We Read the Courant, So You Don't Have To (2nd ed.)

It's that time again. We thought we would check in with the Courant and see what's happening in "journalism" today. We'll make this as quick and painless as possible. If you want it the sexier way, by all means, read the actual Courant.

1. This guy...

...paid his 8-year-old son $1 to swear and use racial slurs on a video for YouTube. He titled it "Swearing Kid." The man was charged with "Impairing the morals of a child". His hair was charged with "having a party in the back AND the front." His beard was charged with "harboring fugitives."

2. This lady...

...admitted to stabbing her diasbled son 35 times. (Her hair was let off with a warning.)

3. A man in a wheelchair escaped from a group home in WeHa and rolled down a nearby hill to his death. (We'll let you decide if this is sad, hilarious, or both.)

4. Friend-of-the-blog John Mertens is taking a little vacay from campaigning for Senator to go to Burning Man. The Courant didn't really know what to make of this.

5. Two women were arrested for forging truck driver's licenses. Their fake company, Affordable CDL, claims to be the "cheapest and best commercial driver's license school in Connecticut." Cheapest? Best? Sign me up.

That, apparently, is all the news that's fit to print. Sigh.
