We thought that after the allegations of threats against puppies and the invocation of the image of a "urine-stained couch," the Brooke Astor trial couldn't get any uglier. Alas: Today, prosecutor Elizabeth Loewy opened her argument against Astor's son Anthony Marshall with a horrifying, and yet strangely compelling, allegation: Marshall "literary pulled Ms. Astor out of the arms of her nurse," said Loewy, the Post reports. Old-lady wrassling! That's a worse crime than kitten juggling. [NYP]
