Rough day for those with triskaidekaphobia!

Hi there,

Maybe because of the date or just maybe the moon is full, but the Internet was awash with crazy stories this week that were tied (at least tangentially) to divorce.

First, yet another celebrity behaving badly and another sycophant behaving worse.  What surprised me about this was the involvement of the divorce attorney as a testifying witness!  Whatever happened to attorney-client privilege?

Then there was the case of that weird couple who named their kids after Nazis.  Apparently that was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of their poor parenting.

And finally there was the wife who discovered her husband had been cheating on her, via Facebook of course.  We’ve blogged about this sort of thing before.

Separately, and on a totally serious note, there was another terrific post by Taxgirl that actually makes sense of the tax code mess created by DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and gay marriages. Way to go Kelly!

Best,

Nancy
