America's paper money --the venerable greenback --is no longer going to appear all green, getting a tad more colorful, part of a broader effort to thwart sophisticated counterfeiters. The Treasury Department's Bureau of Engraving and Printing, which makes the nation's paper currency, debuted the new $20 in a public showing Tuesday.

James got his tongue split in December by a piercer after a surgeon declined to do it for him. He says the piercer used a scalpel heated by a blow torch and no anesthetic. Some say the practice, still relatively uncommon but edging up in popularity, is nothing short of mutilation. Lawmakers in Illinois are considering regulations that would all but outlaw it.

In addition to being the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world, in June of 1998 'Mr. Stinky' was the first Amorphophallus titanium plant to bloom in the United States since 1939. Originally thought to die after blooming, this Titan is the first in the United States to put on three spectacular, smelly showings and has grown to seven feet and one inch. The titan is known for its intensely powerful stench that lasts for over eight hours. (Marc Serota/Reuters)

My thoughts too... As soon as prisons are run as prisons should be run, the threat of incarceration will mean something again.

AMEN!!!! I'd like to add Why does he get three drinking glasses? Count them. There are three stacked in his hand. Looks to me that he could do witout a meal or two already. If they want to cut down on costs....reduce the portion sizes.

Now if that fellow can get the 2 halves of his tongue to work independently he's gonna be real popular with the ladies. If not, he's an idiot.

When the typical bleeding-heart liberal whining started, his exact quote (IIRC) was, "If it's good enough for our troops in the Gulf, it's a damn sight better than what these prisoners deserve!"

Meets prison standards
- Why is he not wearing striped or orange prison garb?

General prison garb will be orange jumpsuit, demin blues, or white shorts and T-shirt. It's cheap, and non-inmates (guests, volunteers, etc.)are not allowed to wear this. Then in an emergency, it is easy to sort out who is who.
