Madonna may get to adopt Mercy anyway
Three appeals judges have been persuaded by Madonna to let her adopt Malawian orphan Mercy James and -- OH MY GOD does anyone still care about this? Please, let us know so we can stop writing about her and her inferiority complex.
Anyway, for now we'll say that the U.K.'s Sun reports that two judges have submitted reports okaying the sale, uh, adoption, and a third is "in complete unison with them." A ruling is supposedly being announced on Sunday.
Apparently the judges feel that a rule requiring that Madge live in the country for a period of 18 months prior to adopting the little girl is out of date. Because how else will the country get all her money in the form of orphanages and kickbacks to government officials?
