Man flushes two lovers down toilet
Sydney Morning Herald | Submitted by: darcy
"A man who pleaded guilty to murdering his two male lovers, disembowelling them and flushing their organs down the toilet yesterday told a Sydney court he was "not a violent man". Softly spoken, and articulate, at one point he told the NSW Supreme Court he did not make a good criminal." But there's a fabulous picture of him in a tight Gotcha shirt. Sexy!

Say goodbye to your Miranda rights
Los Angeles Times | Submitted by: Meerkat
A High Court challenge to Miranda, supported by the Bush administration, may result in Americans no longer having the right to remain silent. It would mean that police officers could "coerce" confessions out of people, as long as they weren't used in court. uh, right.

Killer of up to 23 women to go free
WXYZ-TV 7 Detroit | Submitted by: Reverend Bustanut
"In exchange for immunity, Watts gave police enough details to prove he killed 13 women, including the woman from Grosse Pointe Farms, but he wasn't given immunity for any other Michigan crime." He probably killed lots of other women as well. And now he is set to be let go in 2006, and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Most US-Canada bordercams broken
Seattle Insider | Submitted by: Kreepy Monster
"All cameras: Controls not working 95 percent of the time... It's another warm day and the cameras are once again not responding... Infrared Down, Infrared Bad... Inability to track subjects between cameras... no means of recording or exporting images." How did such a shitty system get installed in the first place? Graft! "This $200 million contract comes with a sensitive political connection. The vice president of government contracts for IMC is a woman named Rebecca Reyes. Her father is Texas Congressman Silvester Reyes." And why is this person still a Congressman, again?

Blood Money
Miami New Times | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"South Florida Blood Banks, the West Palm Beach based nonprofit charity that supplied the blood to Jackson Memorial, has become a significant force in the regional blood trade recently, at least partially by employing corporate thievery, unseemly tactics to secure donors, and questionable accounting practices that seem more fit for Wall Street than Mercy Street."

Pee: major ingredient in Japanese skin products
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"The legions of Japanese busily rubbing skincare products over their faces may be a wee bit embarrassed to learn of a vital component in the creams and lotions they're covering themselves with. No intention to take the piss out of anyone, but urea, a compound extracted from urine, is of irreplaceable value for Japan's beauty products, according to Shukan Shincho."

Henry
Slate | Submitted by: Bud, A.P. Palled
"There is a tendency, some of it paranoid and disreputable, for the citizens of other countries and cultures to regard President Bush's "war on terror" as opportunist and even as contrived. I myself don't take any stock in such propaganda. But can Congress and the media be expected to swallow the appointment of a proven coverup artist, a discredited historian, a busted liar, and a man who is wanted in many jurisdictions for the vilest of offenses? The shame of this, and the open contempt for the families of our victims, ought to be the cause of a storm of protest."

online.ie | Submitted by: KC

The coming Indian boy surplus
Pravda | Submitted by: anonymous
"India is on the verge of a sociological time bomb waiting to explode, due to the large number of genetically manipulated births. As in China, everyone wants a boy and in a population which already exceeds one thousand million, the practice could create a dangerous imbalance, with many more males than females in the near future."

Israelis kill annoying pre-dawn drummer
Washington Post | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Raed Faour and Jihad Natour, lifelong friends, were walking through the dark, narrow streets and alleys of the New Asker refugee camp in Nablus early today, banging their tambourine-like drums and singing a song to wake up the Muslim faithful and announce the approaching sunrise... [Israelis] immediately started shooting."

Saudi Arabia earning spot on USA's shitlist
Asia Times | Submitted by: Bin Tossinoff
"Poor Prince Bandar bin Sultan... his wife is accused by powerful senators and media of supporting terrorism; his country is charged with duplicity in the war against al-Qaeda; and his family's rule is threatened by increasingly loud calls for its overthrow. Worst of all, many of the same people who treated him as a hero under Reagan... now say that his kingdom should be treated as a sworn enemy of the US."

ZDNet UK | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold

The government is to publish files on reported UFO sightings on the Internet later this week as part of a shake-up of its laws on freedom of information."

Self-immolation on the rise
Independent Online | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold
Hell of a way to go: "A recent study by the Medical Research Council has revealed that self-immolation, or setting yourself on fire, has accounted for 9.9 percent of suicides at the Gale Street mortuary in Durban. A suicide expert, Professor Lourens Schlebusch, said those who attempted suicide often looked for the cheapest method."

Calendar Trend we could do without
Wire Services | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold
"The idea of older men and women stripping for a calendar would have seemed far-fetched, if not ludicrous, not long ago. The new calendars, which show more wrinkles than curves, are the antithesis of glossy calendars with professional models, and that's precisely why they've become such a hit, said Bob Morton, chairman of the Naturist Education Foundation, a group that promotes nudism."

The sado-masochisitic weapons inspector
Washington Post | Submitted by: shoreman
This is far too funny: "An Internet search of open Web sites conducted by The Washington Post found that [Iraqi Weapons Inspector Harvey] McGeorge is the co-founder and past president of Black Rose, a Washington-area pansexual S&M group, and the former chairman of the board of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. He is also a founding officer of the Leather Leadership Conference Inc., which "produces training sessions for current and potential leaders of the sadomasochism/leather/fetish community," according to its Web site. Several Web sites describe McGeorge's training seminars, which involve various acts conducted with knives and ropes."

Zsa Zsa in a coma (it's serious)
KABC-TV 7 Los Angeles | Submitted by: Soylent
"Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor was hospitalized and in a coma Thursday after a car she was riding in struck a light pole on Sunset Boulevard, a family spokesman said... The cause of the accident was unknown, said Sgt. Bruce Thomas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department. Gabor was apparently not wearing a seat belt, Thomas said." Gabors do not wear seat belts. If you suggest otherwise you get slapped.
