What a pleasant-looking young man. Well, he was before a Daytona Beach father walked in and found him molesting the guy's 11 year-old boy. Then things got kind of ugly. Oh, no, he's not dead; he just wishes he was....

Oddly, Pooty-Poot now thinks it'd be a pretty good idea of those folks over in Ukraine put together a cease-fire agreement. He didn't care so much before, but being that pretty much everybody's mad at him, it couldn't hurt. Besides,...

In the wake of revelations that the FBI has launched a criminal investigation into Cover Oregon, the state Department of Administrative Services has quietly rewritten its policy on legal representation; the state (meaning you and I) can now pay for...
