“Give ’em dirty needles and let ’em die. I don’t understand why we think it’s important to keep [junkies] alive.”

—TV’s Judge Judy Sheindlin on a book-tour stop in Brisbane, Australia, The Courier-Mail, November 16, 1999. And (inset) the follow-up cover of everybody’s favorite trashy tabloid. (Check out www.judgejudy.com for her “clarification” and submit your appeal to 888.800.JUDY.)
