Tempers flared and the TV crew payed the price.

The Museum at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston has unveiled a new online feature: The President’s Desk. You can click around the desktop an get various videos, audio and text from the good old JFK days. There is even a secret recording button you can click. Clicking the telephone displays up a list of recorded conversations,from which you can listen to the president talk to his brothers Robert and Edward. "Hey Ted, what really happened at Chappy?" Well, I guess the time sequence is wrong to hear that one. Click the women's panties in the drawer and see a secret video of JFK and Marilyn Monroe. Too much to hope for I suppose.

Black students late because slaves were late says professor

Slavery in Brazil, by Jean-Baptiste Debret (17...Image via Wikipedia
Murray State University political science professor Mark Wattier is planning to retire after allegedly making the following remark to two late black students. This is one of the student's recollection of what was said: "Well, it’s OK, I expect it of you guys anyway,’” When asked to clarify, he allegedly said that slaves never showed up on time, so their owners often lashed them for it. Wattier had this to say about the incident:  "I did say, 'Do you know why you were late? There's a theory that a way to protest their master's treatment was for slaves to be late.' Take your pick of versions, but in either case, the good professor has used some bad judgement.

Mean mom sells kid's toys on eBay

A mom, fed up with her boys spinning tops that were wrecking her bathtub, decided to sell the toys on eBay. She put the posting up – complete with photo of her crying boys. Fortunately, she attracted the attention of site 4chan, which quickly ran the bidding up to $999,999 before the auction was closed, most likely at the mom's request. The kid's toys were saved, but they are still stuck with one mean mom.
Here is the mom's original eBay posting:

"We are selling 8 Beyblades, 2 of them light up. As you can tell they are not happy about this! They have been using their bathtub as a "battle arena" and Beyblades + Bathtub = Destruction!!! With the metal ones they managed to scrape the enamel off the tub, take a chunk of tub out and break off the soap holder. SO if you "win" this auction DON'T play with in a bathtub!!! We have recieved a quote of $500.00 to replace the tub, some tiles, and soap holder + labor of course! They had approxamently $125.67 in their piggy banks that will be going to toward the cost. We will use the profit from this auction towards the balance and then it is onto other toys!"
