HA, We may have had this conversation in the past (you know, dead brain cells and all), but I have never heard anyone else use this expression. I use it all the time. And now both of my kids (ages 19 and 22) say it. Of course, I had to explain to them where it was from... but whatever...

Really? I remember it from watching Bugs Bunny when I was a kid. There was one cartoon where he said, "What a maroon, what an ignoramus".

Quote:‘Balloon boy’ parents sentenced to jail time
‘Very, very sorry’ dad to see 90 days behind bars; mom gets 20 days

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34574260/ns/...d_courts//

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The parents who carried out the balloon boy hoax were sentenced to jail Wednesday and given strict probation conditions that forbid them from earning any money from the spectacle for four years.

Richard Heene was sentenced to 90 days in jail, including 60 days of work release that will let him pursue his job as a construction contractor while serving his time. His wife, Mayumi, was sentenced to 20 days in jail.

Richard Heene choked back tears as he said he was sorry, especially to the rescue workers who chased down false reports that his 6-year-old son had floated away in a balloon on Oct. 15. It was a stunt designed to generate attention for a reality TV show.

“I do want to reiterate that I’m very, very sorry. And I want to apologize to all the rescue workers out there and the people that got involved in the community. That’s it,” said Richard Heene, whose wife did not speak at the hearing.

Larimer County District Judge Stephen Schapanski then ordered Heene to begin a 30-day jail term on Jan. 11, delaying the start of the sentence for two weeks so he can spend the holidays with his family. Schapanski allowed Heene to serve the remaining 60 days of his jail term under work release, meaning he can work during the day but spend his nights in jail.

No profits allowed
The Heenes’ probation will be revoked if they are found to be profiting from any book, TV, movie or other deals related to the stunt.

“This, in simple terms, was an elaborate hoax that was devised by Mr. and Mrs. Heene,” the judge said.

The Heenes pleaded guilty to charges that they carried out the balloon hoax, with deals that called for up to 90 days in jail for the husband and 60 days for his wife.

Schapanski ordered Mayumi Heene to serve 20 days in jail after her husband completes his sentence. Her time served is flexible — she can report to jail on 10 weekends, for example — so the children are cared for, the judge said.

Prosecutors asked for the maximum sentence for the husband, saying that a message needs to be sent to promoters who attempt to carry out hoaxes to generate publicity. Chief Deputy District Attorney Andrew Lewis also asked for full restitution to reimburse authorities for the cost of investigating the hoax — an amount that could exceed $50,000

“People around the world were watching this unfold,” he said. “Mr. Heene wasted a lot of manpower and a lot of money in wanting to get himself some publicity.”

Argument to stop copycats
He added, “Jay Leno said it best when he said, ’This is a copycat game.’ And people will copycat this event. (The Heenes) need to go to jail so people don’t do that.”

He portrayed the Heenes as growing increasingly desperate as their pitches for a reality TV show kept getting turned down by networks — and the family fell deeper into a financial hole. Lewis said the Heenes set in motion the balloon hoax in early October as a way to jumpstart the effort and get some attention.

They chose Oct. 15 because the weather was cooperating and the kids were home for school with parent-teacher conferences, allowing the Heenes to report that 6-year-old Falcon had floated away, Lewis said.

Once the parents were brought in for questioning, Richard Heene feigned sleep during the lie-detector test, claiming it was some sort of diabetic episode, Lewis said.

David Lane, Richard Heene’s attorney, pleaded for leniency with the judge and said that the couple “have learned a lesson they will never forget for the rest of their lives.” He also said that if someone has to go to jail, let it be Richard Heene and not his wife.

“That is his plea. That would be something of a Christmas miracle if that can occur,” he said.

On Monday, sheriff's officials said the two adult Heenes had acted alone.

Police examined three laptop computers, several hard drives, video cameras and tapes seized from the Heene home in Fort Collins in their investigation.

Some of the costs broken down
Sheriff's officials are also tabulating the costs of the search, with the expectation of getting reimbursed from the Heenes, and so far the total is more than $40,000.

