Neighborhood dispute gets ugly
The term Neighbor From Hell seems an appropriate one for Julie Rank-Earley. Her neighbor once filed a police complaint about her, resulting in a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Instead of letting the issue drop, Rank-Earley decided to up the ante by subscribing to hundreds of dollars worth of pornographic magazines in the name of her neighbor. Her neighbor simply complained to the police again when she started getting all the bills. Now Rank-Earley is sitting in jail. [Dayton Daily News]

Anybody know Dick Cheney's address? That's a joke, BTW... Alex told me to say that, officer... The Devil made me fill out those stupid little subscription cards that fall all over the bathroom floor, so it's Religious Freedom, dammit. Oh, and an address for that twit from Crawford, too. Still a joke, Agent 86. Go talk to your shoe
