New Orleans, Lousiana – A high-ranking NOPD officer is being looked at as the target of an official police inquiry. Police Association President Michael Glasser is being accused of altering the license plate on his police vehicle. It is a particularly touchy subject because Captain Glasser is the integrity control officer for the NOPD’s special operations division – among other things, the department is involved in handing out red light camera tickets. According to Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas, Glasser’s NOPD-issued take home vehicle was observed with a device over the license plate that obscures the numbers and letters on that plate.  Full Article   Discount cigarettes shipped worldwide – Free shipping

Mexico – Mexico City lawmakers are proposing legislation that would allow newlyweds to apply for temporary marriage licenses, instead of making the plunge into wedded life a lifetime commitment. The change to civil code was proposed this week and would allow couples to decide the length of the commitment, with two years as the minimum. If couples are still enjoying wedded bliss when the contract ends, then they would be able to renew the license. And if they’re unhappy, the contract expires and they are both free without going through a divorce. The legislation has proved to be controversial in Mexico, the country with the second largest Catholic population in world, after Brazil.  Full Article    Be a Prisoner Pen Pal – Free Prisoner Pictures and Stories

Pennsylvania – A judge says Wal-Mart must pay up for overpricing sausages by 2 cents. Consumer activist Mary Bach was awarded $100 in damages and $80 in court costs today, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Bach, of Murrysville, says sausages she purchased last month in Delmont were listed at 98 cents, but she was charged $1 at checkout. The clerk refunded the difference and noted the error, Bach says. But when she went back to the store six days later she was again charged $1, though the shelf price was still 98 cents. Bach says the overcharges happen far too often. Wal-Mart says new packaging was to blame.  Full Article   Read Nutty News on your iPhone and iPad

Texas – The state climatologist for Texas says the record drought of 2011 could be only the beginning of a dry spell that could last until 2020. State climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon tells the Austin American-Statesman says water planning is often based on standards set by the previous record drought of the 1950s, which lasted nearly 10 years. Nielsen-Gammon, who also is a Texas A&M professor of atmospheric sciences, says the present drought could be significantly longer-lasting than what has been planned for. He says that, sooner or later, there will be a drought that’s worse than the previous standard-setter.  Full Article   CigarettesAmerica.com – Discount Cigarettes, Free Shipping, Tax Free
