Porn? Unacceptable. Cussing? Unacceptable. Murdering people with bombs? Fine.

Besides being a great headline this is a good roundup of the mess in Texas

A tax cheat, a disbarred attorney, and an attempted firebomber: meet the folks trying to collect on Texas’ abortion bounty law.

Btw this is the juicy bit from that Michigan bomber story

In late August, Allen is accused of placing threatening letters inside polka-dotted envelopes that were addressed to AT&T, Verizon, and “all other carriers” at various locations in northern Michigan, according to an FBI affidavit filed in federal court obtained by The Detroit News. The letters, which were sent from the “Coalition for Moral Telecommunications (CMT),” threatened to “begin destroying inner city tower communication” unless the providers created software to stop the spread of “immoral content.”

Guess he raided his wife’s stash of stationery

Some people come here purely for a dry recitation of Great Headlines, Kosmo, and in their busy lives, they can't be delayed for a few seconds having to wade through our "thoughts" about the Great Headlines.

I get it and can see pointing out some key points in the story...but then maybe it goes to the Random thread, or the sky is falling thread

I feel like the key here is, it doesn't really matter the content of the article, it's just headline is the Dog’s Bollocks...those should go here
