First of all, yes, she is alive. Second of all, yes, she is stupid. I don’t know who thinks socking a bear in the nose is a smart thing, but for some reason, she did, AND she got away with it.
Brooke Collins heard her dachshund, Fudge, screaming from outside on Sunday night and (obviously) ran outside to see what her dog was yelping about. Seeing as they were in Juneau, Alaska, it was highly likely that the cause was a bear. Although, bears don’t normally attack dogs, so she wasn’t really expecting that. Collins, only 22, took action immediately and started to run towards Fudge who was being held by the black bear, much like they would hold a salmon they were about to eat.
‘It had her kind of like when they eat salmon,’ Miss Collins said yesterday. ‘I was freaking out. I was screaming at it. My dog was screaming.
‘I ran up to it … I just punched it right in the snout and it let go.’
A blog reader (who I should thank) sent me in a video from One Minute News about the 25 Top CEO’s making a higher salary than the amount of taxes the companies they work for are paying. Although I have read this elsewhere, I was just so annoyed that I questioned whether I should even write about it because of how I may go off on a tangent. But, when I received that email I realized that I wasn’t the only one who was frustrated, so here it is.
“These CEOs are reaping awesomely lavish rewards for the tax-dodging they have their corporations do,” concluded the report from the liberal Institute for Policy Studies.
Tax shelters and clever accounting – 18 of the 25 have subsidiaries in offshore tax havens like Luxembourg – most of the companies actually got an average refund of $304 million instead of filling the federal coffers, the report says.
And their CEOs waltzed off with an average of $16.7 million in salary and bonuses, the group found.
“We have, in short, a corporate tax system today that works for top executives – and no one else,” study co-author Chuck Collins said.
ALHAMBRA, Calif. — The owner of a Southern California yogurt shop has been charged with attacking an employee, removing her clothes, binding her with tape and locking her in a box.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say Robert Yachen Lee allegedly attacked the woman Wednesday morning after luring her into an upstairs storage room at the Monterey Park shop. The woman blacked out. When she woke up she was naked, except for an adult diaper, bound with tape with a collar around her neck and lying face down in a box that had been placed in a soundproofed storage room.
The woman managed to free herself and call police.
Lee was charged Friday with kidnapping to commit rape and attempted murder. He’s being held on $10 million bail.

I really wish there was more to this story because I am left insanely confused. First of all, why the hell did he put a diaper on her? Was he planning on leaving her in there for awhile and didn’t want her to pee in the box? Because that just seems odd. I mean, kidnapping an employee, stripping them and keeping them as a pet in a box is pretty fucking odd too, but what purpose does the diaper serve?
Also, how was she bound? Because she was obviously able to get out pretty easily. Where were you while she was making this escape Mr. Lee? You kidnap someone and then just leave? I need to know more. I am unsatisfied, disturbed, and very confused.
Regardless, you’re a sick piece of shit and I hope to God that while you’re in jail on that $10 million (holy *%$*@&^$ shit!) bond, that you decide to come clean and answer some of the questions I have asked. And, I hope that you’re ass gets raped so hard that you’re forced to wear an adult diaper. Why? You tell me.
Yes, it’s true, despite the fact that he tried to say that the photos were photo shopped. De La Hoya is not admitting that the photos that he once denied were real, are in fact, photos of himself. First of all, it’s pretty damn obvious that these are not fakes, and quite hilarious that he would even attempt to say so.
The Smoking Gun brought light of this story:
Now that he is coming clean about his addiction to alcohol and cocaine, Oscar De La Hoya is also fessing up that he did, in fact, pose for a series of photos in fishnet stockings and assorted female undergarments.
In a new tell-all interview with Univision, the former boxing champion, 38, admitted that the photos, which were taken about four years ago, were authentic and that he did not want to continue lying about the matter. “Let me tell you, yes, it was me,” said De La Hoya, speaking in Spanish. “I’m tired of lying, lying to people, lying to myself.”
De La Hoya’s revelation comes three years after he used business associates, a cadre of high-powered lawyers, and the influential PR firm Sitrick and Company to threaten, smear, and bludgeon 23-year-old stripper Milana Dravnel, with whom he posed in some of the images.
When her eight-month affair with the married De La Hoya ended in late-2007, Dravnel sought to sell the photos, which were taken in a Philadelphia hotel suite where the couple trysted. That effort was met by a ferocious legal counterattack led by legendary L.A. attorney Bert Fields and his New York counterpart Judd Burstein.
