Ceai Complet: May 27, 2008

I eagerly await this "ripped from the headlines" episode of Law and Order:
Man: Neighbor killed by owl, not husband

DURHAM, N.C., May 26 (UPI) -- A former neighbor of a Durham, N.C., man convicted of his wife's murder claims the death was not caused by a human, but rather by an aggressive owl.

Larry Pollard claims his deceased neighbor Kathleen Peterson was killed by an owl attack in December 2001, not by her husband, novelist Mike Peterson, who is serving a life sentence in prison for the crime, the Raleigh (N.C.) News & Observer reported Monday.

Pollard, who formerly worked as a lawyer, said he has spent years gathering information that indicates Kathleen Peterson's wounds were caused by an owl, not by assault with a fire poker. He said that despite repeatedly informing the media of his theories, he has not presented his ideas to the Durham district attorney.

"I want it to be the best I have," Pollard said.

Durham District Attorney Jim Hardin, who led the prosecution of Peterson, said he has heard of the owl theory and discussed it with medical examiners. He said they dismissed the idea.

If there's anything I can't stand, it's a smart owl.

in an interesting coincidence, i turned to my wife yesterday while sitting on the beach, and said in reference to the family camped out next to us, 'if you have a confederate flag boogie board...you might be a redneck'.

Mexico has a Navy?

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The Mexican Navy searched for sharks in the ocean near Pacific surfing beaches on Monday, after two bathers were killed and another maimed in a rare spate of shark attacks.

This is random, but if you're gonna get sucked into a movie that the wife picks, you can do a lot worse than Atonement. It seems like a chick flick, but it's mostly a drama that's a very good movie.

You can also watch the movie and remember how hot Keira Knightley used to be when she was more than an emaciated bag of bones.

I know a lot of you like to watch thespians go at it, so I thought I would share this review with you all.
