From Hal's Facebook page:
"Excerpts from my book-in-progress, An Olympian Feast, continue, this chunk being about the 1920 Games in Antwerp, a town I never have visited."

Wonder if he will have a chapter about Suzy.

I thought this headline was interesting on its own:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2013/01/30/canary-in-the-trousers-why-erectile-dysfunction-can-signal-heart-disease/

But when placed in conjunction with the following...
http://www.tmz.com/2013/01/30/ron-jeremy-hospitalized-aneurysm-porn-star/

it might be prophetic.

Just hope both these stories have a happy ending.

Victim recalls assailant’s breasts, little else

A woman intentionally rammed her car into a man’s car while arguing over a parking spot in the Haight, but the victim was so focused on her low-cut dress that all he could describe to officers afterward were her breasts, San Francisco police said Thursday.

The woman drove away after hitting the man’s car at Haight and Cole streets at 5 p.m. Tuesday, said Park Station Officer Al Wu. The man couldn’t tell officers what kind of car it was, let alone supply a license-plate number, but he “was able to give a detailed description of the suspect’s cleavage,” police said.

No one has been arrested.

From the "Sentence you don't expect to read in your lifetime" category...

"He was nice, sympathetic and talented at fighting in plate armor," Sahlin told The Associated Press. "A little bit reserved maybe."

This one is just too good to post a link:

Man acquitted in romantic bear-spray squabble

A San Francisco man was acquitted Thursday of breaking into his ex-fiancée’s house and assaulting her new lover before getting sprayed with bear mace by a shirtless neighbor.

Jurors deliberated for just three hours before finding Christoper Hall, 31, innocent of the two felonies.

The “chaotic and confusing” night began on March 25 when Hall broke off his plans to marry his 34-year-old fiancée, said Deputy Public Defender Phoenix Streets.

The two had met in a hacky-sack circle in early February and announced plans to marry just two weeks later, Streets said. But the relationship quickly turned tumultuous, Streets said, and the pair broke up on March 25.

Hall took his few possessions and moved out of his fiancée’s home and into a tree at Mclaren Park. But as Hall climbed the tree and attempted to sleep that first night, he became cold and returned home, Streets said.

Hall’s former lover was not there, so Hall “curled up under a tarp under the woman’s backyard bushes,” Streets said.

Around 10 p.m., the woman, who had been at the movies with a “new male friend,” returned home. The man “happened to be a former U.S. Marine with extensive combat training,” Streets said.

As the woman and her new friend talked in the kitchen, they heard noises outside and decided to investigate. The woman armed herself with a knife while the friend grabbed a frying pan, Streets said.

As the pair approached Hall, he looked up and began yelling and running after them, Streets said.

“As the woman closed and locked the door in Hall’s face, his hand went through the window pane,” Streets said.

Hall opened the door and grabbed the Marine, demanding to know who he was. The pair fell backward and scuffled for 90-seconds, Streets said.

The Marine eventually put Hall in a headlock and encouraged him “to take deep breaths and relax,” Streets said.

During the fight, the woman fled and told a neighbor that Hall was going to kill the Marine, Streets said.

The neighbor “ran out of his house shirtless and armed with an aerosol can of bear repellant,” Streets said.

The group hauled Hall outside, and he kicked the door, prompting the neighbor to open the door and spray Hall in the face with bear mace, Streets said.

Hall then picked up a rock and hurled it at the door before fleeing the scene, Streets said. He was arrested several hours later.

Streets said that jurors did not convict Hall because they did not find Hall’s ex-fiancée to be a credible witness. The Marine also suffered no apparent injuries, Streets said.

“There was no doubt Mr. Hall had a terrible night, but this case was grossly overcharged,” Streets said. “You cannot commit a burglary if you have the right to be in a building. Mr. Hall had paid rent, made improvements to the house and still had some of his belongings inside.”

Hall was facing seven years in state prison for the felonies. He was found guilty of misdemeanor vandalism.

Pimp sues Nike for not warning shoes could be dangerous if used to beat people

This seems reasonable. How was the poor guy to know that stomping on someone's head repeatedly was dangerous?

Generally, it wouldn't, but Nikes are defective that way. You never hear of people getting injured by Keds or Converse.
