RIGS, PORN, MANHOOD

Three briefs:

•Hurricane Rita was no Katrina, but the storm "caused more damage to oil rigs than any other storm in history and will force companies to delay drilling for oil in the US and as far away as the Middle East, initial damage assessments show." That's according to the Financial Times.

•The Justice Department has won the war on terror and is now deploying agents against the war on porn. Ars Technica reports:
According to FBI headquarters, the war against smut is "one of the top priorities" of Attorney General Gonazalez and FBI Director Robert Meuller. Although law enforcement agencies have always been aggressive when it comes to prosecuting exploitative child pornographers, this new initiative is unique in that it targets Internet pornography featuring consenting adults.
Your tax dollars, hard at work.

•Speaking of hard work, English teacher Amber Jennings had sex with a 16-year-old student in Dudley, Mass. She got two years probation and surrendered her teaching license -- but not for having sex with the lad. Her crimes? Letting him take pictures during the sex, and swapping risque snaps with him on the Internet. The Worcester Telegram and Gazette reports that the boy's mother was especially bent outta shape:
“No mother should have to see pictures of her son’s high school English teacher naked,” the mother noted during a brief conversation. “She seized his manhood ... I know where her tattoos are. I know a lot about her body I shouldn’t know.”
We know that no thread about teachers having sex with students is complete without a mug of the offender, so here you go, Mr. Curbstone Critic.

Well, she ain't no Debra LaFave .. but she ain't that pig sticker from the trailer park either. (I fortunately have forgotten her name and don't want to be reminded)

Tatoos, eh? Just a natural curiosity on the part of mom?? I wonder if she would have nocticed if it were a tattoo of Jerry Falwell like I have on my butt?
