    SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA - A bizarre case of mistaken identity when a Virginia woman's wig is thought to be a child left in her car. Jasmine Turner says she went out to the store on her work break when she got a call from police about an unresponsive child in her car. "By the time I get from the Wal-Mart back to my job, the police aren't there, but the window's busted out of my car and there's glass everywhere," says Turner. Except Turner doesn't have kids. Turner says she left her wig on a pile of blankets in the backseat...

    2013 is ‘The Year of Cleopatra’ and ‘The Second Coming’. Michelle Obama’s new wig is a throwback to the the Cleopatra look that is supposed to be registering raves. “Conservatives have long joked that the national press corps see Barack Obama as the second coming of Jesus Christ. Today, Newsweek—at least what’s left of it, an online product for tablets and e-readers—made it official.” (Newsbusters, Jan. 18, 2013). Like the last sting of the scorpion before death, Newsweek gave its parting shot trying to immortalize Obama as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Portraying Obama as the Good Lord above...

    FORT LAUDERDALE —A Tamarac woman told a judge she stole someone's identity and spent nearly $20,000 in ill-gotten funds, largely because she needed to replace defective breast implants and furnish her condo. Shatarka Nuby, 29, offered that explanation to U.S. District Judge William Zloch on Thursday as she pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to use unauthorized devices, or credit cards, and one count of aggravated identity theft. Nuby faces up to seven years in prison when she is sentenced Nov. 16. "I feel bad for doing this," Nuby said. "I felt if it was someone in my family...

    About 15 tons of it on a recent day, imported from China, neatly pressed into mats and ready to ship to farmers and nursery growers who swear by the horticultural benefits of Blacker's hairy wares. The mats stored in southern Miami-Dade County are part of a world marketplace for human hair. Uses range from the obvious, such as false eyelashes and wigs, to the more obscure: it's a common raw-material source for l-cysteine, an amino acid frequently used in baked goods such as pizza dough and bagels

    Parents believe they have the right to decide what medical treatments are best for their children. But state lawmakers think otherwise because of a disease that has become both a feminist and a public health cause celebre. Across America lawmakers want to compel young girls to be inoculated against human papillomavirus (HPV) years before most become sexually active because there is a chance it can cause cervical cancer. Is replacing parental judgment with mandates by lawmakers and courts good for society?...... Legislators in at least 41 states and the District of Columbia have introduced legislation to require, fund or educate...

    TEHERAN: Iran successfully tested a "super-modern flying boat" yesterday and the land-to-sea Kowsar missile that military analysts say is designed to sink ships in the Gulf, state media reported. The tests came in the middle of the country's Gulf war games that started on Friday. State radio said the Kowsar could evade radar and that its guidance system could not be scrambled. The Defence Ministry was not immediately able to give details of a "flying boat" that was shown on television. The small propeller-driven aircraft floated on a trimaran hull until it took off and flew low over the surface...

    Rabbi Yosef Sholom Elyashiv, considered the top Halakhic [Jewish legal] authority in most religious Jewish circles, has added his name to those banning the use and benefit of all human hair wigs originating in India. The decision is based on confirmed reports that human hair in India is often shaved off for the purpose of idol worship practices, and is afterwards sold to companies that manufacture wigs. Although there is no certainty that any specific Indian-made wig is made of hair used for idol-worship, the widespread practice there means that each individual wig involves at least a "possible" violation of...

    INTRODUCTION: Many Patriots and FReepers just simply blend in with the crowd during rallies and other patriotic events. I have often wondered what could be done to seperate the "real" Patriots from the typical American. After much deliberation I cam to the conclusion of, Yes that's right, traditional Patriotic wigs. You can look like Mel Gibson in "The Patriot", or like George Washington. I have tried it. On first analysis you feel awkward and strange, but I'll tell you this, when I wear the wig, it seems that my statements become all the more believed. It must be some mental...
