1) A former Baptist church leader who had supported a Southern Baptist resolution calling on gays and lesbians to reject their "sinful, destructive lifestyle" now claims a constitutional right to solicit sex. His defense argues that since the Supreme Court struck down

The Rev. Lonnie W. Latham was arrested Jan. 3, 2006, and charged with soliciting an undercover policeman to come to his hotel for oral sex. Now that Rev Latham has come out and seen the light, he wants all the protections he fought to deny his gay brothers. I think our archaic and intrusive sex laws need to go, but in this case to show Lonnie-boy how hypocrisy hurts; I'll support giving him some jail time.

2) Fake bull testicles and other anatomically explicit vehicle decorations would be banned from Maryland roads in a bill introduced by LeRoy Myers Jr., R-Washingon. He wants to protect children from exposure to giant plastic gonads dangling from pickup truck trailer hitches. The bill also would ban depictions of naked human breasts, buttocks or genitals, with offenses punishable by fines of up to $500.

By pressing for this law, I assume everything else is perfect in Maryland, no poverty, kids who can't read, no potholes in roads and so on. And why to all these silly ass bills have a sponsor identified as "R-"? Never mind, I do not expect an answer.

3) James Pacenza, who was fired by IBM for visiting an adult chat room at work is suing the company for $5 million, claiming he is an Internet addict who deserves treatment and accommodation rather than termination. Mr Pacenza claims he visits chat rooms to treat Vietnam War related traumatic stress. In the claim, Pacenza said the stress caused him to become "a sex addict, and with the development of the Internet, an Internet addict." He is claiming protection under the American with Disabilities Act.
