A Las Vegas television anchor was arrested after being found asleep and naked in her parked car, with no memory of how she got there.

Feven Kiflegiorgis, whose on-air name at KVVU-TV is Feven Kay, was sentenced last week to a $1,000 fine and ordered to take driving lessons, reported the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

She was charged with reckless driving with a disregard for the safety of a person or property.

She was arrested at about 7:30 a.m. on March 20 after being found behind the wheel of her Audi, according to the report from the Metropolitan Police Department, reported the Review-Journal.

I was absurdly blessed in college.

I was introduced to existentialism at that time in a course "French Literature in Translation."

I consider existentialism to be the closest thing to my personal philosophy, and the handbook if you will is Camus' "The Stranger."

I was introduced to the writings of Camus, Sartre and others by my professir, who was a contemporary of Albert Camus who had spent time and IIRC even fought side by side with him against the Nazis in the French resistance in WWII.

Powerful stuff for a kid from the suburbs.

This stuff was common in the 60s. My 9th grade English teacher was a young girl in the underground in Holland during the war. My 11th grade literature teacher was in the forces that freed the death camps in 1945. My 10th grade math teacher was a German girl whose parents immigrated here in 1946 and she absolutely refused to discuss anything to do with World War II. In 1964 we had an assembly where they showed us a documentary about the death camps. Not only did she refuse to attend, she left school and didn't come back for a week and almost lost her job. She fought really hard against the school showing this documentary. I'm sure she did, it embarrassed the crap out of her.

Footnote to the Eager Beaver mods, this is not political this is historical. There is a difference.

I wouldn't do it if it was $500. Don't like vaccinations, I only had one in my entire life and I had no choice.

well, I oversold in the title - I didn't actually beat them - but I diverted them when they're snooping on me

whenever I'm logged in to one of their sites in another tab I search for stuff like this - feminine stuff that I could care less about:






how to make a delicious tuna casserole

where to buy a fancy hat to show off at the Preakness

how to learn macrame

how to teach your child origami

can you make money selling your embroidery on ebay?

where can I get a bra that fits me good because I'm small chested?

can you buy Nora Roberts romance novels in hardback at a big discount?

how can you meet a man on the internet that you can really trust?

are internet dating sites safe?

which do you think are the luckiest slot machines?

does your man respect you?

etc. etc. etc...........................








so now I get ads that I could care less about

it's pretty funny.................to me anyway
