I mentioned this last year but it bears repeating. When it gets to the brass tacks a concept from game theory called Prisoner’s Dilemma kicks in. The bottom line is he who squeals first generally gets the best deal. Henry is getting good advice from his lawyer Mary Olive Pierson IMHO.
Folks, rarely has a writer managed to weave so many angles of interest to the Slabbed Nation into one article as nicely as free-lance writer Jeremy Alford does for Gambit in his article Cash Cows. (H/T Editilla) There is only one place I know of that has woven players like Worley Catastrophe, Bermdoggle, Allan “Show me the Money” Kanner plus TheRiot and Magnum JD into a narrative and that of course is right here. Jeremy gets an A+.
Anyone else remember Will Hertes and his prank letter website? Those that do will understand why I almost spit my coffee this morning reading Sock’s last comment and how profoundly early internet innovators such as the gentleman behind the Will Hertez handle influenced me and thus what you see at Slabbed today, 12 years after Will’s hayday.
Folks, never in our short history has a topic resulted in such intense reader interest as our chronicling of the adventures of John Houghtaling aka Magnum J.D., who has claimed the mantle of being Wendell Gauthier’s hand picked successor (along with various and sundry other myths) as he reinvented himself into a political kingmaker of sorts. With that in mind and with an obligation to correctly report the events let’s review what we know about Magnum’s mid summer backyard sex party:
In October I received a tip that Magnum’s new neighbors on St Charles Ave were circulating a petition calling on him to move as he was hosting sex parties in between political fundraisers for folks like Gidget’s Billy Nungesser and Bobby Jindal. So the story went, the straw that broke the camel’s back was a wild sex party with Stormy Daniels. I immediately put out the word that we needed the arrest paperwork, which turned out to be the hardest pieces of paper we ever procured in terms of time and effort. I immediately contacted the neighbors that were listed as witnesses and was told to come to Muni court on 11-16 to hear all the gory details.
In the meantime, we did learn that Stormy Daniels was not involved with Magnum or his sex party but that he did have a former girlfriend from the sex industry named Stormy Schouff, who evidently was also Sidney Torres’ (of SDT trash fame) former girlfriend as well. I’m told that Stormy has since “gone legit” and since she was evidently not involved in the sex party in question she is not fair game here on Slabbed though the name explains the confusion in the local rumor mill.
