Puppet. Attorney. Drink. We Love Guy Smiley!

Nothing but good news for Deborah Mardenfeld. A victim of the World Trade Center Attacks who spent over one year in the hospital, Ms. Mardenfeld was "awarded 8.6 million by the September 11 Victims Compensation Fund," as "reported by the New York Law Journal on Thursday." (AP via The Oregonian)

My cat Bernie here says that he really would like to someday meet her attorney: "Guy Smiley, the lawyer who represented her for free, said the award was 'hard money for her.'"

For those of you who are considering knocking a few back tonight, have a Guy Smiley for me:
