    "Nurse Nasty," "Wicked Doctor," "The Prison Matron" … not the usual way to introduce yourself, but in the leather-clad world of sadomasochism, naughty is nice. And pain is pleasure. "I need stimulation and get a terrific high from playing rough," said Allena Gabosch, 52, a Seattle-based "bottom," meaning she's the one on the receiving end of spanking. The buxom, tattooed, alternative sex activist finds pain play very seductive but, "I still ask for Novocain at the dentist's office." While most couples don't need whips, paddles or ropes to get in the mood, a minority find sadomasochism, or S&M, erotic. They...

    The parents of a 13-year-old foster child who made her bring food to a dead man who lay rotting in their Clark home pleaded guilty Tuesday to elderly neglect and child cruelty. Kenneth Keaveney and his wife, Donna, pleaded guilty in state Superior Court, admitting that Donna's father was left to rot upstairs for weeks before being found on the floor of a room littered with flies, maggots and dog feces. Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow said the plea ends any doubts as to what happened to Nicola Lombardi, whose decomposed corpse was discovered nearly mummified in the August...

    Tortured Animals Not Dogs Tests results are back on three animal carcasses found skinned inside Sioux Falls city limits. Earlier this month, animal control officers found the bodies of the three animals in a field near Southeast Technical Institute. Initially, pathologists said they were tortured dogs. But, there is an end to the canine controversy. New test results reveal that the bodies are not dogs, but instead red foxes. The canine confusion began when three animals were found dead and skinned in this field in Northwest Sioux Falls. A local vet first looked at the bodies, said they were dogs,...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A 72-year-old woman collapsed in court on Tuesday after a jury convicted her of animal cruelty toward more than 230 Chihuahuas and 60 birds she kept in squalor at her southern California home. Emma Regina Harter, who was also convicted of lesser charges of battery on an animal control officer, unsanitary conditions and failure to isolate sick animals, was treated in the courtroom by paramedics and released, prosecutors said. She was ordered to return to court on Friday, when she faces a possible sentence of five years in prison. Authorities raided Harter's home, which was caked...

    What strange times are these that we argue over whether to dehydrate to death a living human being. But thanks to medical technology that makes gods of beings unworthy, here we are. The Florida case of Terri Schiavo, 13 years in a "vegetative" (but wakeful) state and the subject of warring factions concerning her fate, is a nightmare in anyone's wolf-stalked night. Simply distilled: Her parents want to her alive; her husband wants her dead. Terri collapsed in 1990 from unknown causes and became severely cognitively disabled. Husband Michael has been trying for years to remove his wife's feeding tube...

    A circuit court judge today denied a last-ditch effort by the parents of a disabled woman to reinsert a feeding tube that was disconnected by her husband. Supporters of Bob and Mary Schindler said the writ of mandamus would direct Gov. Jeb Bush to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo. Leon County Circuit Court Judge Jonathan Sjostrom quickly rejected the writ. Randall Terry, the anti-abortion activist who has taken up the Schindlers' cause, said the legal move was made by the Schindler's attorneys in hopes it would give Bush legal standing to intervene. The governor has been sympathetic to...
  • Youths beat, and stab dog

    The Enterprise ^ | Sept 19 '03 | Maureen Boyle
    <p>Youths beat, stab dog By Maureen Boyle, Enterprise staff writer BROCKTON — Youths beat and stabbed a 2-year-old dog at Edgar's Playground, leaving the wounded pooch to inch its way home to Brook Street a few houses away. Pug, a shepherd-husky mix, was found stunned and whimpering by its owner, Howard White, on the family's front porch Wednesday after the brutal attack and is now recuperating at a West Bridgewater veterinary clinic. "It is sad to think someone could be so cruel," said White's wife, Susan. Howard White said he returned from grocery shopping about 4 p.m. Wednesday to find Pug and the family's other dog, Rocky, outside and a person who witnessed the attack waiting for the family to return. White said the witness told him at least two youths were seen kicking and beating Pug at the park. White, who did not get the witness' name, is now trying to locate the person and anyone else who may have seen the attack. The witness said the attackers "were tormenting" Pug while the family's second dog, a 7-pound Pomeranian, barked at the men's feet, White said. "They started kicking him and hitting him," he said. White said the dogs were confined to the family's yard, but the smaller dog apparently dug under the fence to escape and Pug followed. Pug appeared stunned standing on the porch, but began experiencing breathing problems once inside and en route to the emergency veterinary hospital in West Bridgewater. "I just kept thinking, 'Don't take him from me,' " White said. Pug was taken Wednesday night to New England Animal Medical Center in West Bridgewater, which offers after-hours emergency animal care. The dog remains there today. Colleen Kelley, a veterinarian at the center caring for Pug, said the dog suffered a single stab wound to the upper side and there are fears there could be a tracheal tear. She said there was some air in the dog's central cavity and there are worries it could increase, causing breathing problems. Surgeons are being consulted to see if Pug needs surgery or if simply closing the wound will be enough, she said. Kelley said she has seen a number of animals abused recently by strangers, including a number who have been shot. The Humane Society of the United States reports there is no firm numbers on how many animals are abused yearly, but, based on cases it has studied, adult and teenaged males commit a higher percentage of intentional animal cruelty. Of cases the group has studied, 5 percent involved an animal being stabbed, 16 percent involved beating, 11 percent involved torturing and 20 percent involved an animal being shot. White said he hopes witnesses will come forward to help authorities identify the suspects before another animal is harmed As he gently petted Pug at the animal hospital Thursday, White said he is still stunned someone could attack his dog. "He is so gentle," said White, a retired postal worker. "Everyone who knows this dog loves him. He would not hurt anyone."</p>

    "War is cruelty. You cannot refine it." That's what Union Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman told Atlanta officials in 1864. But the U.S. armed forces during the past month routed both Iraq's army and nearly 140 years of military doctrine. Sherman was a military innovator, consciously going against the tradition of not waging war on civilians. During 1863, his forces in Mississippi pillaged and burned towns. In 1864 in Georgia, he ordered his men to "burn 10 or 12 houses of known secessionists, kill a few at random, and let them know it will be repeated every time a train is...
