a little bit of everything

All in the name of who?!

I'm speechless!

I just read this on South Coast Journal.

Via Crooks and Liars: After admitting that he and a co-worker punished eighteen pre-teen boys by making them lay down on their beds and shoving a broom stick into their backsides, 19-year old camp counselor Clifton Bennett will avoid doing any prison time.

It seems his father, Arizona State Senator Ken Bennett (Republican of Prescott), wrote a letter to the Yavapai County District Attorney handling the case informing her that his son could not rightfully serve time in jail, as he is preparing to leave the country to teach the word of Christ to youth around the world.

And the D.A. went for it. "This is hardly the work of sexual predators. Rather, it is the work of two young men repeatedly making poor decisions." She said in a written statement.

Wow. The party of family values, indeed.

Outraged? Call the Senator's district office (602-542-5584) and/or the Yavapai County Attorney's office(928-771-3344).*

I am not a religious person, but I'm pretty sure Christ, or any other higher power, would frown upon people using his name to get out of such heinous acts. Senator Bennett and the District attorney should be ashamed of themselves for using both religion and their power as a shield from the law!

*If you choose to contact either office try to be as civil as possible. While it may be difficult it will make your statement much stronger.

Adorkable adj. extremely charming, cute, nerdy, intelligent, worthy of being adored.

Why lust after a hot guy when you're much better off with an adorkable one? Anyone can be born with great looks and athleticism. It is much more impressive to be cute, charming, intelligent, and a little nerdy.

For the past couple years the entertainment industry has had an insurgence of adorkable actors and musicians, and many of us our falling in love.

If you're still at a loss for who exactly could be considered adorkable I'll give you some examples, however ultimately it's all in the eye of the beholder. Here is just a small sampling of the adorkable ones:

Adorkable musicians: John Mayer, Josh Kelley, Jack Johnson

Adorkable actors: Jake Gyllenhaal, Zach Braff, Adam Brody, Andy Samburg, T.R. Knight

Like I said this is just a small sampling, if I've left one of your favorites off I apologize, but feel free to share. Who is the most adorkable guy in the entertainment industry? People magazine can keep their sexiest man alive, I want to know who the most adorkable guy alive is.
