    Yep that was a bad tourism idea Mr Mayor

    who sought permission to stage mock hangings for tourists withdrew on Monday his application to erect gallows after he said controversy surrounding the plan painted the city in a negative light.

    Only recently became aware?

    SD man's lawsuit says circumcision 'robbed' him

    Sioux Falls, S.D. (AP) -- A South Dakota prison inmate is suing the hospital where he was circumcised as a newborn, saying he only recently became aware that he'd undergone the procedure and that it robbed him of his sexual prowess.

    Dean Cochrun, 28, is asking for $1,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. He also asks in the lawsuit that his foreskin be restored "in the hopes I could feel whole again," ....

    HEADLINE: Dead, frozen cows may be blown up

    the Forest Service is looking at three options:
    let them decompose,
    burn down the cabin, or
    blow up the cabin with explosives.
    Just leaving them to thaw out and decompose could cause problems
    .

    Drawing scavengers may not be a big concern? I know in California we blow up dead whales that wash ashore sometimes - the idea being the scavengers clean it all up pretty quickly before decomposing causes too much of an issue.
    Children in the back seat can cause accidents - and vice versa.

    They blew one up last year (or was it the year before?), that washed up on a beach near where I was born and raised (Ft. Bragg CA).

    Man sues BMW after motorcycle seat allegedly causes 2-year erection

    Viagra and Cialis apparently have nothing on a BMW motorcycle seat. According to a lawsuit filed last week in San Francisco Superior Court, the seat left its driver with a two-year erection.

    Henry Wolf filed suit against BMW North America and Corbin-Pacific, Inc. He claimed in the lawsuit that the “ridged seat” of his 1993 BMW motorcycle caused him mental and emotional anguish after it left him with a severe case of priapism, aka a long-lasting erection.
