The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Cue Cleavon Little with the revolver

A New York judge has been receiving threatening letters; the police have evaluated the letters and are leaning toward the theory that acting Supreme Court Justice Marylin Diamond actually sent the letters to herself.

Why would she do such a thing? Retired NYPD profiler Ray Pierce, asked to join the investigation, has observed that the letters always seem to show up right about the time security alerts are issued — or right about the time that Justice Diamond's authorization for bodyguards is scheduled for expiration.

Justice Jacqueline Silbermann, who serves alongside Diamond, calls the profiler's contention preposterous. A handwriting analysis failed to connect Diamond to the letters; in the meantime, Diamond's additional security has been cancelled.

Why do I think this is destined to be a Lifetime Original Movie?

Gawd, that scene in "Blazing Saddles" nearly killed me...still does, whenever I catch it. Truly one of the Top 10 comedies ever made. RIP, Cleavon...

Best line: "...but I shoot with THIS hand..."
