See the smoking, blonde hottie on the left? That's Carrie McCandless. The guy behind her is her lawyer. Care to guess what she needs a lawyer for?

If you guessed "Sex with a student," you're right!

In late October Carrie chaperoned an overnight field trip to the YMCA of the Rockies retreat in Estes Park, where she gave alcohol to and made out with a 17 year old student. Carrie says they were outside smoking when the boy kissed her and she pushed him away, saying it wouldn't be appropriate. The boy, on the other hand, has been pumping his fist in the air and shouting "Yes! Who's Da Man?" and says they also made out in the parking lot of a Sam's Club.

I reported on all this earlier, but now, the Prosecution in the case has offered her a plea deal. I'm betting it's a slap on the wrist and a Maxim cover photo shoot.

Yesterday, I used the spectacular failure of a psychic to make a joke about John Edward running for President. I linked to John Edwards' campaign website. On his homepage, there is a picture of the Edwards family. Good looking kids, huh. At least we know his dick works.

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Gallagher for the joke.

Psychic Sylvia Browne said in February 2003 that Shawn Hornbeck was dead, and would be found 20 miles from his home. Shawn was found, alive, on January 12 only a few miles from his home. Browne said the "killer" was hispanic and drove a car with fins, popular in the 50s & 60s. The real abductor appears to be a white male, Michael J. Devlin, who drives a white pick up. Here's James Randi's comments on these "psychics." Here's a link to CNN's ongoing coverage.

This is why I won't support John Edward as he "Crosses Over" to run for President. Psychics shouldn't be trusted in our highest office.

Merck & Co, an international pharmaceutical company, is the maker of Gardasil, the first cervical cancer vaccine to come to market, is launching a fundraising drive for cervical cancer called Make the Commitment. On their website, you can get a free bracelet kit, and be entered in a drawing for a necklace kt. For each entry, Merck will donate $1 for cervical cancer research.

Isn't that a bit like a fox contributing money to avian flu researcher?

Chris Mulhearn has managed to get a Linux variant to run on the PSP. Right now, there's not much functionality. The only way one can use the program is to plug a TTY machine into the headphone serial port, and only the serial port is supported in the kernel. The screen doesn't work, the speakers don't work and the controllers don't work. They why in the FSM's name did he do it?

So, Senator Hillary Clinton is sticking her toe in the Presidential waters. Good for her. Her schtick doesn't play well outside of major metro areas, so it will be interesting to see how she's received.

With Barack Obama in the race, the PC crowd will have a tough time deciding who to vote for: the minority or the white person. I hope they give time to let me get some popcorn before the hysterics start.
