Monday freak grab bag

Get a load of this first story, courtesy of my eldest daughter. 29 year old Neil Havens Rodreick II tried to enroll in middle school, posing as a 12 year old. It gets better. Neil was living with two men who apparently believed him to be a 12 year old boy; one of them, the hilariously named Lonnie Stiffler, presented himself to school officials as Neil's grandfather. Oh, and Neil is a convicted sex offender, and cops arrested his former Oklahoma cell-mate when they raided his house. This story is like, a 6-layer cake of wrong.

Moving right along, Bawb the Revelator, head of this blog's Dream City bureau, tipped me to a strange incident at the Atlanta airport. I'll let the headline of this next story speak for itself:

CDC Adviser Arrested for Urinal Incident

One wonders if there's some type of Joycelyn Elders defense for government officials caught in such circumstances.

Two repulsive stories embedded with mirth - quite a feat!

well they say life is stranger than fiction. I can't believe those people said they are upset that they had sex with an 29 year old and not the 2 year old boy!!!! I hope they rot in Jail - I am sure they'll have fun last time I checked inmates do not like pedifiles

One more reason that the CDC is the devil.

The only redeeming qualities I can think about for these guys is the fact that reading about them makes me feel a lot better about my own life.

Why is the CDC the Devil? The guy's a freak, sure, but why does that have anything to do with the CDC? He just works there, crazy people work everywhere.

The CDC is a corrupt government organization that is in the back pocket of drug firms. The fact that this yutz works there is somehow not surprising. Yes, crazy people work everywhere, but I'm guessing they have extras. I'm not saying all of their policies are wack, but often they are biased more than an impartial health organization should be.

And this is based on.....?

Experience in their dealings with both breast cancer and autism. Time and time again they drag their feet and refute evidence that has been presented to them before they change policy that could save lives or make lives better. Evidence was available to them regarding mercury in vaccines way back in the early 90's, but it took them almost a decade to create a policy that would prevent drug companies from putting it in vaccines. The same can be said for hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer.
