Hey, Kool-Aid!!!

Here is a fun story about Sheila “Hey Kool-Aid” Lockhart. A racehorse owner and serenity hornet in the UK:

How top racing figure rammed her friend’s car in fury over gossip

As the owner of a renowned racehorse named Go Ballistic, Sheila Lockhart might be expected to have an explosive temper.

So after she rammed her Audi into a Mercedes owned by jockey Warren Marston – sending it smashing through his front door as he slept, and prompting him to jump naked from his bed to shout abuse at her down the stairs – it would be easy to assume the worst.

Back to the Toole Shed

In an update on Michael Toole, an AA and former federal judge who got caught taking bribes and evading his taxes (but in a rigorously honest way). His attorney is wanting to seal character reference letters written by his fellow AAs, from public view. Sadly, the judge agreed.

I personally don’t care to see the actual letters, as I know they contain the standard nonsense about how he has changed his life around over to AA, how serene he is now, and how AA God™ has magically rid him of the character defects that caused him to lie and cheat his way around in life. It’s the standard dogma, no doubt.

I would, however, like to see the names of those who gave the references. They are no doubt a colorful bunch of serenity seekers who found their way into AA in much the same way the good judge did – but now they somehow believe they are absolved from those things because they practice a new religion. It’s like a prisoner who has suddenly found Jesus, getting a character reference from his cellmate. It doesn’t mean a lot.
