Love on the rocks

A couple of amusing tidbits for this Saturday morning:

First, from America, we have the story that jazz musician Gregory Royal filed a legal brief comprised of rap lyrics, in a child custody dispute.

I do not, however, recommend calling the police to a domestic violence dispute when the house is full of cocaine and other drug-smoking paraphernalia. This is what the hapless Yasmin did, according to this story on The Magistrate's Blog. Naturally, the police took more interest in the drugs than the alleged assault...
