Arizona State University fraternity holds racist MLK Day party -- Drinking out of miniature watermelons. Yeah. If it weren't for that bit, the whole thing probably could have been plausibly denied.

Dame Angela Lansbury 'relieved' as Murder, She Wrote remake is scrapped -- I think her publicly expressed dismay is what doomed the project ultimately.

Let’s give pot smokers a little leeway -- Kathleen Parker wrote this?

I made a tried-and-true favorite tonight: shrimp alfredo alongside sauteed zucchini. The noodles are tossed with Buitoni alfredo sauce (with chips of Parmesan added, as well as white pepper). The shrimp is cooked separately, in an olive oil/butter mix, with chopped garlic; lemon juice is squeezed on top right before removing from the heat. As for the zucchini, it's dressed simply in olive oil, salt, pepper & thyme before a quick pan-fry.

I like this meal because it is so simple to assemble & yet so satisfying. It's too bad the dish itself is really not that healthy. *le sigh* I think I eat it once every four to six weeks.

(For the record, my other two favorite foods are nectarines & chocolate mousse, not in any particular order.)

Court: Marotta is a father, not merely a sperm donor -- "A Topeka man who donated sperm to a lesbian couple is the presumptive father to a baby one of the woman bore and is subject to paying child support, a Shawnee County District Court judge ruled Wednesday." This ruling really should not stand, IMO. The women were not seeking child support but rather the state.

Reno police cite 5, arrest 3 men and women during prostitution sting -- This just strikes me as incredibly stupid. This is the one state in the Union where prostitution is legal & these people can't travel outside one of the few counties where the practice is unsanctioned? Talk about shortsighted. Seriously: taxi drivers would be happy to ferry customers to any of the licensed brothels, as they get a cut of the negotiated price for any rendezvous. There is no excuse, save being extraordinarily cheap.

Your pot or your gun? Medical marijuana smokers may have to choose -- This law is unconstitutional on its face. As one of the comments stated, "known alcoholics" don't cede their 2nd Amendment rights by virtue of substance use. Those prescribed oxycodone & other legalized forms of heroin aren't punished in such a fashion. I didn't know there was a way to get me to be a 2nd Amendment advocate, but apparently someone devised a controversy that's done precisely that.
