Calling Samuel L. Jackson

Almost snakes on a plane.

In my continuing fascination with small animal smuggling, I saw this article about a 24 year old man stopped at the airport in Sydney, Australia trying to board a plan carrying 40 lizards and four snakes. At least he had the decency to put them in his luggage rather than his pants, as is often the case.

And, for those wonder, yes I will get to the Byrd decision. Keep in mind, though, that the thing has been repealed. So, the decision is largely academic.

While the decision may be largely academic, there are millions of dollars in Byrd funds that have yet to be distributed pending the outcome of this litigation!

Given the size of the pot of gold, the parties are speculating that there will be a petition for cert.
