A conservate scion's messy divorce

Conservative activist and billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife is getting divorced, at it's getting very ugly. There's a lot of stuff involved. Here's my favorite example:
"Defendant has and continues to unlawfully hold in his possession six pairs of asparagus tongs manufactured by Mappin & Webb, Birmingham, 1926 weighing 10 ounces total," reads one of dozens of paragraphs. "The last-known location for these items was at 'Vallamont,' 132 Pheasant Circle, Ligonier, Pa. 15658. The estimated cost for these items is $1,800."
(HT: Sullivan) Maybe when I'm a billionaire, I can get some $300 asparagus tongs. Of course there's adultery, assault, and dognapping, too. But I don't think those things can compare to the asparagus tongs. I didn't even know there was such a thing as asparagus tongs.
