And the Winner Is...

Our favorite *former* DC judge has earned the honor of the Washington Posts' "Idiot of the Year" award:

2007 Idiot of the Year: Former Judge Roy L. Pearson of Washington. This former administrative court judge exemplifies everything that the award stands for. Demonstrating worse judgment than a 15-year-old at Mardis Gras, he sued his neighborhood dry cleaner for $54 million over a pair of lost pants.

ZERO: Celebrity Recognition Can Take Time

Sunday July 8, 2007 - A ZERO award goes out to former NFL player and Fox Sports broadcaster Bill Maas who was arrested and charged with drug possession and weapons charges in Peoria, Illinois. Of course, all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

According to this media report in, police found numerous items in his Hummer:

"Police found a .22-caliber revolver, 5 grams of suspected marijuana, 6 grams of suspected cocaine and 28 pills of Ecstasy."

Maas and a passenger were arrested Friday by Illinois Police. But it apparently took some time before police knew who they had:

'"We didn't recognize him until about 5 p.m. this afternoon," Trooper Tony Halsey told the Journal Star of Peoria on Saturday.'

Ouch! How can there be celebrity justice when they don't know you're a celebrity?
