Teens go on tard hunt
Austin American-Statesman | Submitted by: Travis Scobie
"With their video camera rolling, five teenagers beat, kicked and laughed at a special education student as he waited at a bus stop, police said. Then, they said, the attackers "laughed hysterically" as they sped away. The planning and carrying out of the Dec. 19 assault, all captured on a 30-minute videotape, led to the arrest of five Anderson High School students this week. Police said the attackers, two of whom are juveniles, taped themselves searching the school's campus for a victim and later going to a nearby Capital Metro bus stop, where they found the 16-year-old student."

Better than a bulletproof vest
Guardian | Submitted by: Dirty Sammy
"We had previously seized this building, so we were concerned that explosives would be waiting for us when we came back. Acting according to customary practice in such cases, we took a Palestinian who lived nearby and had him comb the site. He opened all the doors and cabinets, and didn't find anything... We shook his hand and said thanks." God bless the Israeli Army.

Barred for Life
Miami New Times | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"Thousands of Florida's felons who've served their sentences and probation must follow the same arduous trail if they wish to possess basic civil rights in Florida once again. Few will succeed. Perennial legislation and two ongoing lawsuits have as yet been unsuccessful in busting the bureaucracy and mindset that keep the restoration process so complex. Gov. Jeb Bush, who with a word could clear the path, has said he does not intend to do so. After layoffs during the summer of 2001, only one person was working on all those files, an employee who was routinely pulled off to work warrants."

San Francisco Chronicle | Submitted by: kade
But after only a week, Yun Nit discovered the job's underside: While selling only one bottle of expensive French wine, for which she earned $2, she had been groped, fondled and propositioned for sex three times. One man offered $50, about a month's salary for a Cambodian factory worker... Yun Nit has vowed to refuse the advances. "I don't want to bring a bad name to my province." As if being a beer girl was not doing that already.

Kim Jong Il collects Daffy Duck, country starves
MSNBC | Submitted by: Boat6float
A long article about the atrocities in Kim Jong Il's regime, including interesting aerial photos of their concentration camps. Somewhere in the middle of the article, "as many as 2 million people have died of starvation while Kim has amassed the world’s largest collection of Daffy Duck cartoons." Small price to pay.

Free sex for all applicants
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"As in many other countries, it's common for companies in Japan to offer prizes during special promotional campaigns. It's just that things get a little weird when you've got companies like Bakky Visual Planning, an adult video company known for its simulated rape movies whose current sales drive provides the chance to have an all-the-way romp with a porn actress. "To be honest, the pay is lousy but I really wanted to have a try at getting into the Guinness Book of Records," her statement says. "My privates are weak and I feel pain easily. But I've steeled myself to playing around with any number of men on the day."
