    That's some weird stuff. Probably not as weird as Fox News is making it out to be, though.

    I mean...that's pretty much one of the worst things ever. Is it even possible to underrate how weird this is?

    Thread title is deceiving.

    Doesn't fall into the Poindexter category. It's not a teacher.

    And surely everyone knows Ace was joking

    Well, there's a possibility it might be a set-up:

    If so, that would be a pretty messed up kid.

    If it's all true it is really bizarre and obscene.

    However, here we the custodial parents of the 15-year-old, who probably took a dim view of the biological mother finding the kid and may have encouraged a charged based on a hug or a kiss, who knows? And mix that with Fox News looking to sensationalize it.

    Or it could just be stone cold creepy.

    I didn't see any family member or police source or police report quoted in that story that gave any kind of details -- just "experts" who wondered how it would affect the lad.

    I wasn't. I guess my point is that journalists should be more skeptical of what they read.

    Well, of course it is.

    How else might I be able to come back and type "Nanny, Nanny, D_B!" when someone else begins a thread about it with a legitimate title.

    I thought that was the SportsJournalists.com way.

    I -- as everyone else should -- will wait to form an opinion after watching Nancy Grace tonight.

    That is as it should be.

    And for the record, I would not hit it for fear of catching the crazy. Would not hit my mama, either.
