From the Mailbag…

Remember Abortion Man, the Damon Wayans-created "superhero" about which Tigtog blogged (in a post to which I linked) last month? Rachel Faulk over at Giving by Design has found an extremely upsetting (and possibly triggering) example of life imitating art.

Shaker Scott sends this post from Nicole at C&L about the GOP using an incident of voter disenfranchisement in Indiana as, naturally, a pattern for how to do more of the same.

Incertus grabbed this screenshot of the Sun-Sentinel's equivalent to the "odd news" section, "Strange But True." Which one of these things doesn't belong?

Shaker Skywind forwards this article, "Tampa Man Had Consensual Sex With Minor, Police Say," that has the stunning intro, "A Tampa man had consensual sex with a 12-year-old girl several times in recent months, Tampa police say." The Tampa police say that, do they? Well, someone send the Tampa police a memo that there's no such thing as consensual sex with a 12-year-old. That's called rape.

In good news, Shaker Kathleen passes on video of the awesome story of sportsmanship (sportswomanship? sportspersonship?) that we discussed last Friday. Big. Time. Blub.
