Pat Robertson recommends nuking the State Dept.
CNN | Submitted by: poorjon
"Television evangelist and Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson's suggestion that a nuclear device should be used to wipe out the State Department was 'despicable,' department spokesman Richard Boucher said Thursday... A senior State Department official, who did not want to be identified, said the department has expressed its displeasure to Robertson. Robertson made the comments during a series of interviews on his 700 Club television show with journalist Joel Mowbray, author of a new book, Dangerous Diplomacy: How the State Department Endangers America's Security... 'I read your book,' Robertson said. 'When you get through, you say, "If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer," and you say, "We've got to blow that thing up." I mean, is it as bad as you say?' Robertson said... In a June interview with Mowbray on the 700 Club, Robertson made similar remarks. 'Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up like Newt Gingrich wants to do,' he said."

Schwarzenegger already fucking over California
Scoop | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
Just as his worst critics feared, Governor-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger is planning to settle the state's pending lawsuits against several price-gouging power companies. "For three years, California has been engaged in a costly legal battle against dozens of energy companies it said ripped off the state by purposely withholding much-needed electricity from consumers, creating an artificial shortage while boosting the companies' profits. Federal regulators ordered electricity refunds for California totalling about $3.3 billion, but Davis said the state deserves at least $9 billion and 'not a penny less.' ... Schwarzeneggeer aides said the lawsuits are deterring energy companies from building power plants in California, which could lead to another energy crisis in 2006, and the legal wrangling alone is costing the state millions of dollars. 'It's time to settle and move on,' a top aide to Schwarzenegger said. 'We don't want to inherit litigation.'"

Villagers lynch alleged penis snatcher
Boston Globe | Submitted by: Bill
"A 28-year-old man accused of stealing a man's penis through sorcery was beaten to death in the West African country of Gambia Thursday, police said. A police spokesman told Reuters that Baba Jallow was lynched by about 10 people in the town of Serekunda, about 9 miles from the capital, Banjul. Reports of penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, with purported victims claiming that alleged sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear in order to extort cash in the promise of a cure... Seven alleged penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs in Ghana in 1997."

Ex-FBI agent accused of arranging mob hit
Gadsden Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Boston's FBI scandal was already disturbing enough: agents taking bribes, shrugging off gangsters' crimes, and shielding informants from police. Now, it has turned almost unthinkable: A retired agent is charged with aiding a mob hit on a reputable businessman... Rico helped the agency make some of its first Mafia cases in New England in the 1960s - with the help of violent informants. When he retired in 1975, he did not entirely abandon his old collaborators: He went to work instead for at a mob-connected company that ran jai alai events. A new company head there, Roger Wheeler, wanted to root out the mob influence. In their charge against Rico, Oklahoma prosecutors say he fed information that helped his old mob sources find and kill Wheeler in 1981."

Mexican special forces become narcoterrorists
Toronto Star | Submitted by: Lydia
"Members of an elite Mexican army unit have deserted and formed a drug gang, using their military training to launch a violent battle for control of Nuevo Laredo on the U.S. border, Mexico's top anti-drug prosecutor said in an interview. The war for Nuevo Laredo is unlike other recent drug conflicts - it's a turf war involving most of Mexico's major cartels in broad alliances not seen in a decade. It has the Mexican army fighting an organized unit of former comrades and it has cost American lives... about 31 of the estimated 350 members of the Special Air Mobile Force Group, posted to the state deserted and joined the drug turf war. 'They have high-powered weapons, training and intelligence capabilities,' Landa Herrera said of the Zetas, whose name comes from the radio code word designating a police commander. 'They have even tapped our radio communications. They listen in on us.'"

Nixon: Rumsfeld was a dove
Washington Post | Submitted by: Bonny Fide
"A new generation of American antiwar critics may decry Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld's moves in Iraq. But there was a time when other critics -- such as President Richard M. Nixon and then-national security adviser Henry A. Kissinger -- saw him as an incorrigible peacenik, an annoying White House dove... Rumsfeld, then a former congressman working on the White House domestic policy staff, was 'becoming a troublesome anti-war advocate.'"

