I get the impression that some local government will object to or do something themselves just to justify their existance :roll:

Meet the head of Arizona's public school systems...an avowed right-wing racist too cowardly to post his bigoted social media comments using his own name.

What an idiot! Doesn't even have the guts to say those things under his own name - presumably for fear of losing his job. That the gods that all Arizonans are not like this pratt who has no cojones.

I haven't got an article to link to (and it's just as well), but yet more disgusting allegations have been made about Jimmy Savile, according to the news I watched this morning. Not only did he abuse patients at Broadmoor, amongst other places, but apparently...well, let's just put it delicately, and say that apparently he liked to visit the mortuaries as well, and leave it at that. :text-tmi:

This left me speechless...with relief and a mild restoration of faith in the justice system.

http://www.skynews.com.au/news/top-stories/2014/07/01/harris-guilty-of-12-indecent-assault-charges.html?cid=BP_CAROUSEL_NEWS_rolf-harris-guilty_010714

Seriously, I thought he was going to get acquitted. I thought fame would help him get off.

Here's the scary thing, though. On the news this morning, apparently some girls who appeared on some dancing or talent program decades ago were told to avoid being alone with Harris. Which goes to show, how long did some people know about this? :|
