I have frequently posted about the joke called "rehab." The unending story of Lindsay Lohan is a rehab lesson unto itself, see my posts here
, among numerous others.
"Rehab" is the defense bar's version of "sentencing." Some judges buy it because they think the jails are overstuffed; some because they genuinely think the defendant could benefit; and many because they refuse to see reality, or prefer not to.
The latest rehab joke comes from Toronto's version of Hollywood silliness, Mayor Rob Ford. Like many in Hollywood, the Mayor likes his crack cocaine, and would like to convince his constituents that rehab is the answer. And it is an answer, of sorts.
Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he is in rehab and enjoying it..."Rehab is amazing," Ford told The Toronto Sun....He compared it to the Washington Redskins camp he went to as a boy.
Would readers please take up a collection so I can go to rehab, too?
