A Woman Who Won't Take No for an Answer

If you live long enough, you'll see just about everything in the news. Last week in Louisiana, which has historically been home to some odd situations and odder folks, a 19-year-old woman was apparently intent on having a romp in the hay with her live-in boyfriend nearly twice her age. He's not in the mood and resists her advances. She gets violent, bloodies his lip, and lands in jail, where the authorities take her mug shot, bad hair moment and all. The police blotter-besotted Smoking Gun site has all the gory details. As for me, well...I'm just kind of left shaking my head over this one.

You said it. This one wasn't my usual kind of item, but something about it just seemed to call out to be mentioned. I've also failed to call attention to the Smoking Gun, which breaks a lot of stories by good old fashioned scouring of public records, an art that's slowly being lost, or at least de-emphasized, as professional news staffs get ever smaller.

Wel, every picture tells a story, don't it? (To steal from Rod Stewart)

Fairly obvious from those booking photos who started the melee.

Yes, the photos are indeed a wonderful addition to the package. And Rodger, you're a wonderful addition to the conversation, all the way from L.A. (perhaps you found me via links from your fellow Angeleno T.J. Sullivan?). Anyway, I spent a good bit of time just now looking around your many online venues and came away impressed. Congratulations on the new book and all your other literary successes. I hope readers will also follow the link and check out some of your work. Do stop back again when the spirit moves you.

Sorry, I meant your new documentary. Though I also noted your book published via, which may or may not be new.
