Thanks GG.  How is it related to men's issues?


Although it's not a website specifically related to men's issues, I feel it can be a resource for men that are or have been maliciously prosecuted.  I felt it had relavent info for me and thought other men might feel so as well.

Hi Dr E...

This link looks like a good resource...I got it from the website of the people that did the "Mr Big" movie.

I saw this on Friday at the US premere for the movie.  This was a great movie.  It turned my stomach to watch it...I felt like I was back on trial.

Here is the appeal website which has great detail about their case...

Here is a list of cities it's screening in...

This is a documentery about a pair of guys that were entrapped (as alleged by the movie maker, one of the convited guys sister) in an investigation techneque use by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police called "Mr. Big".

If you live in Canada, be affraid...very affraid....or keep you mouth shut (perhaps both).

Completely unrelated to the film...

While I was at the viewing, there was a wine glass that was knocked over and broken in the row in front of me.  The people on the left of the isle clean up the glass near them.  I could see that there were a couple of pieces of sharp glass in front of the women directly in front of me (to the right of the isle).  I tapped on her shoulder and said "there's some glass near your foot".

Her reply was (and I know I wasnt imagining the french accent which makes it even more ironic that she was a French cunt)  "I'm not in charge of picking up the glass and I dont get paid to be a maid so if you want it picked up you should pick it up yourself!"

I couldnt believe her response.  I said "suite yourself but I was just telling you as a cortisey so you dont cut your foot"

In retrospect...I wish I would have said that "it was interesting that you took my statement to mean that, it's as if you go around in life and imediately assume that you are subseriant to men in most situations".  Of course I could always called her cunt but that's too easy....

Here's a link to the little darling's mug shots. 

It's nice to know they are being charged as adults.

Dozens of people who knew Linehan in the decade after Leppink's murder wrote letters supporting her, mentioning her generosity and volunteer service. But Volland said he could not offer a sentence different from the one he gave to Carlin.

"In my mind I can find no principal distinction between the puppet who pulls the trigger and the puppeteer who pulls the strings," Volland said. "In my judgment, Ms. Linehan was the puppeteer who pulled the strings."



Finally a judge with some balls!

She even involked the pussy pass defense...which as history has shown is very difficult for a judge(or jury) to rule against. 

The P-pass is like kryptonite to superman, but this judge just smacked it down like a fly...

I found out that the squirls I was relocating from my garden to the river a couple blocks away that I was releasing them next to Lisa Madigan's house.

Ordinarily it's no big deal but Lisa Madigan is the Attorney General for the state of Illinois!

I spoke with her about it, she didnt seem to mind...

Hey Jen:

How long have you been a trainer?  Did you have to get anykind of certification for that?

I'm starting a dog walking business and would like to get into the training aspect as well...

Here's an editorial from today's tribune on spring  break.....

What's happening on spring break beaches isn't just boys being boys and girls going wild. It's young people, women especially, deciding that the way to measure their readiness for the adult world is not in terms of education or emotional maturity but sexual desirability.


Yeah, no shit...

Meanwhile, in news of the "no duh" variety, the American Medical Association released figures about sex and alcohol use during rowdy spring break vacations. The poll, which surveyed female college students and graduates ages 17 to 35, found that 74 percent believed women used drinking "as an excuse for outrageous behavior," 83 percent "had friends who drank the majority of nights while on spring break" and 12 percent "felt forced or pressured into sex" during spring break.

Interesting article about advertising to men.

Someone's Coming On to Your Mate: What Would You Do?

But the waitress' flirting kept escalating. She asked Drew whether he had any tattoos, which he didn't. Then she bared her stomach to him and said she was thinking of getting one on her tummy after work and wondered whether it would hurt.

Drew said he didn't know because he didn't have a tattoo. Jessie said she would come back with their order soon.


At that point, Nikki no longer referred to the flirtatious female as their waitress -- she promptly deemed her the "skank" or "ho."

Relationship coach Donna Barnes said it looked like Nikki was letting off steam.

"I think clearly she's venting," she said.

Nikki continued to vent.

"I'm gonna pull the hair out of her f--ing head," she said.

Makes a guy want to run off to the burbs and get married....Not!

All Things Considered, February 14, 2008 Amid all the claims for romantic prowess being peddled by film stars, rock stars and flat-bellied bachelors, the real superheroes of the bedroom go largely unacknowledged.

