Phil Garrido: God cured me

Phil Garrido, the kidnapper of Jaycee Lee Dugard, is claimiong that God cured him. Which seems rather odd for a man who kidnapped and then raped a woman for a period of 18 years really.

EVIL Phillip Garrido yesterday appeared to apologise for the kidnap and rape of Jaycee Dugard - and said his sexual deviancy had been cured by Jesus.

In fact, it seems that his sexual deviancy was cured by something a great deal more prosaic: getting caught.

For of course he did not reunity Jaycee with her family, did not free the children, until he had indeed been caught. Which would seem to indicate that that might have had something to do with it.

The Moel's Trade

There aren't all that many people who know what a moel does....he's he guy who carries out the circumcisions in an Orthodox Jewish community.

Now, leave aside such religious reasons and ponder whether we should be routinely using circumcision in the rest of the world?

We know that it does reduce the liklihood of getting certain diseases and cancers. But on the other hand, there's a thought that it reduces sexual pleasure by reducing sensitivity.

It's worth clicking through one of those links to see that the latter argument is false: circumcision almost certainly increases the sum of sexual pleasure precisely via that reduction in sensitivity.

You Have to Wonder

What on earth possessed the woman to do it? Wendie Ann Schweikert I mean? Are there actually any jollies to be had by a 37 year old woman having sex with an 11 year old boy?

I understand (although do not share) the male desire for the post pubescent...that's when women are at their most fertile and there's good evolutionary reasons for the attraction, even if we culturally disapprove of them.

But what on earth would make Wendie Ann Schweikert find a completely inexperienced, virgin even, boy, sexually attractive?

The Election of the Living Dead

No, that's not a description of the average Labour Councillor (although it would be an apt one):

A villager is campaigning in northern India for the rights of people declared legally dead by cheating relatives seeking to steal their assets.

Lal Bihari, a lower caste villager who lost his father's inheritance due to an unscrupulous uncle, formed the "Union of the Dead" in 1980 to fight for the rights of thousands he says have fallen victim to scams by relatives.

He is contesting as an independent in a month-long election in Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, which ends on Tuesday.

In 1976, an uncle allegedly connived with corrupt local officials to fudge village records and declare Bihari dead. The uncle then won the inheritance of Bihari's father.

"It was only as late as in 1994 that I succeeded in proving myself alive," Bihari, 52, said.

Like many poor in India, it was very hard for him to get a court ruling to reverse the decision, due to corruption and a backlog of millions of cases in the judiciary.

"Nearly 3,000 others are fighting their independent battles in other parts of U.P. (Uttar Pradesh) to prove that they are alive," Bihari said.

Imagine, a politician standing for election on a reasonable and honest platform. As likely as zombies themselves, ain't it?

Phil Spector Murder Trial

Phil Spector's muder trial is due to start on Mondayin LA:


The murder trial of pioneering rock producer Phil Spector finally begins on Monday, more than four years after a B-movie actress was found shot to death at his castle-like mansion outside Los Angeles.

The trial, delayed repeatedly since Spector was indicted in 2003, will be shown on live television amid fascination with the 1960s musical genius turned recluse who once described himself as having "devils that fight inside me."

Fifty news organizations applied for a seat in the Los Angeles courtroom for the biggest celebrity trial since pop star Michael Jackson's 2005 acquittal on child molestation charges.

I really don't think he's going to get off you know, life without parole is what I expect as the sentence. Rich white guys just don't get the death sentence.
