R. Kelly and Therapist

from NET news (formerly BET):

Accused statutory rapist and child pornographer R. Kelly has gained a victory in his court battle. The singer appeared Monday before a judge who ruled that a child therapist can’t testify at his trial. Kelly’s accused of videotaping himself in sex acts with an under-age girl who’s now 20 and says she’s not the girl in the video. Dr. Sharon Cooper planned to testify that such denial from past victims of child sexual abuse is common, but Judge Vincent Gaughan sided with defense lawyers. They argued that no precedent has been set letting a witness cast doubt on another witness in that way. Kelly’s next court appearance is scheduled for March 12, followed by a May 9 trial, which has been delayed for five years.

2 Notes from all over:

The Last Rose of Summer
(1)

Tis the last rose of summer

Left blooming alone;

All her lovely companions

Are faded and gone;

No flower of her kindred,

No rose-bud is nigh,

to reflect back her blushes,

Or give sigh for sigh.

(2)

I'll not leave thee, thou lone one!

To pine on the stem;

Since the lovely are sleeping,

Go, sleep thou with them.

thus kindly I scatter

Thy leaves o'er the bed

Where thy mates of the garden

Lie scentless and dead.
(3)

Soon may I follow,

When friendships decay,

And from Love's shining circle

The gems drop away.

When true hearts lie withered,

And fond ones are flown,

O! who would inhabit

This bleak world alone?
