Get packing, Wesley

Wesley_snipes_blade_trinity_2 Wesley Snipes has been granted court permission to leave the United States in order to work on a couple of films.

As blogged about here, the action film star asked for the travel OK to head to London and then Bangkok in connection with movie roles.

Snipes, just in case you've forgotten, was convicted in March of three misdemeanor counts of failing to file returns on $13.5 million in earnings. He was sentenced to three years in federal prison, but has been free on bail while appealing the conviction.

Judge William Terrell Hodges signed off on the work travel request just before the Independence Day holiday, despite prosecution objections to the Thailand project's open-ended return date.

Isn't Thailand a country we can't extradite from? Isn't that why so many Viet Nam deserters ended up in Thailand? I say let him stay there. I pay my taxes, why shouldn't he?
