You'll remember Heath Campbell, the New Jersey neo-Nazi who gave his children German names, lost custody of them, then thought wearing a Nazi uniform to court would be a good way to get them back? He's going to be a daddy again!Heath Campbell, 40, and his fiancée Bethanie Rose Zito, 22, told NYDailyNews.comthat they will find out the baby's gender next week. They already have two names lined up.If they have a boy, a potential name being floated is "Rommel," after Erwin Rommel, a high-ranking German military official in World War II. The couple told the Daily News a girl would
Yesterday, in the asterisk to the headline of this post, we noted that nobody ever finds Jimmy Hoffa, no matter how close they think they're getting — even though officials thought they were getting close in Michigan yesterday.We just got this breaking-news email from CNN:Which reminds us of this:They're never finding Jimmy's body. Never. Bank on it.
FBI says no remains found in latest search for Jimmy Hoffa, but the case remains open.
CBS 3 reports that City Council will begin its probe today into the deadly Salvation Army building collapse that killed six people and injured 13 others:And as lawsuits stemming from the collapse are filed by victims, an official says the city is immune from financial liability.Even if city regulations on demolitions were lax, it is considered unlikely that City Hall could be held liable in any of the lawsuits that result from the building collapse, because of the principle of sovereign immunity.“The city is immune from suit for tort liability except in eight specifically enumerated circumstances,” notes the mayor’s top
Via Ronnie Polaneczky, we get the testimony of John Bruhns, a former Philadelphia parole officer who really wanted to send people back to prison for violating their parole—and almost never got to. His story's a bit chilling. An excerpt:In order to obtain a warrant to detain a parolee for technical violations, a parole agent must first receive authorization from his/her supervisor. For my first two years working with the agency, it was quite difficult for me to convince my supervisor to authorize warrants for offenders who violated their parole. In fact, my supervisor would often allow parole violators under my
Remember Jimmy Hoffa? Of course you don't! The last time the Teamster leader/mobster crony was seen alive—by somebody not stuffing him into the trunk of a car, presumably—it was 1975, and disco still didn't have a firm foothold on the American psyche yet. Then he disappeared. At this point, he's been famous for being an unsolved mystery far longer than he was famous for being a labor leader.Perhaps the mystery is closer to being solved. CNN reports:The FBI -- working on information from an aging reputed mobster -- began digging in the waist-high grass of a Detroit-area field Monday in yet another
So over the weekend, Kim Kardashian had herself a baby. Kim tweeted that her as-yet-unnamed child is a “miracle,” which of course she is, because all babies are miracles. The baby’s daddy, Kanye West, delivered an album, Yeezus, which he recorded in France while Kim was stateside, waxing large with child and finalizing the finale to her two-and-a-half-month marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries.I wish the new parents all the best. But I’ve got my fingers crossed for that little girl.
Thinking of ways to spice up the lame Father's Day celebration you've got planned? Want to make watching the U.S. Open tolerable? Whatever your weekend plans, take a page out of Gwen House's book.Not just that, folks! She apparently had four--yes, four!--bottles of prescription pills in her bra at the time, which "police believe were consumed [in] conjunction with the alcohol." [Limerick Patch]
The Royersford woman faces multiple charges, including simple assault, after she allegedly guzzled all the Jell-O shots at her mother’s birthday party and then topped it off by beating the birthday girl.

And there are real teeth to the ban, too, as AP reports:Hindsight will soon be punishable by a $25 fine in this Jersey Shore resort.Wildwood passed a law Wednesday night banning overly saggy pants on the boardwalk, prompted by numerous complaints from longtime visitors about having to see people's rear ends hanging out in public.Subsequent violations of the law, which could take effect as early as July 2, could result in fines as high as $200, and 40 hours of community service.Reuters adds:Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said the city was addressing dozens of complaints from visitors over the years, but
