Everybody laughed at her, but now People magazine has this seven question 'Miss S.C. Teen USA's Geography Pop Quiz' on their website. She's turning this 'mishap' into a way of earning some money. Seems she's not so dumb after all.

Human Rights Watch had called the news conference to release “Civilians Under Assault: Hezbollah's Rocket Attacks on Israel in the 2006 War,” a new 128-page report criticizing Hezbollah for its conduct during the 2006 war with Israel, in particular Hezbollah’s practice of deliberately and indiscriminately firing rockets toward Israeli civilian areas.
On September 6, Human Rights Watch is releasing in Jerusalem a report critical of Israel’s conduct in its attacks on Lebanon, a comprehensive follow-up to a report released during the war, titled “Fatal Strikes: Israel's Indiscriminate Attacks Against Civilians in Lebanon”.
A father who was too drunk to drive had his 11-year-old son get behind the wheel of his pickup and drive them home.
Police stopped the boy late Tuesday after he was seen driving the 1992 Chevy truck the wrong way on a one-way street.The boy's father was too drunk to drive and had told the child to drive them home.
The father pleaded no contest to charges of reckless endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor in connection with the incident. He was ordered to spend 15 days in jail and to take parenting classes. Though after at least 11 years as parent, likely a little too late.
The boy wasn't charged.
Grounds for the appeal are:
- the judge erred in allowing the Crown to introduce evidence of his sexual conduct after Ross was killed (masturbating by the side of the highway)
- the sentence was "harsh and excessive in light of the mitigating circumstances" ( he surrendered to and cooperated with police when they had no reason to arrest him)
- the judge failed to correct Crown prosecutor Kelly Wright's submission that one cannot intend or mean to cause bodily harm, and at the same time lose self-control
- the judge erred in refusing the defence request for a mistrial
Sometimes are judicial system is just a bloody waste of money.
Blake states that the city is not waging war against natural gardens and is naturalizing some city parks. He indicated that Ms. Dale's garden was not properly maintained. There was a dead raccoon in her garden that created quite a stench which she acknowledges.
He said Dale received two notices before the city took action, the second one delivered by registered mail.
He said the second letter advised Dale that if she didn't remedy the situation, the city would do it for her.
The letter also explained that she could apply for a natural lawn exemption, and had she done so, all action against her would have been stopped.
So there you have it. The other side's story.
UPDATE: A little more than a week after the native plant garden in her front yard was razed by Toronto bylaw officers, Deborah Dale says she has received letters from the city warning her backyard might be next.

A neighbour saw a toddler at the wheel and another toddler on the console. She said, 'Ma'am, are you letting your toddler drive?' The woman answered, 'Yes. He's a good driver.'"
Holly Schnobrich, 24, of Lafayette was also a passenger in the car. She's now in jail, charged with two counts of neglect of a dependent and one count of public intoxication. She is the mother of the five-year-old boy driving the car. Her three-year-old was also in the car.
He was on his knees saying he was driving mommy's car and having trouble reaching the pedal.
Well at least she understands the concept of a designated driver. Now she has to start using a licensed driver.
This incident raises all sorts of questions about cruising signals, congressional privilege, and the logistics of bathroom sex. But I found a site that answers some of these questions.
You won't see me tapping my foot in a public washroom.

So what will Senator Craig do next. Fill out my poll on the sidebar.
The will has been made public and Leona Helmsley left her white Maltese, named Trouble, a $12 million trust fund. She also left millions for her brother, Alvin Rosenthal, who was named to care for Trouble in her absence, as well as two of four grandchildren – so long as they visit their father's grave site once each calendar year.
Otherwise, she wrote, neither will get a penny of the $5 million she left for each.
Helmsley left nothing to two of Jay Panzirer's other children – Craig and Meegan Panzirer – for "reasons that are known to them," she wrote.
What kind of person leaves millions to a dog and nothing to her grandchildren?
And it it possible to marry a dog?
By the way Crocs announced this week that their stupid clientele would soon be able to buy shirts, shorts and skirts containing its trademark resin. Oh boy. More ugly clothes on the street.
The list of bizarre driving incidents goes on and on and on. No wonder it's so scary driving out there.

People don't seem to care much for the Prime Minister. It's probably a combination of his personality and policies. He is viewed as cold, stiff and controlling. He appears to close to President Bush is cannot be a good thing. He is also on the wrong side of a couple of issues - Afghanistan, Kyoto and medical wait times. It's difficult to say if this can be turned around. He may just have to take a chance and just call an election.
Whats he going to do turn up the thermostats at Queens Park in the summer to save money. Too late - it's already being done. Did he run Rogers Cable this way?
Neighbors recently alerted police about the corpse. The man told police he could not bear to move his mother and said he never again entered the room where she was seated.
A Toronto biologist who spent 12 years growing a natural garden on her front property is demanding compensation after the city chopped it all down. Complaints from neighbours were fueled by their belief that the garden was made up of weeds.

An Oklahoma City man has been charged with aggravated assault and battery, accused of causing extensive damage to another man's genetalia just because he wore a University of Texas shirt into a local bar.
Brian Thomas said Allen Beckett, whom he had never met, called him "everything under the sun” for wearing a Longhorns T-shirt into the bar. Thomas said he decided he'd had enough after about 20 minutes of Beckett's abuse so he went to the bar to pay his tab. When he turned around, he said Beckett grabbed his crotch and refused to let go.
Boys will be boys.
L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is reportedly conducting an investigation into possible child abuse coming from Britney Spears. An unscheduled hearing went down this morning with Kevin Federline's and Britney Spears' lawyers.
Meanwhile, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals rapped up its investigation into Britney Spears' dog, and has decided Britney did nothing wrong ... well, at least when it comes to her dog. The dog did fracture his leg -- but does have a cast. The incident occurred when someone (no word on who) stepped on the dog's leg while walking into a closet.
Look out for this train wreck! She destroys everything in her path!
The academics found that it is the ratio between hips and waist that puts the sway into a woman’s walk - and the nearer that ratio is to 0.7, the better. This ratio provides the body with the right torso strength to produce a more angular swing and bounce to the hips during the walking motion.
Therefore, a woman with a 25in waist and 36in hips would have just the right proportions to carry off a sexy swagger as she walks.
After killing off its Mickey Mouse-lookalike, Hamas has turned to another Disneyesque character — televising a cartoon with a "Lion King" wannabe to portray the Islamic group's victory in the Gaza Strip over the Fatah movement.
Last week the location was revealed in a religious newspaper and literally within hours the place was set on fire. Firefighters indicated there were signs of forced entry and arson.
