It is… unfair for the universe to tempt me with stories like this.

Just the title should tell you why. Meet Melvin Reynolds:

Disgraced Democratic congressman arrested in Zimbabwe after allegedly making 100 porno films and taking 2,000 naked pictures in hotels

I heard about the bare bones of this story this morning…

…but I didn’t know about the pornos. I knew that Reynolds had been convicted of statutory rape, got forced out of Congress, served time for the sex offenses and bank fraud, and got his sentence commuted by Bill Clinton – but I didn’t know about the pornos. And it’s the pornos that make this entire thing far too rococo for real life.  This is something that you’d expect to see in a television series, for heaven’s sake.

Reality.  ‘Tis treacherous, it is.
