Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Burlusconi, who has suffered so many corruption charges that he got the Italian parliament to whip up a special crime bill that will get him off the hook, is apparently an expert on court systems in other solar systems. He told news reporters, "I'm the universal record-holder for the number of trials in the entire history of man โ€” and also of other creatures who live on other planets." It's good to know that Burlusconi's not human-centric when it comes to thinking about his criminal career. [FP Passport]
