The case of the missing marijuana

BAKER A man and woman were arrested on various drug related charges, among others, after an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy found methamphetamine making materials and marijuana which later vanished in their house.

This led the deputy to a Lighthouse Church Road residence, where 30 year old Michael Justin Hughes and 31 year old Katherine Brooke Cox lived. The deputy immediately found the burned remnants of pseudoephedrine blister packages and peeled battery casings in a backyard fire p tommy hilfiger it.

The two allowed the deputy to search their house. He found rifles and a sawed off shotgun, which Hughes was not supposed to have as he’d been convicted of a felony in a previous case. The deputy also found ammunition at various places around the house.

He then found marijuana in a plastic bag and a pipe on the nightstand next to the bed. A second bag of marijuan tommy hilfiger a turned up in a cabinet in the living room. He put the evidence on the kitchen table as he continued his search.

“I attempted to place handcuffs on the defendant when he conducted a bowel movement and fecal matter traveled down his leg and onto the kitchen floor,” the deputy wrote.

The deputy escorted the man to the bathroom so he could clean himself up, and when he returned the evidence on the kitchen table had vanished. Both Hughes and Cox denied doing anything with it.

tommy hilfiger The Case of the Missing Handba

The Case of the Missing Handbag

Margaret Thatcher and Hina Rabbani Khar may have made them famous; but Indian women politicians are not fans.

You’ve got to hand it to Meryl Streep. After bringing the glacial fashion editor based on Anna Wintour to life in The Devil Wears Prada, she’s now appearing on our screens as the redoubtable Mrs Thatcher, the Iron Lady, who is as far removed from Wintour’s Ice Queen as anyone could possibly be.

And yet, such is Streep’s ability to morph herself into any life form that rave reviews have already starting pouring in for her portrayal of the former British Prime Minister.

What’s truly uncanny, though, is how much Meryl actually looks like Margaret in the film. There are the tweedy twin sets, the blouses with a prim bow at the neck, the sturdy shoes, the impossibly bouffant hair. An tommy hilfiger d then, of course, there’s the handbag.

Aha, the handbag. The accessory that was such a part of Thatcher’s look that it became the stuff of legend. Some speculated that the Prime Minister always carried a handbag in an effort to evoke a subliminal association with the Queen. Elizabeth II is never seen in public without a handbag dangling off her arm even though she famously carries no money (she has been known to refresh her lipstick at the dinner table though, so maybe the bag is for an emergency stash of make up). And there seemed to be something to this theory as Thatcher started becoming more and more Queen like as her reign wore on, even using the royal ‘we’ to refer to herself (as in “We have just become a grandmother”).

But, more pertinently, the handbag perennially hanging off her arm ready to be wielded as an offensive weapon if the need ever arose became something of a metaphor for Thatcher’s bullying style of politics. And those ministers and partymen who became victims of her iron fist in an iron glove were described as having being ‘handbagged’, as in clouted about the head by her well structured Asprey bag.

Such was the power of that image that even now, many decades after the event, we find it hard to picture Margaret Thatcher without her trademark handbag, swinging ominously by her side. It’s as much a part of her image as the poshed up vowels, the helmet like hair, and the slash of red lipstick. It signaled a certain purposefulness; it showed everyone that she meant business.

Yes, a handbag can say a lot simply by hanging off someone’s arm and sometimes it says just as much by being conspicuously absent.

Look around you in our own political sphere. What do you see? I’ll tell you what you don’t: expensive handbags on the arms of our women politicians (with the exception of Mayawati, but more on her later). Sonia Gandhi, the most powerful women politician in India by a long way, is never seen in public carrying a handbag. Sometimes when she attends AICC meetings or Congress plenary sessions, she carries a mannish briefcase bulging with papers and folders. But otherwise, her arms stay empty, swinging silently by her side, no tommy hilfiger matter where she is: speaking at an election rally, taking part in a political function, making an appearance at a wedding, or even attending Par tommy hilfiger liament.

Or take Jayalalitha, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu. She is always impeccably turned out like the nicely brought up, convent school girl that she is. Perfectly groomed hair, flawless complexion, beautifully draped saris (sometimes with capes to match) but no handbag. In Delhi, chief minister Sheila Dikshit shows a similar disdain for arm candy of any sort. And then, there’s the fiery Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of Paschim Bongo, who also refuses to carry a handbag (which is just as well, because she is the most likely to use it to clobber some hapless soul senseless when in one of her famous fits of temper).

All these ladies have very differing styles of politicking. But the one thing that unites them is that the handbag is always missing. It’s almost as if they see it as an emblem of frivolity which would work against their being taken seriously in the public sphere.

Given this background, it’s perhaps easy to understand why we reacted with such outrage when the Pakistan foreign minister, Hina Rabbani Khar, came to visit us with an enormous Birkin bringing up the rear. The bag took on a life of its own, occupying pride of place in every photo op and effortlessly eclipsing poor old SM Krishna. And before you could say He tommy hilfiger rms, a Birkin backlash was in full force. Khar’s judgement carrying an uber expensive handbag on a state visit when she was representing a less than prosperous Pakistan was called into question. And she herself came perilously close to being dismissed as a piece of fluff as a consequence, with her handbag doubling up as a badge of shame.

But strangely enough, the only Indian woman politician who makes a fetish of carrying a handbag has escaped that fate. Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati is seldom seen without a designer bag hanging off her arm. In fact, one of her many statues had to be redone because the artist had omitted to graft a handbag on to her arm.
