scene of the crime: Update

I finally found out what happened back there.

Teens found partially clothed, disoriented in South Brunswick.

So, were they just drunk/high? Did someone violate them? Scary stuff!

scene of the crime

I woke up this morning to the sound of helicopters outside my bedroom window. There were two just hovering over the back of my townhouse development. I thought there might have been an accident on Route 1.

Later on, as I was walking Barry, one of the kids waiting for the school bus was taking pictures of the choppers with his cell phone. That's when I noticed the police tape.

Police Tape in my backyard
What the hell? There was a police car parked in front of the tape. I asked what was going on, but he got all coy. "You gotta watch the news."

"Is is bad?"

He just shrugged and gave me a goofy look. DAMN! I want to know these things.

So I hurried Barry along and as soon and he pooped, I turned him back to go home. I went from local news channel to local news channel hoping to find some of the aerial shots, or at least a story of what was going on. Nothing. I went online to the local news stations and the local paper for any breaking story developments. Nothing.

This is going to bother me all day? Is there a bear on the loose? A psycho killer? Is there a body found along the creek?

Must. Find. Out.

All grown up


Why is the Vanity Fair shoot with Miley Cyrus such a big deal? I mean really, there was no boob, no crotch shots, and people are walking the streets of Main Street, America with less clothes on.

She didn't pose for Playboy, or even those second rate mags like Blender or Maxim. She had Annie Leibovitz as her photographer, for chrissakes!

What pisses me off, is not so much the media scrutiny, but that Miley pussed out and said that she was embarrassed about the photo shoot. Sure, she's only 15 and still a little girl. But it would have been a perfect opportunity to stand up to the media and own up and stand by her decision (and her dad's, and managers, and all the other handlers she has).

Poor form, Miley. You could have had the best of both worlds, but you blew it.
