The right monkey

"Russia Trumps Ecocide at the Petroleum Broadcasting System".

"Peter W. Smith, GOP operative who sought Clinton's emails from Russian hackers, committed suicide, records show" (I LOVE THE CAPS, ARE THEY FROM THE TRIBUNE STYLE BOOK?):
"Mystery shrouded how and where he had died, but the lead reporter on the stories said on a podcast he had no reason to believe the death was the result of foul play and that Smith likely had died of natural causes.
However, the Chicago Tribune obtained a Minnesota state death record filed in Olmsted County saying Smith committed suicide in a hotel near the Mayo Clinic at 1:17 p.m. on Sunday, May 14. He was found with a bag over his head with a source of helium attached. A medical examiner's report gives the same account, without specifying the time, and a report from Rochester police further details his suicide.

In the note recovered by police, Smith apologized to authorities and said that "NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER" was involved in his death. He wrote that he was taking his own life because of a "RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017" and timing related "TO LIFE INSURANCE OF $5 MILLION EXPIRING.""

"'But Sir, It’s an American Ship.' - Haaretz" (Lang) and the comment by LondonBob.

"Man claims he ran down someone to save a woman’s life. Now he faces manslaughter charge".  You start to read this and you say 'nope', but as you read further . . . .

"“I’m bewildered at the American court system. Surely it matters that the right monkey is suing me.”"