Vatican complains about unfair media coverage
Washington Post | Submitted by: Jonny Plasma
"The media has exaggerated a sex scandal that has shaken the U.S. Roman Catholic Church and unfairly tainted thousands of priests with overzealous coverage, Pope John Paul II's top aide said Friday. 'The scandals in the United States received disproportionate attention from the media,' Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano told Reuters in an interview... Boston was the epicenter of a scandal that swept the United States last year after it was discovered that several American dioceses had transferred priests known to have abused children from parish to parish without alerting the public... Last month the Archdiocese of Boston agreed to pay up to $85 million to settle lawsuits filed by hundreds of people who say they were sexually abused by clergy."

Karmic victory for child molestation victim
Tampa Tribune | Submitted by: VoodooDoll55
"Convicted child molester Kevin Kinder, inadvertently placed in a jail holding area with a man he abused more than a decade ago, was beaten unconscious Thursday when the man recognized him and exacted revenge. Kinder was in Tampa for a court hearing before returning to state prison. He was put in a large room with about 65 other inmates at the Orient Road Jail. One of them was Jason Edward Flores, being held on a probation violation. Flores, now 22, was 11 when Kinder abused him and three other boys. 'It's such a fluke that these two ended up in the same place at the same time,' said Flores' mother, Judy Coronett. 'But think about how [my son] feels. He was finally able to confront Kinder and fight back after 11 years. I think it's damn therapeutic.' Flores' attorney, Ricky Escobar of Tampa, confirmed Thursday that his client jumped on Kinder and punched him repeatedly, knocking out a tooth and leaving Kinder unconscious."

God strikes down 20 pregnant cows
ABC News | Submitted by: optional
"Florida, the lightning capital of the nation, lived up to its reputation when 20 prized, pregnant cows were killed by a bolt that hit an oak tree they were huddled under at a north Florida farm, police said. Two others were euthanized. 'The hole in the tree was the size of a watermelon,' said Rose Mary Cameron of Clover Leaf Farm. 'The ones that were under the tree did not move. They just fell over each other. They were all tangled up... It's sad to see something like this.. I mean 22 in one shot,' she told the Ocala Star Banner."

Controversial haunted house shut down by city
Fox News | Submitted by: jimbo
"Organizers of a haunted house that includes scenes of same-sex kissing and a whipping dominatrix said they're just trying to promote adult fun. But community officials say the haunted house is so adult, it can't open unless it gets an adult entertainment permit from the city... One scene shows two women touching each other's arms and legs and then kissing on the shoulders and neck. The scene ends with the simulated cutting of a man's genitals. Another shows people shackled to a wall. A dominatrix whips a man attached to a leash... city ordinance states only people 18 or older are permitted on the premises where live performers depict certain sexual activities, including sadomasochism."

Declan McCullagh is not an ISP
News.com | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The FBI is convinced that I'm an Internet service provider. It's no joke. A letter the FBI sent on Sept. 19 ordered me to 'preserve all records and other evidence' relating to my interviews of Adrian Lamo, the so-called homeless hacker, who's facing two criminal charges related to an alleged intrusion into The New York Times' computers... FBI Supervisory Special Agent Howard Leadbetter II used the two-page letter to inform me that under Section 2703(f) of the Electronic Communication Transactional Records Act, I must 'preserve these items for a period of 90 days' in anticipation of a subpoena... An apology is too much to ask for. An unequivocal statement from the FBI and Ashcroft that this will not happen again and no subpoenas will be forthcoming -- even if proper procedures are followed -- is not."

Flying pervcams coming soon
Deseret News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Complete with a 24-inch, collapsible wingspan, the plane can be piloted by a computer with a GPS system, thanks to a computer board developed at BYU. 'The board lets any operator, regardless of experience, launch the plane, fly it to a predesignated point and land it for later use,' said Tim McLain, an associate professor of mechanical engineering... The Air Force commissioned the school's MAGICC Lab to build the tiny spy plane about six months ago."
