Which crime gets you more time?

Two brotherly news items caught my eye this morning. One guy stabbed his brother to death during a fight over his pickup truck. Another guy helped his brother pretend to be dead. So, guess which guy got the harsher sentence?

Decatur man sentenced to four years in prison in brother's stabbing

Man Gets 12 years For Helping to Fake Brother's Death


Let this be a lesson to all the fakers of the world.

And speaking of fakers, the couple who lied about biting into a human finger in a fast-food meal are going to prison for a long long time. What kind of world do we live in where people get 10 or more years for pretending when they could actually kill someone and get three or four?

how many years should we lock up Meg “Sally” Ryan for faking that orgasm at the deli in New York? That old lady sitting in the booth nearby nearly had a heart attack.

I'm telling you, Chanel should get time for putting Reese Witherspoon in that nasty dress at the Globe awards, calling it vintage, when the exact same frock was worn by KIRSTEN DUNST back in 2003 to some Golden Globes after-parties! Now that's a crime!!

I'm disturbed by the brother-slaying theme of this column.
