"An unemployed Italian man from Turin has been charged with fraud, harassment and damage to property after allegedly orchestrating at least 500 car crashes in a doomed effort to meet young women...

Valley of Meth
Syracuse Post-Standard | Submitted by: Hollywood Ned Spencer
"One farmer chased down and confronted a trespasser who explained his interstate trip as 'grocery shopping in Ithaca.' When pressed, he produced his proof: a Twix candy bar and a soda. Colton tells the story of a woman who stood watch outside a barn while three men stole anhydrous ammonia. The men fled; she got left behind. When Colton processed her, he asked for a driver's license. She wasn't allowed to have one, she answered. Their lookout, it turns out, was blind."

Record industry wants royalties for used CDs
mp3newswire | Submitted by: george_lazenby
"I have come to the conclusion that the music industry must be ruled by organized crime because everything they do is a shakedown. One of the most prominent examples is for the industry to distort the notion of you buy a CD by claiming that all this time you have been only renting it. That is a lie, but one the lobbyists and lawyers for the industry will chant in unison as they enter the courts and the legislature to contort the fair use laws to their fiscal advantage."
