10/21/2005: What a letdown....
Unlike the Tom DeLay arrest warrant, which was the most beautiful thing I'd seen yesterday, I have to confess great disappointment with DeLay's mug shot, which looks like a portrait he might have had taken for a campaign brochure (or maybe for a print ad for his exterminator business):
The mug shot was brought to us courtesy of our pals at The Smoking Gun, which also has a gallery of celebrity mug shots. Among which are my two favorites:
The Ozzy Osbourne mugshot--taken in Shelby County's "glamour slammer" in Memphis (Oz had been caught "staggeringly drunk" on Beale Street) while wearing a St. Louis Blues shirt. How can I not love this one?
The Bill Gates mugshot. A modern tech icon.
