Tommy Hilfiger reportedly attacked Axl Rose in a New York nightclub.
Tommy Hilfiger really showed his "Appetite for Destruction" yesterday when he pummeled Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose in a dispute over a VIP table at Rosario Dawson's birthday party, sources said.
Hey, I would have fought for Rosario Dawson too.

Most observers seemed to think that fashion designer Hilfiger was pretty lucky Rose did not choose to retaliate.

Meanwhile, LuboŇ° has a great video here of a Czech political dispute.

UPDATE: Kevin Drum points out that at the above political dispute, there was no, repeat, no, defenestration involved.
A meeting of disgruntled dentists? In Prague? At least no one got tossed out a window. Personally, I'm looking forward to a Rich Lowry - Al Franken cage match.

String-Emil

In honour of Turboglacier and his roofing issues, I would like to share my displeasure with the landlord's boiler. It lasted over winter, so I guess I can't whinge that much, but died a couple of weeks ago. So this guy came and fixed stuff, and within 24 hours the hot water worked but not the heating. So he came back and fixed it again and now 48 hours later the heating works but not the hot water.

I would really, really, really like to please have both.
