  • Jennifer Lawrence Deserves Justice not Sympathy

    Townhall ^ | 09/13/2014 | John Nantz
    Storing indiscreet photos in the “Cloud”is stupid. Jennifer Lawrence and a long list of other Hollywood starlets, models, and personalities must certainly now agree. The dust has settled somewhat surrounding the criminal hacking of Apple’s iCloud and the subsequent theft of nude photos stored there by a naive group of female celebrities. It’s easy to see that a crime has been committed and any rational person must agree that the perpetrator ought to be brought to justice, on this point there really is no debate. However, this incident is pregnant with irony. In monotonous unity and with the tempo of...
  • A jargon-free guide to the celebrity nude-photo scandal and the shadowy Web sites behind it

    It’s a late entry, and a sad one, but the trove of stolen celebrity nudes that hit Reddit like a bomb over the weekend may just qualify as the Internet story of the summer. After all, it’s the perfect Internet scandal: sex, Bitcoin, shadowy hackers and long-reigning Internet darling Jennifer Lawrence. And yet, the ongoing incident — which the FBI has said it’s investigating — is far more than a tawdry tabloid story. It also raises a lot of profoundly important issues about technology, security, privacy and power in the digital age. There are practical implications, as well: The leak...

    There has been a lot of very good discussion on yesterday’s blog post on the banishment of “dirty dancing” at many school dances. Much of the discussion has centered on modesty. Modesty is a beautiful, essential and often diminished virtue in today’s “tell-all,” ”show-all” world. There are many good definitions of modesty. Websters dictionary defines modesty first as freedom from conceit or vanity and secondly as propriety in dress, speech or conduct. It is the second definition that concerns us. While the Websters definition of modesty is surely accurate I would like to say that the most beautiful and thought-provoking...

    Wisconsin authorities thought they could curb libidos at the state's nude beach by closing it on weekdays, but citation data shows the move just shifted the hanky-panky to the weekends. The Department of Natural Resources issued 13 citations at the beach between June and early October this year. All were for sex, and 11 were issued on weekends. Those numbers are down from 2012 totals, but wardens said the problem is far more prevalent than the numbers suggest. All the citations were issued during just seven days of surveillance and some people seen having sex ran off before wardens could...

    Meet Taylor Powers. The college student, 21, had to be rescued yesterday afternoon off a Colorado mountain after she ingested mushrooms, stripped off her clothes, and scuffled with two classmates with whom she had been hiking. After receiving a 911 call that a female hiker was “high on mushrooms and in distress,” Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies and other assorted rescue personnel (35 in total) responded to Chautauqua Park. Powers, seen above, was located by a park ranger who discovered that the University of Colorado undergrad had “removed all of her clothing and was being restrained” by two male companions....

    Nudists will need to cover up or limit where they show their bare buns after the Board of Supervisors voted 6-5 to pass a ban on public nudity. Supervisors Jane Kim, John Avalos, Eric Mar, Christina Olague and David Campos voted to oppose the ban. Campos argued that police resources could better be spent fighting violent crime, instead of tracking down naked men roaming the streets. Other supervisors argued the ban seemed to infringe on people’s right to express themselves and was merely a problem in a Castro that didn’t need a citywide ban. The ban still requires a second...

    An upstate woman came a little unglued and went strolling naked through a lumber shop and a convenience store as if she didn't have a care in the world, police said. Employees at Curtis Lumber in Ballston told the Albany Times Union that Barbara LaFleur, 49, casually chatted up employees and asked what time it was before sauntering out Tuesday. "Have a good day," LaFleur breezily told lumber yard workers, according to the newspaper. The woman then stopped by a nearby Stewart's convenience store, where employees were less than amused by her impromptu peep show.

    (FOX 25 / - Republican Senator Scott Brown made a crack about Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s physical appearance on a radio show Thursday morning. According to the Boston Globe, the senator was responding to a crack Warren made during Tuesday's debate. When Warren was asked about Brown using his centerfold spread in Cosmopolitan magazine decades ago to pay for college, she said she “didn’t take her clothes off” to pay for school. When the WZLX disc jockey asked Brown for a response, he said "Thank God," which elicited laughter from the DJs. Read more:

    I’ve been avoiding this topic just because the arc of the debate is so predictable. First comes the outrage from the left, eager to help Warren get a sympathy bump in the polls by casting her as the victim of sneering frat boy Scott Brown. Then comes the pushback from the right, intent on recovering any inch of lost ground by reminding the left that she took the first shot in sneering at Brown’s appearance years ago in Cosmo. Then the left has a fainting spell at the idea that the right would defend this horrible, horrible woman-hater, and then...

"To help pay for his law school education, Scott Brown posed for Cosmo. How did you pay for your college education?" a student asked all the candidates during the "lightning round" phase of the questioning. Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren was the first to reply: "I kept my clothes on," she replied, evoking audience laughter and applause. "I borrowed money." Warren added that...

    “Thank God” is right. Finally the Massachusetts Senate race is starting to get interesting. No, not the primary — that’s over and done. Obedient Massachusetts Democrats will do as they’re told and nominate the party bosses’ pick, Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Warren. I’m talking about the battle royale, Scott Brown vs. Elizabeth Warren which has turned, literally, into a “beauty contest.” It began at Tuesday night’s Boston Herald debate when Warren was asked how she paid for college. In reference to Brown posing for Cosmo, Warren quipped, “I kept my clothes on.” Gales of hearty liberal laughter ensued. Then, yesterday...

At one point, she rolled on to her back and spread her legs before continuing her crawl, the report said. As...

    A new PETA advertisement featuring model Joanna Krupa wearing nothing but a crucifix and a seductive smile is "totally inappropriate" and exploitative of Christian symbols, critics say. Krupa, a Playboy cover girl and a "Dancing With the Stars" regular, is seen topless and bottomless in the latest spot by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which urges people to adopt pets from rescue shelters instead of buying them from puppy mills. The Polish-born beauty appears in the ad with angel wings behind her and a digital halo over her head. Her private parts are covered -- barely --...

    Talk about prime exposure. Nearly 400 people at two county nudist clubs skinny-dipped simultaneously yesterday. At precisely 3 p.m., 267 people took to the pool at Pine Tree Associates in Crownsville and another 123 entered the water at the Maryland Health Society in Davidsonville. "It did really fill up the pool," said James Richards of West River, a 17-year member of Pine Tree. "There was cheering and laughter; lots of hoorahs and hurrays." The local clubs were joined by nudist groups across the country and in Canada in an effort to set a simultaneous skinny-dipping record that would be recognized...

    I don’t want to sound like a Prude – because I’m not. And I’ll admit that I haven't even seen the "The Proposal." (It’s rated PG-13 – and doing great. It was number one at the box office this weekend) But, some wonder if a PG-13 rating is what it used to be. Is PG-13 - what used to be considered R? I know ...

    Santa Clara County agrees to pay $1 million in lawsuit over Naked Guy's suicide To many, Luis Andrew Martinez was simply the Naked Guy — a Berkeley fixture who gained national notoriety in the 1990s for refusing to wear clothes. About 10 years later, on May 18, 2006, isolated and alone in a Santa Clara County Jail cell, Martinez — a diagnosed schizophrenic — tied a plastic bag around his head and killed himself. Today — on the third anniversary of his death — lawyers for his family plan to announce a $1 million settlement reached with Santa Clara County,...
