The Baltimore African-American, June 1, 1929. No Driving Miss Daisy headlines here at The Hope Chest, as befits a class joint what I are tryin’ to run here. Scandal continues over the jump, plus there’s a novel mutation to our fungible friend, the Unwritten Law.

Got that? The unwritten law has here somehow morphed from a defense for a crime committed in defense of marriage to criminal charge against the marital interloper. So, like, they’re going to charge the chauffeur with unwritten law? That’s a legal brief I’d like to read.

Or then again, this being the South, are they going to, um, implement the unwritten law against him, after a more informal hearing?
