being read.
2) I drop that e-mail account and make a new one.
3) If it doesn't quit you get a court order against them.

#8 Begging the fact that this is all beautiful theater background before all the lemmings in D.C. jump off the fiscal cliff.

#10 Alternate theory: the Kelley twins are manipulative, fame-seeking drama queens who are going to turn many people's lives into toxic sludge, hopefully including their own.

#11 ...problem is that unlike the German culture of blind obedience, the real power of the US military lies with its middle grade officers and NCOs. Try to do what the others have done in using the military against its population will result in fracturing the services. You really don't want the competent middle grades against you, in or out of active duty.

#12 e men wrote letters in September to the District of Columbia Superior Court in support of the twin sister, Natalie Khawam, as she sought more visitation rights with her son, court papers showed.

So she doesn't have custody? Unusual. I thought we had Movie, now it looks like a miniseries with potential spin-offs. I see something like Dallas meets the Desert Rats.

#13 The sister apparently initiated a spiral of widening email attacks, increasingly more expansive and unbelievable claims about the father, etc. etc.
