ICYMI, there are reports that singer Miley Cyrus is under “criminal investigation” in Mexico for desecration of the Mexican flag. If charged and convicted, Cyrus faces a “fine of up to $1,300 or 36 hours in jail.”
Twitter users, however, think they’ve figured out a way to put Miley’s poor judgment to good use — #BringBackOurMarine:
It will never happen, of course, but there’s potentially some good news to report. Tahmooressi’s lawyer, Philip Dunn, wrote an op-ed for FoxNews.com yesterday where he suggested Tahmooressi will be home soon. The opener:

Young lawyers are taught to manage expectations. “Under-promise and over-deliver” is the rule – but there are exceptions. When the evidence is coming out so strongly in his favor, an experienced lawyer can take the gamble and say what he really thinks.
I have been providing legal and spiritual support to Andrew and his mom, Jill, since May. I assisted Jill in hiring Fernando Benitez, Andrew’s Mexican lawyer, and have worked closely with him during the last three court hearings.
