Scooters that stay where you put them

As an addendum to Kevin’s appraisal of the Scooter Libby commutation, I heard this short story on NPR’s All Things Considered yesterday: Quiz Show Draws US Attorney. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, the man who actually prosecuted Scooter Libby and had him convicted, will be appearing on the NPR news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! He will be answering questions for the “Not My Job” segment, on the subject of… scooters.

My favorite part? They gave him a present for being on the show, (which they don’t normally do.) A child’s kick scooter, engraved with the words, “To Patrick Fitzgerald, USA: This one will stay where you put it.”

Listen to the segment, because there are several other amusing anecdotes. Or even better, try to catch the full show this afternoon.

    I heard the ATC story on the way home yesterday but was traveling today and unable to hear the WWDTM episode. The ATC story was very funny, though. If conservatives are aware of that, I bet they’re burning Fitzgerald in effigy right now.

    Which reminds me that I’ve always been amused by how Fitzgerald was appointed by Bush but is now apparently dead to them. Gotta blame somebody, eh, since the President and all those associated with him are angels sent from heaven, so clearly they did nothing wrong. USAs are pretty low on the totem pole, just like the people who got convicted of the Abu Ghraib stuff.
