From the Mondays Off! Legal Bureau

An article appears in today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch detailing how lawyers representing Rams pro-bowl defensive end Leonard Little are petitioning the Missouri Supreme Court to dismiss Little's felony drunk driving charge.

First, a very little background:

Six years ago, Little was driving drunk in downtown St. Louis and killed some kid's mother. Somehow, he avoided any prison time. And the worst part? Little was arrested for driving drunk AGAIN this past April. That's all you need to know.

Second, a little foreground:

We at Mondays Off! are based in St. Louis, and therefore spend a great deal of time watching the Rams. This quality football viewing is marred every time Leonard Little makes one of his remarkable athletic plays, as we are unable to dismiss the thoughts that somewhere nearby lives a teenager who lives without a mom due to his recklessness. Now well past the hopes that the Rams would take a stand and cut Little, we at Mondays Off! can certainly hold onto our expectation that the Missouri Supreme Court won't allow Little to again shed the grasp of justice as though it were a rookie right tackle. Justices, we beg you--embarrass Mr. Little's attorneys with a summary dismissal of their petition, and spare the St. Louis fans the malaise of another season cheering for a murderer.
