    Cameras are not allowed in the Federal Court with this county corruption trail is being held. So the local news station decided to act out the county transcripts with puppets. They're calling it, "The Puppet's Court".

    Canyons board rejects student vote, adopts Chargers as Draper mascot instead of Cougars

    Some parents and patrons emailed and called board members, saying they were uncomfortable with the idea that their daughters on the drill team and on the cheerleading squad would be called Cougars — a slang reference for .....

    "I can see people's concern with it, but I don't think it's valid," he said. "You can find anything offensive anymore."
    Political correctness ?

    Is this a high school for older divorcees? Or maybe they are worried about giving the impression their teenage daughters are going after 8 year olds. Too much!

    7-10 times having sex a week is enough to injure a pro athlete? hah! I bet that wouldn't even take down most urban planners.

    I don't watch pron, but I'll speak for a segment of American women, who just find certain things stuffed in other certain things, not so attractive. Not saying they're not necessary in some instances, but I can't see it as a pron turn-on...

    I thought stuffing certain things in other things was the whole point of pron?

    Seriously though - it's one thing to not use one in your personal life. Another thing to not use them when you're a professional with many many partners...

    Man doesn't notice he shot a nail into into his brain until the next day.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Woman says her 'big breasts' hindered her DUI test performance

    PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- A Port St. Lucie woman who said her big breasts hindered her ability to perform field sobriety tests was arrested on a DUI charge after starting to dance and disrobe, according to recently released records.

    During one of the tests, Maureen Raymond, 49, told a Martin County Sheriff's deputy she couldn't follow his instructions, saying "hell no not with these . . . not with her big boobies," an arrest affidavit states.

    When another deputy said they were going to perform roadside tasks, Raymond told the deputy he "needed to understand that she is big chested," saying big bosoms make balancing difficult. Asked if she had any injuries, Raymond said she had big breasts and whiplash.

    Bill O'Reilly: MSNBC doesn't deal in facts
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/...ts-113668.html

    ...I see a huge difference between Fox News' presentation and the presentation on our competition, CNN and MSNBC and Headline News. And the difference is basically more authenticity. You know on one network you're getting a very strong leftwing, partisan approach, which is fine, they can do what they want. And then the other, you're getting the traditional, trying to be middle of the road, but a culture that is much more liberal than traditional. And I think that as far as the facts are concerned, there's not much difference between CNN and Fox. And MSNBC doesn't really deal in facts, so we don't take them...
    Is this the twilight zone?

    A University of Illinois study finds that we're the second most corrupt region in the U.S., due to an oversized helping of election crimes, conflicts of interest and other dirty deeds.
