Some Advice for General Petraeus

My advice to you: Your husband is deep in it and the public is not going to be kind. No need to write an angry Facebook screed or a hateful blog post. You can take the techie high road, but no one would blame you if you signed him up for a bunch of gay porn e-mail lists.

To Cheaters:

Seriously, y'all, what is your problem? Have you not learned that texts, e-mails and posts on social media will eventually get you busted? Divorce attorneys LOVE digging into your stuff. What they can't get access to — without a private investigator or a wire tap — is what you say to someone in person or on the phone. You remember talking, right? It's that thing you do when you aren't typing. Give it a shot.

My advice to you: I mean, sure, stop cheating. That's a given. But, since so many of you appear hell bent on acting like utter morons, do all of us a favor and keep your virtual genitalia in your technological pants.


Mad Revenge
Dad's girlfriend plants gun in his son's backpack.


A gun scare at a junior high school earlier this month apparently was not the brainstorm of a disturbed teen, but instead the twisted revenge scheme of his father's girlfriend.

According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, on November 5, constables moonlighting as school security got a phone call tipping them off that a 13-year-old eighth grader had come to school with a pistol in his backpack. They were able to track down the kid and seize the unloaded gun.

The teen was hauled into an office for several hours' questioning, and ultimately, finally, the police believed him when he said he had no idea how the gun came to be in his backpack.

Tracing the phoned-in tip was the constables' next move.

They tracked the call to a convenience store not far from where the boy lived. Once there, they reviewed the store's surveillance tapes and saw that the call had been made by a woman in her twenties.

That led them to 26-year-old Heather Hodges, the live-in love of the boy's father. At first, Hodges attempted to deny making the call, but reportedly changed her tune on being confronted with the video evidence. She allegedly confessed to planting the gat, dropping the kid off, and then phoning in the bogus tip.

Hodges has been charged with two crimes: carrying a weapon on restricted premises and transfer of a handgun to someone under 18 years of age. She was already on probation for a theft charge from Conroe last year, and is now being held in the Montgomery County Jail with bonds set at $20,000.
