Michigan Minister Sent to Prison for putting the fear of God in a Judge The American Civil Liberties Union is taking up the case of a southwestern Michigan minister who was sent to prison for warning that a judge could be tortured by God. The ACLU said it asked the state appeals court Wednesday to release the Rev. Edward Pinkney on bail while he appeals a probation violation. Lawyers claim his free-speech rights were trampled in Berrien County. In 2007, Pinkney, 60, was convicted of paying people to vote in a Benton Harbor election. Months later, he wrote an article in a Chicago newspaper, People's Tribune, saying the judge who handled his case, Alfred Butzbaugh, could be punished by God with curses, fever and "extreme burning" unless he changed his ways. In June 2008, another Berrien County judge, Dennis Wiley, sent Pinkney to prison for three to 10 years after finding that he had violated his probation by making a threat against the judge. "Those are words that would ... put the fear of God into anybody. . First Amendment
A Chinese couple got married in mid-air in two end loader buckets. The idea was to honor a tradition in Xi'an that the bride's feet shouldn't touch the ground during the journey from home to the ceremony. Organizer Fan Yalin said the usual way of following the tradition was for the groom to carry the bride in his arms from the car. But as the groom sells heavy machinery for a job, his colleagues came up with the idea of having them stand in two tractor buckets. The bride and two bridesmaids were in one and the husband and two best men in the other. The couple said they loved the novel ceremony, describing it as "dangerous but sweet". While one guest, a Ms Yang, was quoted as saying: "It was really cool to have a tractor bucket marriage. Very interesting."

Ms Fisher from Colchester, an academic researcher, said Cymbeline had been trained to collect the post without chewing it. He brought me this menu but it had stuck his jaws together. It was a big, high gloss paper menu which had turned into a paste - the gum stuck it between his teeth. "He was trying very hard to open his mouth. It was funny as well as sad." . Woman Sues Strip Club, Exotic Dancer Over Son's Death A Houston mother sued a strip club and an exotic dancer in the DUI death of her son, alleging the dancer was forced to get drunk for her job.

Prisoner mails himself to freedom An inmate escaped from jail in Germany by posting himself out of prison in a giant FedEx box of dirty laundry. Drug dealer Hans Lang, 42, hid in the laundry room after other inmates had finished work there and bundled himself up in dirty bed sheets in the large box. The package was then loaded onto a van and driven through the gates at the prison in Willich near Dusseldorf. He is understood to have waited until the driver made his next stop before getting out of the box, picking the lock on the back of the van and running off into nearby woods.

Book on sex positions given to primary pupils Children on a primary school trip to Sainsbury's were given a book containing pictures of sex positions as a going home gift. The book, How To Change The World For A Fiver, was mistakenly given to pupils, aged eight and nine, during a visit to the supermarket in Haverhill, Suffolk. The 42 children, from Burton End primary, were surprised to read advice such as - have a bath with a friend to: "Save water. Have fun. Just get out before everything becomes wrinkled." Other inappropriate suggestions in the £5 book include encouraging readers to shave in intimate places, streak, talk to strangers and hand out your phone number to five people on the street. The blunder came to light only when a father heard his daughter giggling with friends as they flicked through the pages. Engineer Andrew Dodd, 37, whose daughter Laura is eight, said: "I was furious. It was extremely inappropriate and irresponsible to give to children. "The teachers were as horrified as we were when they saw it. Laura thought it was funny but thankfully she didn't really understand it." A Sainsbury's spokesman admitted: "This was a well-intentioned mistake. It is a very nice book about how to make the world a better place but it is not targeted at children. "The cover looks like a kid's book. This was a mix-up and we would like to apologize for any distress caused. It certainly won't happen again." .
. Man hit in groin at batting cage awarded $1.2 million Man, that musta really hurt. And a Miami-Dade jury agreed. So the jury awarded almost $1.2 million to a 21-year-old guy who was hit in the groin by a batting-cage pitch. Lhyvann Felipe was 19 years old when struck by a 60 mph pitch and landed in the hospital. The ball struck him after an employee asked him to go back into the batting cage to help pick up the balls. The machine, which had already completed the cycle and did not have the lights on, spit out the ball, which hit him. The jury decided that the Sluggers batting cage operation at Tamiami Park in West Miami-Dade negligently failed to properly supervise its employees. The judgment called for Felipe to be paid $160,000 for medical expenses and $1 million for pain and suffering. Yeah, the million sounds about right. . Suspects try to write dirty word in the road but can't spell it Oh, f ---. But wait. How do you spell that word? Evidently, it was beyond the capabilities of some alleged thieves in Mary Esther. Cops say a trio of spelling-challenged folks boarded a boat and stole several items, which they used to vandalize the area. The suspects took one flashlight, two flare guns and some flares, a fire extinguisher and a radio. They then sprayed the fire extinguisher into a mailbox, before using it to spray an expletive in the road. We're not gonna write the word here. You know it. It contains four letters. But in this case, it was missing the last letter -- a "k." Even though the letters could be washed off the roadway and the word was spelled wrong, the suspects will face criminal mischief/graffiti charge, the cops say. If they catch 'em, we recommend a remedial spelling class as part of the sentence. . Man can't identify couple -- because he only saw them naked He knew what the couple was doing.

Portable urinal disguised as golf club A Miami Beach, Fla., urologist said he has invented a stealth urinal resembling a golf club for players too busy to stop their game to relieve themselves. Dr. Floyd Seskin, 49, said he invented the UroClub, which is designed to look like a 7-iron and fit in a golf bag, after hearing a story from a former patient about having to relieve himself in the woods during golf games due to his prostate condition, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday. "I wanted people to feel a level of comfort," Seskin said. "Worry where the pin is, not where's the next bathroom." The urologist-turned-inventor said the UroClub features a wide opening on the top and a handle that can hold about a half a liter of liquid. He said it comes with a golf towel that can attach to the club and a golfer's belt for privacy. "You can do it anywhere," Seskin said. "It looks like you're practicing your swing or something." .
