Most Eyebrow-Raising Headline of the Week

"Reptile store owner hit employees with bearded dragon, deputies say" - Sun-Sentinel

Siegel is accused of placing a bearded dragon lizard in his mouth, throwing it, swinging it in the air and using it to strike the victims 

In October 2012, Siegel held a cockroach-eating contest at the store. The winner, 32-year-old Edward Archbold, died after choking to death on bug parts and his vomit.

Court records show that Siegel also faces a cocaine possession charge from a Dec. 24, 2014, arrest.

I'm pretty sure he's too low-rent to be a contributor. Maybe he can be a policy adviser on animal rights after he does his prison time?

Died from bug eating, this is going to challenge me on the music side.

TSB: DiFi on the CNN Sunday morning to warn us about terror and say that General Petreaus is the 4 Star Gen. of our time and has suffered enough for his 'Miss' Stakes. What was that Ike said about the M-I Complex? gwb

Ike wouldn't have allowed a guy like General Petreaus to carry his golf bags. Really, how standards have gone down since the 50s!

Petreaus should pay for his compromises of classified information by going to prison. But then, so should lots of others, and most of them were not punished. His predessor as DCI, John Deutch, for instance. Still, I say make an example of him.

If for no other reason, then for his egregious crime of pimping up his Class A uniform with a square yard of ribbons and badges and do-dads. Petreaus would have benefitted from Ike's example when it came to uniforms. What did Ike and his WWII cohort wear on their uniforms? A row or two of ribbons, that's all. We knew they were in charge without having to see an explosion of fruit salad.
