According to federal court documents, Shepard followed the woman back-and-forth across the country since getting rejected for a second date in New York in the early ’90s.
While in New York, he’d call her late at night and hang up the phone. He’d go to where she worked, went to school, got on the subway, and where she lived. He mailed her a photocopy of her high school yearbook photo. Once, the woman answered the door to her apartment, and Shepard grabbed her arm to try to get inside — which he didn’t manage to do.
Tonight, former defensive coordinator for Penn State, Jerry Sandusky learned he was going from Penn State to the State Pen. It’s getting harder to tell the sports coaches from the Catholic priests, isn’t it? In fact, shortly after the Sanduskyverdict was delivered, a local priest remarked, “So now they’ll just move him to another school, right?”
But Sandusky is indeed going down – and not with a 12 year old for once.
And in a related story, the City Council of Sandusky, Ohio voted 11-2 to change the name of their city from Sandusky, Ohio to “Honestly, we never even met the bastard, Ohio.”
When I first came to the United States, my first gig was the Texas Shrine Circus dates – my very first circus. I was honored to work with Terry and Delilah Wallenda, direct descendants of the famous Flying Wallendas (Delilah was Karl Wallenda’s Granddaughter). At the time, their son, Nik, was just a little squirt -all of 8 years old.
Well… tonight that “squirt” became the first person to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope. Last time I saw Nik, he was – as they say – knee high to a grasshopper. Tonight, he snatched the proverbial pebble from Mother Nature’s hand. And if you watch the video, he was talking to the media covering his walk WHILE HE WAS WALKING! Congratulations, Nik. Beyond incredible. I can only imagine how proud your Mom and Dad (Terry and Delilah) must be at this moment. I share that pride and I can only hope all of America does as well. (I have a strong feeling they do.)
Finally, doctors take it upon themselves to calm a panicked public as the media hyperventilates over a Georgia woman whose leg had to be amputated to stop the spread of flesh-eating bacteria, now known to infect thousands of Americans every year. As if this bloody chaos weren’t bizarre enough, it gets weirder still: All of these events happened in the same week.
Many animal lovers find it hard to part with their pets when they die.
So when cat Orville, named after the famous aviator Orville Wright, was run over by a car, his artist owner decided to turn him into a permanent piece of artwork as the ultimate tribute by transforming him into a flying helicopter.
Dutch artist Bart Jansen first stuffed Orville before teaming up with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman to build a specially-designed flying mechanism to attach to the cat.
Jansen said the Orvillecopter is ‘half cat, half machine’, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his cat Orville. Click here for video.
“My first shoot was amazing,” Nadya said. “Such a learning experience for me in so many ways. I don’t think I could have asked for a better crew to work with. They were so patient and willing to teach me. I owe a lot to Wicked Pictures contract star Jessica Drake; she opened my eyes to a whole different world of self-pleasure that I could have never imagined. They made me look so glamorous, and for the first time in my life, I felt beautiful and sexy. I’m very excited for it to come out!”
(Doug: Spoken like a woman who’s given birth to 14 children. And wait ’til you hear about the photo shoot that accompanied the film.)
Nadya also posed for a set of photographs in which she’s seated at the head of a long table, ” her body covered with SpaghettiOs. “For the pictures, we had her topless with a thick sparkly red choker with a big red heart in front and red and white polka dot panties … like 1950s style,” an insider tells me. “SpaghettiOs were all over her body and she’s even throwing the SpaghettiOs toward the camera. The label on the can was changed from SpaghettiOs to say ‘Saucy Octos.’”
Multiple members of the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle Church in Greensburg, Indiana tell TMZ the church office has been getting harassing calls and the pastor has received death threats at his home. They also say a prayer meeting scheduled for this evening at church had to be moved to a secret location.
Despite the threats, all the members we spoke to have no regrets about the song getting posted online — in fact one said, “The people who are upset just don’t read the word of God. If we don’t teach the children the truth early they will never learn.”
As for the thunderous applause after the hate-filled song — we’re told, “Of course we applauded a child who is singing a song about God.”