They estimate their department spent about $8,000 in overtime. Some $13,500 more was spent by law enforcement agencies from the nearby communities of Greeley and Weld County, along with Colorado State University and the U.S. Forest Service.

Two National Guard helicopters launched to track the craft and possibly attempt to rescue the couple's 6-year-old son, reportedly inside the balloon, cost about $16,000.

Also included in the estimate are $8,500 in damage to the field where the craft landed. Emergency vehicles rushed onto the field, and a police officer sprinted through it trying to catch up with the balloon.

The Federal Aviation Administration, for its part, recently said it conducted its own civil investigation and determined the Heenes launched an unauthorized aircraft and are subject to an $11,000 fine.

Officials rerouted planes around the balloon's flight path and briefly forced some planes to switch to a different runway for takeoff from Denver International Airport.

Madoff treated for facial fractures, broken ribs
From WPVI Channel 6 News:

DURHAM, NC -- WPVI's sister station, WTVD Durham-Raleigh, is reporting that Bernie Madoff was treated for serious injuries consistent with an assault.

Sources told ABC11 the disgraced financier was treated at Duke hospital in Durham last Friday and discharged earlier this week.

He is serving a life sentence at the federal prison in Butner.

According to sources, he had facial fractures, broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

Prison officials won't confirm that. They say the 71-year-old is in the medical clinic at the prison in Butner.

Madoff admitted to cheating investors out of billions of dollars. A judge sentenced him to 150 years earlier this year.
A county jailer in Florida has been fired after telling investigators he was an officer of the Ku Klux Klan.

An internal affairs report by the Alachua (ah-LAH-chu-AH) County Sheriff's Office says Detention Officer Wayne Kerschner defended the KKK as a faith-based organization.

Kerschner told investigators that he blogged on a KKK Web site, attended a rally in Tennessee and paid dues to the United Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He said his wife was also a member.

Kerschner was fired Wednesday for violating a department ban on subversive or terrorist organizations. He had worked four years at the jail in Gainesville. A phone number for Kerschner could not be found Thursday.

The investigation started after a tip from a sheriff's deputy working on an FBI investigation.

HA!

I lived in Gainesville for several years. At one point when I was there (in the mid-90's) the Grand Poobah (or whatever the fuck you call him) of the KKK considered moving there because the university provided a rich picking ground for recruits.

I think the locals persuaded him to ultimately change his mind.
CHATTOOGA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -- The mother accused of tattooing her own children invited Eyewitness News inside her home today to set the record straight.

"We were making it look like it was a cross," said Jo-Jo Marsh, "so the kids could have something they could say it was."

Jo-Jo Marsh shows Eyewitness News the tattoo on her son's hand. The mark is a cross-like symbol left by a home-made tattoo gun with a guitar string as a needle.

"We didn't even break the skin barely," said Marsh, "they are very tiny, just through a few layers, on the top, they will fade away, that's how minuscule this is."

Marsh and her husband, Jacob Bartels, face child cruelty charges after detectives found the same mark on six of the couple's seven children. One of the children is just 10 years-old.

"There was a seven year-old child that they determined was too young for the tattoo at this time," said Chattooga County Sheriff John Everett.
The couple's 17 year-old has a larger tattoo on the arm. Marsh admits her husband used the gun to draw it too, but insists she tested it first to make sure her children were not harmed.

"These tattoos are so minuscule, they will fade away," said Marsh.
We asked Marsh if she knew it was illegal to tattoo children in the State of Georgia.

"Oh God no," she responded, "that's why I was tripping so hard, that's why I was so upset."

Marsh defends her actions saying the kids were begging for tattoo's like her's.

She told us multiple times during our interview that she changed the needle each time.

Marsh believes as the children's guardian, she should have the right to tattoo them if she chooses.

"Shouldn't I have say so over what goes on in my child's life," said Marsh, "I have custody of my child, I'm not going to hurt my child."
