In fact the average price for a gallon of gas is the highest it's been in almost two years. Funny how the media aren't doing any more "Pain at the Pump" stories or questioning whether the White House is too friendly with the oil companies.

Medical Care Queues To Get Longer

“Even if you have great private health insurance now you won’t in your old age. My advice: plan accordingly. Start preparing for it by accumulating money. . . . You have been warned. What to do about it? Cut your spending and put aside more in retirement accounts. Also, when making career choices go for the money.

Apparently Miss May 1968, Angela Dorian, shot her husband in the back in October of this year. He survived and it turns out the gun she used, a Walther PPK, was given to Dorian by Roman Polanski back in 1969 after his wife was killed because he feared for her safety.

The 10 Smartest Porn Stars
Most of the porno stars that have managed to stay around for a while have something going on upstairs. And some of them have advanced degrees as well. No doubt Ron Jeremy uses his social worker skills daily.
