A judge granted child custody to the child's transsexual
father in a highly contested Florida divorce case. The
child's mother sought a divorce on the grounds that the
marriage had been illegal because the father had
originally been a female. The father counter-charged
mental cruelty alleging that his wife, who knew about his
sex change operation, would taunt him by repeatedly
playing "She's Always a Woman."

A restaurant owner in North Carolina has renamed his French
fries "freedom fries" to dramatize his boycott of France for
not supporting the US in the upcoming war on Iraq. Going
along with this idea, Wonder Bread now offers its recipe for
"freedom toast", youngsters are "freedom kissing" and the
Youngs Rubber Company of Akron Ohio has come out with a new
line of condoms, the "freedom tickler."

products. See the whole story at froggiewentacourting.com

First Guy: ...so what your saying is, buying
drugs is giving money to terrorists.
Second Guy: Right. It couldn't be more simple.
First Guy: But the marijuana I buy is grown in
Amsterdam, and the Dutch are on our side. So I guess you
could say when I do drugs I am giving money to help
support our staunchest allies.
Second Guy: It's not that simple...

TRIAL BY JURY
Ed Ryan, President of Toxic Storage Products, begs a jury
to believe his version of how 500 acres of land near his
storage site became uninhabitable due to severe arsenic
poisoning. The State contends that poisonous material
leached into the soil from the company's poorly
maintained, broken and leaking underground storage tanks,
forcing 254 families to give up their homes and move. Ryan
claims the poisoned soil is due to a curse put on the
property by the first landowner Peter Van de Harbaak
(1671--1748) whose wife jilted him for a Haitian houseboy.
The two fled to the Dominican Republic and were never
heard from again. Van de Harbaak was said to have engaged
an old Haitian woman with a knowledge of voodoo to put a
spell upon the land stating that the poison would manifest
"in the year 2003 or around that time."
