Astor Trial Now Literally a Battle Over Poop


Remember how, yesterday, the trial of Anthony Marshall, the heir to the Astor fortune accused of ripping off his centenarian mother, was all about celebrity faux pas? Well, today it was all about dachshund droppings, specifically the kind that sit in the middle of the “parquet upon which President Reagan and U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan once stepped.” And whose fault it was that it was there (other than the dachshunds themselves, of course). [NYP]
