1) I often wonder what headline writers are thinking, such as in writing the headline to this story. The headline is: "Prolific child molester gets 150 years." Now, I don't know if I'm just being picky with my words, but that headline (it was one of the top stories on CNN.com) seems a bit odd. I thought prolific was generally a positive word, and I searched my Dictionary to find the definition.
adjective
1 (of a plant, animal, or person) producing much fruit or foliage or many offspring : in captivity, tigers are prolific breeders. See note at fertile .
• (of an artist, author, or composer) producing many works : he was a prolific composer of operas.
• (of a sports player) high-scoring : a prolific home-run hitter.
2 present in large numbers or quantities; plentiful : mahogany was once prolific in the tropical forests.
• (of a river, area, or season of the year) characterized by plentiful wildlife or produce : the prolific rivers and lakes of Franklin County.

So are they saying this guy is the Barry Bonds of child molesters? That seems to be a poor choice of words.

2) OK, so I saw this website a while ago, and I still can't decide if it is a hoax. Basically, it is a list of musicians to keep an eye out for if you are a parent, lest your child become gay. So there a few choices that don't really surprise me so much, given the source:

Village People
Queen
Elton John
The Indigo Girls
Boy George

But there are also some choices that I just find baffling:

Metallica
Jay-Z
DMX
Frank Sinatra
and my personal favorite...
Ted Nugent

Man, if Ted Nugent knew about this, he'd probably shoot this guy with a flaming arrow and then eat his carcass.

I always feel a tiny bit bad making fun of religious beliefs, even the craziest ones, but honestly, this is just comic gold. I was pretty sure this was a joke, but then I saw the guy's personal statements and whatnot, and he seems to be serious. Any thoughts? Is this a brilliant parody of anti-gay websites, or does this guy seem too weird to be fake?
