NJ School Trying To Fire Crystal Gunns
An aide at a New Jersey elementary school and a local YMCA is described by one parent as "an excellent role model," but others say someone who played the roles the woman has shouldn't be working with young children.

It turns out that Louisa Tuck, a cafeteria and playground aide at D'Ippolito Elementary School in Vineland, N.J., used to be an adult film star who went by the name of Crystal Gunns.

She was hired as a part-time aide in June, but school officials learned about her past only recently.

When district officials found out, according to ABC News Philadelphia affiliate WPVI-TV, they talked to their lawyers about what they could do but they were told they didn't have any cause to fire her.

A district lawyer reportedly said that there was nothing illegal about Tuck's Web site, photo spreads and movies.

Nothing illegal? Anyone in New Jersey ever heard of child endangerment? I mean this woman is literally nude all over the internet. I'm all for anyone whose serious about making up for past mistakes, but if she's sincere why would she choose to work around kids?

Myanmar Court Gives Comedian 45 Years For Helping Cyclone Relief

Myanmar's courts continued a crackdown on activists Friday, handing out a 45-year prison sentence to a comedian who went to the delta to help cyclone victims and criticized the junta's slow relief response.

Comedian and activist Zarganar, whose birth name is Maung Thura, was among at least 100 people to receive sentences of two to 65 years since early November. Many of the trials were held in closed sessions, sometimes without defense lawyers or family present.

The military government's wave of harsh sentences has been condemned worldwide by Western governments and human rights groups. They contend that the sentences make a mockery of the ruling junta's professed plan to restore democracy with a 2010 election.

The government holds more than 2,100 political prisoners, up sharply from nearly 1,200 in June 2007 — before last year's pro-democracy demonstrations, according to international human rights groups.

Monks inspired and led protests that the army violently suppressed in September 2007. The authorities began their crackdown by raiding several monasteries in Yangon in the middle of the night and hauling away monks.

Damn, guess the next time I hear somebody complaining about free speech in this country I can send then a copy of this story.
