I don't have much commentary (as usual), I just wanted to link to these posts.
There's this post about how Albany legislators hired their interns. Let's just say it had nothing to do with their resumes.
And this post is a tale of two football players. Both assaulted their girlfriends, but only one was kicked off the team. The other was kept on because he beat up his girlfriend for the right reasons--he wanted to baptize their son, and she didn't want to.
