And now for the important news ....

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | New York lawmakers in Albany debated a bill to outlaw teenage sexting Monday. The bill is timely. It would make it illegal for New York minors to post lewd pictures of themselves or others, send messages in sexually explicit language, or follow their congressman on Twitter.
Anthony Weiner apologized repeatedly to his wife Huma in Monday's press conference for his lewd behavior online with six women. They were married two years ago in a wedding officiated by Bill Clinton, who administered the vows. There are fewer loopholes in GE's tax return.
Nancy Pelosi called Monday for a House probe of Anthony Weiner for his sex-texting and lewd photo-sharing. She wants to know if he did it on government computers, and if he did was there a plastic cover over the computer at the time, or should she be worried about a virus.
U.S. Rep Anthony Weiner confessed texting lewd photos to women he met on Facebook. He also admitted to having phone sex with them without ever even meeting them in person. It's just more evidence that the start-up of Facebook was financed by divorce lawyers.
Alabama's lawmakers passed Arizona's immigration law, which allows police to check the citizenship of anyone they pull over. It should work great. They did a test run of the new law and in one day the Alabama police rounded up ten illegal aliens, six Yankees and two runaways.
New York hotels gave out panic buttons to hotel maids Monday after two international bankers sexually assaulted two maids in hotels. It seems like an overreaction. Normally these things are only carried by traders in the financial district on the days the Fed reports come out.
President Obama invited Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel to get Germany militarily involved in Libya. The Germans are a last resort. We were trying to make the overthrow of Moammar Khadaffi as humanitarian and painless as possible but apparently that's out the window.
Syria's government paid Syrian protesters one thousand dollars apiece to storm Israel's border fence Sunday, which resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties. This is how governments create jobs. They pay you to go and die, and then if you die they don't have to pay you.
