Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
From time to time I hear from my colleagues abroad about some of LH's critters. This morning I received an email from the library near Bad Penny's home -- the Rutledge Library, founded by her quite literate and literary great-great-great grandfather, Admiral Lord Alexander Rutledge, RN, OBE, VC. He's the one who fought at Waterloo, Trafalgar, and New Orleans, as well as in numerous lesser-known engagements. At one time there were Rumors about he and Queen Victoria, but they were all for naught as she seems to have been close with a certain Mr. Brown from Scotland.
Anyway, it seems that Victoria Rutledge was "taken up" on charges of driving without a license and without a stitch on. Speeding down the road toward Merkin-On-Peawater she seems to have splashed considerable mud and water on two local constables, who gave chase. Several empty bottles were jettisoned from the Rutledge automobile but since they were not found the contents aren't known; her blood-alcohol level was "quite high" my sources say. Veronica is to appear before the Magistrate Friday afternoon; her Lamborghini has, in the meantime, been impounded.
