Chuck's Links for Friday, April 24, 2009

Shane Foster, 21, one of those Ku Klux Klan members who practices the notion that Aryans like him are superior, was ruled by a Louisiana judge as not bright enough to be tried for taking part in the murder of a woman who had tried to back out of the Klan. Times-Picayune

News of this lawsuit emanated from a German newspaper, so, y'know, be careful, but on the other hand, it passed the authentication test of a named, mainstream Yahoo UK editor, so I'm going with it (in one of my rare probable copyright violations): A court in Stuttgart is now hearing a lawsuit by a sterile husband, Demetrius Soupolos, who (with permission of his former-beauty-queen wife) hired a neighbor to impregnate her the old-fashioned way for €2k, and he gave it his all, um, 72 times over the next 6 months, but to no avail. The neighbor, confused, had his own sperm analyzed and of course found out he's sterile, too. Now Soupolos wants his money back. The neighbor said he had tried as hard as he could and that no guarantee was given, and besides, the neighbor's wife had to confess that he wasn't the father of "their" two kids, either. Yahoo UK-Ireland [UPDATE: Newsrangers report that this story happened a long time ago. More on this later.]

You had a bad day, maybe, but not as bad as the "pregnant woman running from bear hit by car" in Colorado Springs. She's in stable condition; the bear was tranquilized; the driver 's nowhere to be found. Denver Post

Madlyn Primoff, 45, got a lot of press this week for having tossed her misbehaving kids, age 10 and 12, out of the car in downtown White Plains, N.Y. (i.e., actually carrying out what, to 50 million parents, is only a bluff). The older girl came back, but Madlyn had to pick up the other at the police station (and was promptly arrested). Turns out she's a big-shot NYC lawyer. New York Post [with mugshot, looking like you wouldn't mind your lawyer looking, but maybe not your mother]

The F State, though, is full of hardcore parents, such as Natasha Brinkley, 43, who was arrested in Silver Springs Shores, Fla., for menacing her children with a butcher knife, throwing a glass table at them, and calling them the MF word. WFTV (Orlando)

Prank or serious issue? A 17-yr-old boy was charged with disorderly conduct during class as Pequea Valley High School, Leacock Twp, Pa. (unzipping in class and masturbating while calling out students' names). No details yet. Patriot-News (Harrisburg)

[Jury Duty] Well, not really. She's kinda guilty. Nicole Marty, 25, charged with possession of a controlled substance and crashing her car with her 9yr-old daughter inside. The Smoking Gun
