Mr. Butt gets foster child despite molestation record
Morning Call | Submitted by: j trotter
"A convicted pedophile duped the Northampton County Children and Youth department and the state into placing a 12-year-old foster child in his Allentown home where the boy spent three months before the ruse was discovered. ... Ira Butt, who was convicted earlier this month for possessing child pornography, used his adult son's Social Security number to elude a criminal background check required to place the child in the home he shared with his partner. The sham by Butt, a former Boy Scout leader who admitted in court to sexually abusing a half-dozen children throughout his life, has prompted the agency to change the way it screens applicants."

Pentagon preparing to attack North Korea
US News and World Report | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has ordered U.S. military commanders to devise a new war plan for a possible conflict with North Korea. Elements of the draft, known as Operations Plan 5030, are so aggressive that they could provoke a war, some senior Bush administration officials tell U.S. News. ... The plan would give commanders in the region authority to conduct maneuvers -- before a war has started -- to drain North Korea's limited resources, strain its military, and perhaps sow enough confusion that North Korean generals might turn against the country's leader, Kim Jong Il. 'Some of the things [Fargo] is being asked to do,' says a senior U.S. official, 'are, shall we say, provocative.'"

A brief overview of our next battlezone
CBS News | Submitted by: Stalin Lives

Man wins hourlong battle with black bear
Anchorage Daily News | Submitted by: Darwin
"Armed only with a big stick, U.S. Forest Service recreation technician Jeff Nissman last week waged a successful, hour-long, running battle with a black bear... Over the course of the encounter, Nissman repeatedly clubbed the bear. That drove it back, but did not curb its interest. The bear, according to Nissman, refused to give up the chase until the man reached the regularly trafficked Crow Creek Road. ... 'I made maybe 150 yards into the thick woods when I heard the bear charging through the woods at me.' Having undergone Forest Service bear training, he knew this was not a good sign." [Got that? Write it down.]

Grandma admits spiking baby's bottle, flees jurisdiction
AZ Central | Submitted by: Chronic Goddess
"When Melissa Gernert fed her month-old baby one evening in February, police say she unknowingly gave her child a lethal mixture of formula laced with salt. The rare death-by-salt case was made even more exceptional when Pennsylvania authorities named the lead suspect: the child's grandmother, who is now on the run. ... When questioned by police in February, the grandmother said she had spiked the formula to "get back" at the young couple by making the baby spit up, Fister said. ... While doctors immediately suspected that salt killed Megan, police couldn't press charges until the toxicology report came back, a report not completed until June, Fister said. By then, Long had fled."

Finland grudgingly considers taxing prostitution to death
News Corporation | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Finnish Justice Minister Johannes Koskinen, who is seeking to make the buying of sex illegal in a bid to curb the sex trade, admitted on Monday that taxing prostitutes who continue to ply their trade could be a more effective method. Finland's parliament is currently considering whether to follow neighboring Sweden's example and criminalize the buying of sex, while the act of selling it would still be legal. ... In Sweden, prostitutes are able to declare their earnings -- though their clients are breaking the law by paying them -- in order to benefit from the country's generous social benefits."

Fort Myers News-Press | Submitted by: skeletor
"After a four-and-a-half-hour standoff, Lee County Sheriff's deputies gassed a North Fort Myers camper Sunday only to find the wanted man wasn't inside. ... Deputies began evacuating the campground about 1:45 p.m. Sunday, blocking off Triplett Road at the Wells Road intersection. As about 50 residents waited for hours to return home, officers waited for a search warrant.
