After Leslie's election the Edinburgh moderates, determined to oust Leslie, took the affair to the general assembly of the Church of Scotland, its highest forum, which decided in May 1805 by the narrow majority of 96 to 84 that the affair be dropped and Leslie be left undeposed from his mathematics chair.
Leslie, who owned a townhouse in Edinburgh with fine library and beautiful paintings, purchased in addition an estate at Coates which is east of Largo, set back from the Fife coast but with a fine view over the Firth of Forth.

 Beach Blanket Breakup by Robert Lanzone
Anyway, I was on the rebound from my divorce and Leslie caught my eye at the party with her deep bronze skin, sort of like the color of an ancient Hindu deity statue.
Her dark tan was maintained in a tanning salon bed during the off-season and I found her laughter index went up in direct proportion to the social stratum of the company we kept.
Granted I was lonely after the breakup of my marriage and Leslie was great between the sheets, but she possessed the same social climbing attitude my ex-wife had, which nearly led me to ruin.

 CNN.com - Martha Stewart: I cheated no one - Jul 17, 2004
During the sentencing Robert Morvillo, Stewart's lead trial attorney, asked that if Stewart eventually does go to prison, she be sent to a federal facility in Danbury, Conn. Judge Cedarbaum said she would refer the matter to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
The Stewart case is one of a number of criminal indictments that prosecutors have brought against corporate executives in recent years.
As for Stewart, "the judge probably felt that, given the loss of status and the impact on her business, that this punishment was fair and just," said Stanley Twardy Jr., a former Connecticut U.S. attorney.

 D.K. Stewart Profile, October 2004
Stewart and his cohorts were smart enough to know that if their live performances had won them such ardent fans, any recording they created should attempt to duplicate that same feel rather than mask it with an over-thought, overdubbed studio sheen.
In Stewart's opinion, "That was kind of our start as professional, hard-working musicians, and we were discovering that this was work, you had to be disciplined and patient, and just play through this stuff and let the soloist go." For Stewart, playing with these living legends cemented his musical destiny.
Stewart stayed with the band for two years, touring up and down the West coast, until he finally grew disenchanted with the changing musical direction of the group and left in 1979.

 Robert Christgau: Against Interpretation: Rod Stewart: Stardust . . . The Great American Songbook Vol. III
In a time when rockers are finally middle-aged enough to fulfill the dire prophecy that they'd be better off with their parents' music, Stewart once again does it right.
Most important, Rod Stewart doesn't "interpret" these songs--doesn't "illuminate the nuances of the Gershwins, Rodgers and Hart or Hoagy Carmichael." Not the emotional nuances, always tricky business, nor the musical nuances.
From Dylan to Hendrix to "Maggie May" to Elton John, Stewart was long a connoisseur of this mainstream, and one might argue that his songbooks are a reproach to its current desiccation.

Robert Stack, 84, a flinty film actor who became an icon of law-and-order television programs such as "The Untouchables" and "Unsolved Mysteries," was found dead Wednesday at his Los Angeles-area home.
He showed dramatic promise as the young and very blond Nazi sympathizer in "The Mortal Storm" (1940) with James Stewart and comic flair as the Polish flier who woos married Carole Lombard in "To Be or Not to Be" (1942).
Similarly to other rugged 1950s leading men such as Leslie Nielsen and Lloyd Bridges who later lampooned their screen images, Stack appeared in such films as "Airplane!" (1980) and "Caddyshack II" (1988).

 Hanging (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.virginia.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
As a form of judicial execution in England, Hanging is thought to date from the Saxon period, circa AD 400.
Records of the names of British hangmen begin with Thomas de Warblynton in the 1360s; complete Records extend from the 1500s to the last hangmen, Robert Leslie Stewart and Harry Allen, who conducted the last British executions in 1964.
Early methods of Hanging simply involved a hangman's noose on a rope placed around the victim's neck, with the loose end thrown over or tied to a tree branch; the hangman then drew up the criminal, who slowly strangled.
