As January 2007 comes to an end, so also does any excuse I might have for recapping the best stories of 2006. I'll be doing that this week and am finishing up the review process. It is very difficult to make some of these choices, and so in two or three categories I thought I would experiment with putting these to a vote. Assuming this polling software works successfully, which is a big assumption, then the most popular choices will be announced by the end of the week. If it doesn't work, I'll pick the ones I like and pretend they were the most popular choices. If that system's good enough for the Electoral College, it's good enough for me.
The first category is Best Legal Argument of 2006. This category honors creative and preferably ridiculous arguments that are especially clever, especially stupid, or somewhere in between.
The nominees are (links go to the original post):
Woman Argues She Can Use HOV/Carpool Lane Because She Is Pregnant
Accused Bigamist: "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas"
Man Believes Bad Checks May Have Been Written by His Other Personalities
Motion to Continue Arkansas Trial Because Deer Season is Comin' Up
Motion for Extension of Time Because My Dog Had Puppies
The poll buttons are in the sidebar to the right.
