Patterico's Pontifications


A New Reader: James Sabatino

Filed under: Dog Trainer,General — Patterico @ 7:50 am

We’ve picked up some new readers in recent weeks. One of them is apparently James Sabatino, the prison inmate who conned Chuck Philips into writing a story based in part on forged documents.

Yup. My website — in particular a comment by reader cfbleachers — is cited in a Sabatino court document filed yesterday. Read the whole thing here. Here is one relevant excerpt:


I re-emphasize that I can’t take credit for the quoted passage, which was written by a commenter.

Welcome to all new readers, whether you are in prison or elsewhere!


  1. Between this guy, Senor and Senorita Horse Whisperer, and Cyrus the Virus, Patterico’s blog seems to have some kind of gravitational pull for teh krazy. Invest in tinfoil. Now. Neigh.

  2. I feel like I’m in prison. But if I can break enough of these rocks I’ll get to declare independence for at least one day – Friday.

    Then it’s back to work for Saturday and Sunday. ;-( sigh…

  5. “Gasoline supplies unexpectedly grew by a considerable amount, and demand continued to slide”

    OK you supply and demand apologists.

    I guess we can expect a drop in gasoline prices.

    What do you think?

  8. Good, now that should end your attempt at a thread hijack.

  9. Do you have any cigarettes, Patterico? If you do, I’ll see you out in the yard.

  10. Either I’m having trouble following Mr. Sabatino’s line of thought or his Motion has some decidedly circular reasoning.

    In any event, Mr. Sabatino is wise to read Not only would it keep him up-to-date on the LA Times, he’ll also be prepared when his motion is appealed to the 11th Circuit and they assign it to AnnTM.

  12. Is it correct that all typewriters in prison libraries have the shift key removed so the prisoners can only type with capital letters?

  13. NO.
