Former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger could soon see some of his belongings, including a replica 1986 Stanley Cup championship ring, on the auction block.
The 84-year-old Bulger was sentenced this month to life in prison on dozens of charges, including murder and money laundering, after being tipped off by his former FBI handler of an impending indictment and spending more than 16 years as a fugitive.
This, of course, completely stymies my idea for a new History Channel venture- Mob Pawn. I guess it also could have been the best episode of Storage Wars ever, as it could be the first such "war" to feature real gunfire...
Elwood, a New Jersey Chinese crested/Chihuahua mix crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007 (he was 2006's runner-up) passed away Thanksgiving morning at the age of 8.
The only question left in my mind...what does Nicki Minaj's ranking move up to by default, cause if she ain't already in the top 5, Elwood's demise oughta get her there.
Three unpublished stories from reclusive U.S. author J.D. Salinger have been leaked online, from an unauthorized 1999 book that sold on eBay, Internet news source BuzzFeed reported on Thursday.
The stories, "The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls," "Paula," and "Birthday Boy," are currently held in research libraries at the University of Texas and Princeton University, appeared as a PDF scan from the book.
The story "The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls" is seen as a prequel to "Catcher in the Rye," and is only available at the Princeton library to scholars who are supervised by library staff. Under terms of the arrangement, it cannot be published until 2060.
Yeah, it's a bullshit move to leak stuff like that, but the way things are "leaked" in this day and age, at least it wasn't a sex tape. Or would that have been "Caught Her in the Eye?"
