Mississippi State Rep. tried to kill civil rights ed law because it's 'Accusatory Of One Group'

By: Wednesday December 29, 2010 8:36 pm

Did I mention that John Moore (R-Brandon) is a Republican? Silly me. I know the meme out there is that the GOP is trying to ignore the social conservatives when it comes to gays (see GOProud chasing FRC, and Porno Pete from CPAC). Even if that stretch is true, it’s not much of a big [...]

Defense of the day: man shoots wife in the head, says it was mistake during fantasy sex play

By: Wednesday December 29, 2010 7:51 am

This is a novel, preposterous defense #fail. Maybe I’m missing something here, but who would want to engage in sex play with a gun to the head?
