A Michigan mother is under investigation after she offered herself and her young daughter for sex in exchange for a $25 pawn extension on a laptop. It would be funny, if it weren't true. The pawn shop worker says the woman told him, "I don't have the money and I don't want to lose my laptop. What about me and my daughter can do something for you in the back room." To which the girl said: "Not me this time, mom. You mean you." Wow!
Kimberly Lee of Pearl River, Louisiana gave birth inside her home on Monday and left her newborn son on the ground in the backyard for at least 24 hours. According to police, Kimberly's husband and other children were aware that she was pregnant, but didn't know she had given birth. Kimberly's 13-year-old son called 911 around 7am Tuesday to report he and his 15-year-old sister found a crying newborn baby wrapped in a towel and blanket on the ground. Their father wrapped the baby in more blankets to warm it until EMTs arrived. Kimberly, who's allegedly 35 years old, admitted to police she put the newborn in the backyard and hid her pregnant from her extended family by wearing oversized clothing. She faces charges of cruelty to a juvenile and child desertion.

The Internet was broken today and many Web sites went black. (We started protesting on Tuesday, hence there were no new posts.) We're adamantly opposed to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its Senate companion, the Protect IP Act (PIPA), which censors the Internet and, if passed, will prevent sites like ours from bringing you news stories, videos or gossip. Call your local Senator or congressman and urge him/her to vote no to SOPA and PIPA. Aren't there more pressing matters Washington should be "fixing"?
