    Interesting find on a web site I just discovered:


    Yeah, probably should have given up that info.

    Yeah, other than Rick actually being Liysa Northon, kind of hard to top that one.


    Pics and the story here...

    Lawyers will make a little money off of this.

    This has been the best thing I've read in a long time. I sent it to a couple coworkers. We're all gobsmacked.

    Get this guy hooked up with the freelancer who exposed the fraudulent-ticket-writing police officer - and had been given a DWI from that officer - and you could have a hell of a staff.

    I hope Rick gets an extra conjugal visit for his trouble.

    I do love the reasoning that community journalists write about people they have relationships with all the time.

    Personally, I can't hardly write a story about a tennis player without the tennis mom chasing me around the locker room.

    Yes, that's a bunch of nonsense...I've been in community journalism for 15 years now, and yes, you build a network of contacts like you would at any newspaper, but I'm not sitting at Coach Podunk's family BBQ on a Saturday afternoon.