And so, this Valentine's Day -- a day when suburban mommies everywhere will be showered with construction paper hearts, overpriced chocolates and things from Victoria's Secret that we will wear only once, if at all -- it is time to extend some long-overdue credit.

The publishing world may not have figured it out yet, but if the truth were told, the best-selling how-to manuals on the shelf would be devoted to the Bedroom Secrets of the Suburban Dad.

It's true.

Sorry to bust your bubble Casanova, but these guys have earned the title.

You think it's hard to get the attention of a woman in a bar? Puh-leeze.

These guys have to convince a woman who has fallen asleep in her clothes reading Thomas the Tank Engine stories that what she really wants right now is some midnight romance under the giant pile of laundry covering the master bed.

You want to brag about technique? These guys keep the steam building knowing that at any minute -- and probably more than once -- they will be interrupted by a crying child, a ringing phone or their wives' spontaneous recollection that they forgot to sign a permission slip for the field trip.

We are talking about enticing a woman who, no matter how diligently you work to set the mood, will be filtering your sweet whisperings and best maneuvers through the running commentary of her mental Blackberry: "Oh, that feels ... Is that coughing? I will never make deadline if she's sick. Wait, what is today? Is it the 10th?" And, "Oh. Oh. Oh God, it's the 14th. Mom's birthday. I should send flowers. Better write myself a note. If I could just reach ... a pen."

My point is, these guys have honed their skills under conditions you could not imagine.

You single metrosexuals may have better underwear, but you are amateurs next to them.

Plus, today, they all get a new pair.

That heat coming out of the suburbs -- it's not just the BBQ grills.

BERLIN (Reuters) - A woman in Germany who became pregnant after an online sex auction has won a court battle to force the Web site that hosted the sale to reveal the names of the winners, so she can find out who's the father.

Six different men won Internet auctions to have sex with the woman in April and May last year. They were only known to her by their online names, a spokesman for a court in the southwestern city of Stuttgart said Wednesday.

"The woman wanted to discover which one of the men had made her pregnant," the spokesman said. "So she needed their contact details. Of course, if they're not willing to go along with the gene test, she'll have to take them to court."

The woman asked the site's operator to reveal the true identity of the men, but it refused, citing a confidentiality clause in its terms and conditions.

The court ruled in her favor, saying the child's right to know who its father was took precedence.

The court declined to give the woman's age and nationality

Stolen puppy returned safely to pet store

Acting on a tip, police officers Tuesday night went to the home of a Crystal Lake woman and found the $1,100 Boston terrier. The 4 1/2-pound puppy had been implanted with a microchip, which was used to identify it.

"I'm happy he was only gone one day," said Dan Hamilton, owner of Petland.




Jennifer L. Zulawski, 38, of the 900 block of Darlington Lane, was charged with retail theft, a felony. Zulawski turned herself in to police Wednesday evening and was released with a notice to appear in Circuit Court on Feb. 19.

The investigation is continuing and more charges are possible, officials said.

On Wednesday morning, the puppy cuddled in Petland employee Erin Underwood's arms and fell asleep. Hamilton said the puppy was in good health and playful when officers brought it to the store.

"I think he is the sweetest dog we've ever had here," Underwood said.

The woman went to Petland on Monday evening with three children, whose ages appeared to range from 7 to 12, and asked to see the black-and-white terrier. Carrying a large brown leather purse, the woman went into an enclosed area with the children to play with the puppy.

After about 20 minutes, the two older children left the playroom and asked an employee to show them aquariums in the back of the store, police said.

"My manager said the children were saying things like, 'My mom told us to ask about tanks. My mom told us to ask about filters,'" Hamilton said.

"What amazes me is that someone actually used her kids like this," Hamilton said.

At 7:45 p.m., a surveillance camera showed the woman leaving the store holding her bag, which appeared to be full, with two hands. Her children walked out after her, police said.

Hamilton said the woman had tried to buy the puppy on Sunday but was unable to finance it.

He said the woman and her husband called him Wednesday morning, but he told them he could not talk to them because he was filing a complaint.

"If I don't [press charges], what message am I sending to her children? I'm really sending a message to all of them that what she did was not right," Hamilton said.

Three years ago, someone stole a Maltese puppy, which was never found.

He said he is going to require shoppers to hand over their driver's licenses before being allowed to play with the pets.
