When did you first start having these criminal convictions, sir?

Of course you didn't, silly. It's a secret.

Our Lords and Masters in DC, under the Unlimited Decidership of George
III "Of course, it's easier if I'm the dictator" jr, have, as you
know, a Plan. There are rumors that it involves pink helicopters
emitting a "somebody else's problem" field, but if I could actually
tell you, we would suddenly become Somebody Else's Problem, and
Somebody Else[TM] would therefore have to shoot all of us. %-[ With
very large bird shot, know what I'm sayin'? For our own good.

In other news, I hear that the Mercury probe has found that it's 451
beneficently Fahrenheit at the terminator today. Lovely weather for a
spot of Gilbert & Sullivan, what? Trial by Jury, anyone?
