• Kidnapped teen was gang-raped, killed and fed to gators

    A teenager who vanished from Myrtle Beach, SC, in 2009 was repeatedly raped in a gang “stash house” for several days - then she was shot dead and fed to alligators when her disappearance generated too much media attention, the FBI said last week. The shocking new details about the mysterious disappearance of 17-year-old Rochester, NY, native Brittanee Drexel came largely from a “jailhouse confession” that was subsequently substantiated by others with “tidbits” and “secondhand information,” FBI Agent Gerrick Munoz testified in a federal court transcript obtained by the Post and Courier of Charleston. The inmate who gave the alleged bombshell confession, Taquan Brown, is serving a 25-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in a different case. Brown told authorities he was present during the final agonizing moments of Drexel’s life, Munoz said.

  • A letter to my breadwinner husband

    My dearest Bill, The other day, around 3:00pm on a random Wednesday, I was headed to the grocery store to get something to make for dinner. As you know, I’ve been slacking on the food front for some time and can’t seem to get organized the way I used to. Remember when I would go through our cookbooks every Sunday and plan the meals for the week, and then shop once for the entire week? I know, I know, I always made a second trip; but still, the bulk of the food was in the fridge. I did that for more than a decade, but it was such a monotonous task I can’t bring myself to keep up with it. So now I play ‘catch as catch can’ and, as you like to say, shop like a French woman who goes to the store

  • What the Hell Is Going on in Colorado?

    Out in Colorado, incumbent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet was supposed to be one of the more endangered Democratic incumbents this year. However, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll, the man is cruising by 16 points. There is a reason for this. That reason is named Darryl Glenn, and he's the latest indicator of how The Base that the Republicans have cultivated so tenderly over the past 40 years can guarantee equally a primary upset win and a general election blowout loss, especially in presidential election years. Now, though, to the list contained Sharron Angle and Christive O'Donnell, we can add the name of Darryl Glenn. In June, to the enormous credit of himself and his staff, Glenn,

  • Here’s the real secret to losing weight and staying thin (Hint: You’re not going to like it)

    “The Biggest Loser” study that went viral left most people, especially those looking to lose a little weight, feeling discouraged, disillusioned and even sad. Some may have deleted MyFitnessPal from their phone, or opted not to reach for the kale at the grocery store, thinking, “What’s the point?” So when Olivia Ward, who won the show’s 11th season, and sister Hannah Curlee, who came in second place, say the study is “encouraging,” you may be surprised. ‘Nobody talks about how, after you lose weight, it’s 10 times harder to keep it off than to take it off.’ After all, researchers following up on Ward and Curlee’s fellow contestants six years after the show found most gained back a “significant”

    Mariska Hargitay lost it on the NYC set of “Law & Order: SVU” last week. “They were shooting on Ninth Avenue, and she was yelling, ‘Did you get that?’ to a crew member. The guy responded, ‘No,’ and she went apes - - t,” a spy said. “She was saying, ‘When I do these, you have to make sure you get this.’ She was in a full NYPD police vest and was running down the street out of nowhere yelling at this guy.” A source close to the show, however, told us, “It’s her on-set shtick. This is her joking around with the camera guys . . . They’ve been working together for 18 years.”

  • Woman catches Mississippi's longest alligator on record

    PORT GIBSON, Miss. -- A Vicksburg woman has caught Mississippi’s longest alligator on record from public waters. Tiffany Wienke tells The Clarion-Ledger that she and her party of six hunters could tell from the gator’s head that they had spotted a big one Saturday night in Claiborne County, near Port Gibson. “There were a ton of people and we tried to get away from them,” she told The Clarion-Ledger. “We were just trolling through the water scanning bank to bank.”   Wienke says the gator managed to break both lines after a long struggle, but the hunters were able to hook the reptile again after it surfaced about 20 minutes later. In total, it took the hunters nearly two hours to secure the gator,
