News in Pictures October 9 October 15
Contest Directions: Create images of something that happened in the news from October 9, 2006 through October 15, 2006.
An example of a recent news story that could be used can be found here: It seems Jennifer Wilbanks, "The Runaway Bride", is suing her former fiance for defrauding her of her share of the proceeds from a book deal about their adventure. I don't know about you but I am a little confused by this whole story. First she argues over a vacuum cleaner and a ladder that her fiance took from their wedding gifts. I mean, what kind of person gives a ladder for a wedding gift? I can just hear the bride when she opened the giftwrapped ladder. "Oh thank you Aunt Pauline. This ladder will really come in handy when I want to crawl out a second story window." Now she is suing her fiance for buying a house. She seems to think she should get half of the house. I may be mistaken but this sounds more like a divorce settlement than the settlement of a wedding that never happened. My guess is she will next be suing some poor child in New Mexico for not giving her part of his lunch money. What I really think she should ask for in a lawsuit is a 5 gallon gas can and a new lawn mower and weedwhacker. She has a lot of community service to do mowing the court house lawn.
