[not again], Teacher has sex with student
A Strongsville, Ohio couple will not be tried on charges that they covered up a high school teacher's sexual affair with their teenage son.
Steven Bradigan, 20, said his relationship with 39-year-old Christine Scarlett began when he was 17 years old and a junior at Strongsville High School.
In June, a grand jury had previously indicted Lawrence Bradigan, 53, and his 52-year-old wife, Mary. Officials said the couple will enter a court "diversion" program that will erase the charge if they meet certain conditions.
Christine Scarlett, 39, allegedly held a win a date with a teacher contest, and took Bradigan to Dairy Queen. Bradigan said Scarlett then made a move on him in the parking lot of a Strongsville mall.
Bradigan said a sexual relationship followed, but his family and his attorney said when the incident was reported, the school district did little to pursue an investigation. Article here.

Mayor gives entire town free Viagra
The mayor of a small Brazilian town has begun handing out free Viagra, spicing up the sex lives of dozens of elderly men and their partners.
"Since we started the free distribution of sexual stimulants, our elderly population changed. They're much happier," said Joao de Souza Luz, the mayor of Novo Santo Antonio, a small town in the central state of Mato Grosso.
Souza Luz said 68 men over the age of 60 had already signed up for the program, which was approved by the town's legislature and has been dubbed "Happy Penis," or "Pinto Alegre" in Portuguese.
But the program has also had the unforeseen consequence of encouraging some extra-marital affairs, Souza Luz said. "Some of the old men aren't seeking out their wives. They've got romances on the side," he said.
To discourage such illicit canoodling, Souza Luz said the city had decided to begin distributing the Viagra pills to the wives of the men who signed up for the program. "That way, when the women are in the mood, they can give the pills to their husbands," he said. Article here.

O.J. Simpson show, 'I did it' has been canceled
After a firestorm of criticism, News. Corp. said Monday that it has canceled the O.J. Simpson book and television special "If I Did It."
"I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project," said Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. chairman. "We are sorry for any pain that his has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson."
A dozen Fox affiliates had already said they would not air the two-part sweeps month special, planned for next week before the November 30 publication of the book by ReganBooks. Simpson told The Associated Press in a phone interview, "I would like nothing better than to straighten out some things that have been mischaracterized. But I think I'm legally muzzled at this point."
In the projects, Simpson speaks in hypothetical terms about how he would have committed the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend Goldman. Article here.
