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

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

Portland, Oregon – It turns out that the down-and-out in Portland like to eat free food and linger. For hours on end. While the point of the eatery is to help people out, the experiment was never intended as a homeless shelter. The business model depends on attracting customers who will pay retail for their meals, and some who will pay a little extra. There’s a difference between a restaurant with a diverse clientele and a day shelter with paintings of bread on the walls, and the restaurant began to resemble the latter. “We had to help them understand that this is a café of shared responsibility and not a handout,” Panera founder Ron Shaich said. “It can’t serve as a shelter and we can’t have community organizations sending everybody down.”  Full Article   CigarettesAmerica.com – Discount Cigarettes, Free Shipping, Tax Free

Fresno, California – A Northern California teacher says he doesn’t want to hear a common courtesy in his classroom. He’s even lowering students’ grades if they say “bless you” after someone sneezes.

New York – When New York made its pitch for one of NASA’s decommissioned space shuttles, one of its selling points was location: a glistening berth on the Hudson River alongside the aircraft carrier that is home to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. But five months after the Intrepid was awarded the shuttle Enterprise – one of four shuttle that Houston vied for but did not get – museum officials have turned their attention from the end of the newly revamped pier to a parking lot on 12th Avenue, across the cacophonous West Side Highway. They envision converting the lot, which is surrounded by a bagel bakery, a car wash, storage warehouses and a strip club, into a space-themed museum that would serve as the home of the Enterprise and draw as many as 1 million visitors a year. Houston, home of the Johnson Space Center, was shut out in a decision that enraged elected officials in Texas.  Full Article    Personalization Mall

A police officer, though scheduled for all-night duty at the station, was relieved of duty early and arrived home four hours ahead of schedule, at 2 in the morning. Not wanting to wake his wife, he undressed in the dark, crept into the bedroom and started to climb into bed. Just then, his wife sleepily sat up and said, “Mike, dearest, would you go down to the all-night drug store on the next block and get me some aspirin? I’ve got a splitting headache.” “Certainly, honey,” he said, and feeling his way across the dark room, he got dressed and walked over to the drug store.

“Yeah, so?” said the officer. “Well what the heck are you doing all dressed like the Fire Chief?”
