THIS HAPPENS FAR TOO OFTEN

A custom, functional replica of a 1966 Batmobile, complete with a working flamethrower, is at the core of a legal spat between a Bay Area real estate agent and an Indiana minister — a spat that may have illicitly involved Bay Area sheriff's investigators flying halfway across the country to conduct a raid.

BLOGSITE ISSUES

We are aware that the blogsite is loading v-e-r-r-r-r-r-r-y slowly, and we are doing all we can to correct it. And by “doing all we can,” we mean “not actually doing anything, unless you count hoping that it gets better.” Also of course judi will be fired.
