U.S. actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi are seeking refugee status in Canada, telling an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing in Vancouver that they fear for their lives in the U.S.

The Quaids told the hearing Friday that eight of their close friends had been killed in recent years and they now felt endangered themselves.

Evi Quaid said friends such as actors David Carradine and Heath Ledger were "murdered" under mysterious circumstances and she's worried something will happen to her husband.

"We feel our lives are in danger," she said.

"Randy has known eight close friends murdered in odd, strange manners ... We feel that we're next."

...

The Quaids are facing felony burglary charges and misdemeanour counts in the U.S. for allegedly moving back into and vandalizing a home they once owned in Santa Barbara, Calif. Both are wanted on $500,000 bench warrants issued by judge Donna Geck in Santa Barbara.

From the article:

The Quaids are facing felony burglary charges and misdemeanour counts in the U.S. for allegedly moving back into and vandalizing a home they once owned in Santa Barbara, Calif. Both are wanted on $500,000 bench warrants issued by judge Donna Geck in Santa Barbara.

So that's the real issue..it's not about Heath Ledger or David Carradine, it about going to that great northern halfway house where they can avoid responsibility for their actions.   

Too bad they couldn't take Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Snookie with them too, just to name a few.

Tell me about it. I just don't know how I...
Huh ?
Oh, right, we're talking about Quaid.


Canada can keep Quaid, but under the condition that Shania Twain stays in the states.

Well, take a look at how other stars have done the same:  Lindsey Lohan,  Britney Spears, ect...they have power, money, and no discipline or principles.

They've been taught everything but responsibility to themselves, and for their actions.

And then you have the ones like shoplifter Wynona Ryder who got away with plain and simple murder..if it were you or I (or anyone here at the board) we'd be in jail. 

Sometimes it seems the more money and power people have, the more they seem to see themselves as above the law or able to change the reality of the law to suit their needs.  The law was always fairer to those who had money...

Oboy....Shatner in South Africa.  Just don't blame America when the natives and the locals start speaking in halting sentences or open a local Priceline.   BounceGiggle
