An adult-entertainment company wants Foxy Knoxy to take a paltry sum of money to extend her 15 minutes of infamy. Has porn hit moral rock bottom?
How much would you pay to see a reasonably attractive, twice-convicted murderer be gang-banged by a bunch of apes in the adult entertainment industry?Days after an Italian appellate court upheld Amanda “Angel Face” Knox’s guilty verdict for murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher in 2007, a porn company in California offered Foxy Knoxy a paltry $20,000 to debase herself on camera.

The governor has declared a state of emergency for 89 counties as a wave of “crippling ice” befalls much of The Peach State in a storm the National Weather Service warns, “may be of historic proportions.” This statewide IcePocalypseMageddon occurs a little more than a week after Georgia’s last devastating ice storm, when the National Guard was called in to aid thousands of people stranded in their homes, vehicles, and schools.

Most of America cheered and the NFL outwardly heaped on the praise with a glowing public statement.

To smuggle 500 kilograms of Mexican cocaine in frozen fish from Guyana to Italy would require as many as 5,000 fish.“They put a hundred grams, two hundred grams in each fish,” an alleged conspirator named Franco Lupoi was recorded saying.And then there’s the question of recovering it all.“It takes a day to defrost and then it takes a day to take out,” Lupoi says on the recording.The alleged conspirators were still ready to go ahead and even bought a fish wholesaler in Italy before deciding it might be easier just to hide the stuff in pineapples and charcoal.
With access to Edward Snowden’s treasure-trove and four months to prepare, the new magazine got scooped by the 168-year-old Associated Press on the world’s biggest drone story Monday.
The Intercept has landed—but with a bang or a thud?Given the four-month drumroll preceding Monday’s launch of the first in a series of digital magazines planned by First Look Media—eBay billionaire Pierre Omidyar’s $250 million journalism startup—the attendant fanfare has been predictably noisy, with scores of news outlets in the United States and abroad welcoming the new kid on the block.But the day’s big headline concerning America’s mushrooming espionage and national security apparatus—the new mag’s stated focus—was generated not by The Intercept but by the Associated Press, the 168-year-old news cooperative.
