Somebody wasn’t paying attention during yesterday’s Syria Senate hearing. While foreign policy and military officials debated on whether or not to use military force against Syria, Rep.

Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing – worst of all I lost! [WashPost]

Well here’s another reason rape is bad (not that we needed one). Richard Thomas, a convicted rapist from the UK, is upset after learning that he may have contracted HIV from the woman he assaulted.
