“Do you want a career that’s mostly music or do you hope to keep going with acting? Or both?”
A nation continues to wait for final word on the Supreme Court’s Big Four cases this term — voting rights, affirmative action, DOMA, and Proposition 8 — but the justices’ closest decision arrived first on Monday, in a 5-4 ruling on Salinas v. Texas in which the conservative members of the Court and Anthony Kennedy determined that if you remain silent before police read your Miranda rights, that silence can and will be held against you. Here’s what that means.
Basically, if you’re ever in any trouble with police (no, we don’t condone breaking laws) and want to keep your mouth shut, you will need to announce that you’re invoking your Fifth Amendment right instead of, you know, just keeping your mouth shut. “Petitioner’s Fifth Amendment claim fails because he did not expressly invoke the privilege against self-incrimination in response to the officer’s question,” reads the opinion from Justice Samuel Alito, which Justice Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts backed. Justices Thomas and Scalia had a concurring opinion while the remaining four Supremes dissented.
Oh, calm down, Gleeks. You should know that even coppers love them some Chris Colfer.
The out Glee star and author made the rounds in London earlier this week and participated in a signing for his two books, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell and Struck by Lightning.
Showing that a wicked sense of humor is among his many talents, he shared this cheeky staged photo on Instagram, writing, “Things got a little rough today at my UK book signing…Hope I can still meet the Queen with a record.”
What’s the charge, officers? Since when is being too cute a crime?

This is right on so many levels. I’m so glad he could say it.
My little sister is back from China! Time to glomp and generally bug the shit out of her. >:)
Had you expected ‘Struck By Lightning’ would get such a warm welcome from fans or critics?
