The LA Times is Anti-Catholic?
News Busters sez "cheap slap at Catholics" to a feature in today's LA Times (reg. required), printing this quote from The Times' coverage of Erotica LA:
Payne, who earns $250 an hour, was about to demonstrate the fine art of spanking, which — contrary to what you might think — is not as simple as it looks. The hand should be cupped, not flat, she explained, and positioned on the lower part of the buttocks, never at the top, never on the leg and never ever near the tailbone. "If your husband went to Catholic school," the 32-year-old Payne said with a sly smile, "he's probably secretly dying for it."
+ Oh, Frisco: Man found with 80 rabbits
+ Congratulations LA Press Club winners -- especially LA Voice, Los Anjealous, and Hit & Run, who placed first, second, and third respectively in the "Weblog - Group" category (which we suddenly have our eye on).
Kudos to LMU who placed one-two in the "Best Website - Online Only" category with Christine Palma's Echo in the Sense and Ben Sullivan's Science Blog.
+ Congratulations Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
+ Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. MacManus-Costello on your bun in the oven
+ Congratulations "A Socialite's Life" for getting hold of a picture from Brangelina's baby shower as it got passed around like a hot potato. Weird, since it's probably the best picture we've seen of them in quite some time.
