Page 1 Consider (12/14)

  • Get Someone Else to Bend It: Victoria and David Beckham like threeways with strippers? (L.A. Rag Mag)

  • Dumbass Alert: Did you hear about the teacher in Roxbury, Conn., who barricaded herself inside a classroom when she mistook a school custodian's impromptu after-hours karaoke performance of a Guns N' Roses song over the public address system and thought she was being threatened? (AP)

  • News Briefs: Wanna know who won Armani Exchange's underwear model search? (Towleroad)

  • Bi Curious: A Denver television station reports that Web postings believed made by Matthew Murray, the young man who killed four people at two conservative Christian missionary centers on Sunday, shows he was bisexual, possibly gay. The postings were made on a Web site for people who had left evangelical churches and were made under a nickname. The administrator of the site notified police when he saw them but too late to stop the killings. Murray wrote that he told his mother: "Using drugs, alcohol and having gay sex, I'm just trying to do what any Christian pastor would do. At least I'm not doing meth like Ted Haggard." (365Gay)

  • 'Roid 'Rage': This "explosive" report on the widespread use of steroids in Major League Baseball is such a joke and doesn't really tell us anything we didn't already know. The league never made rules against using performance-enhancing drugs; all the players used them; everyone started to play better; everyone got rich with the game suddenly being so much more exciting; everyone knew they were doing it and liked getting rich so didn't do anything to stop it. Any other questions? (NYT)

  • Hookergate: Police issued arrest warrants Wednesday for four men accused of trying to extort money from married former Washington state legislator Richard Curtis, who resigned his post after an affair with one of the accused became public. I wonder if Curtis' red negligie was turned over as evidence. (AP)

  • Sunday Night Fever: Brian Bergdoll is a much-in-demand John Travolta impersonator. He doesn't look anything like him -- and I'm guessing that's why. (NYT)

  • Malpractice: A jury has awarded $2.5 million in damages to a woman who received HIV treatments for almost nine years before discovering she never actually had the virus that causes AIDS. (AP)
