The good...

From Robin William's HBO comedy special. Very funny. Talking about aging. But if you haven't seen this special I recommend it. It's awesome, in it's entirety, and on the link bars there's more. I just picked one randomly, but they're great. He's wonderful.



And now for something not so wonderful. -----

The bad.

A PEDOPHILE who raped a 10-year-old girl will be free in just four months after a British judge said his victim had "dressed provocatively".---

Window cleaner Keith Fenn, 24, could have been jailed for life after twice attacking the girl in a riverside park.
Judge Julian Hall was at the centre of a storm over the "pathetic" sentence he imposed after hearing the girl had appeared much older than her age.
The same judge caused uproar earlier this year by setting free another paedophile and telling him to give his victim money "to buy a nice new bicycle".
In the latest case, Oxford Crown Court heard harrowing details of the assault on the 10-year-old. She was attacked in a park in South Oxfordshire by Fenn and his accomplice Darren Wright, 34, on October 14 last year.
Fenn removed all her clothes and raped her, then Wright took her to his home and sexually assaulted her.
Yet Judge Hall said the case was exceptional because the "young woman" had been wearing a frilly bra and thong.
The girl has been in local authority care since the age of four.
She was on her own when she met the pair in the street. They went to the park together. The judge said he faced a moral dilemma.
The court heard that the girl regularly wore make-up, strappy tops and jeans.
"It is quite clear she is a very disturbed child and a very needy child and she is a sexually precocious child. She liked to dress provocatively," the judge said.
"Did she look like she was 10? Certainly not. She looked 16."
He gave Fenn concurrent two-year and 18-month sentences but he will be free in just weeks after spending eight months in jail awaiting sentence.
Wright is a free man because he too had served eight months on remand.
Yesterday Dr Michele Elliott, of Kidscape, said: "This is beyond pathetic, it is utterly derisory. For the judge to say that the way she was dressed in any way excuses a 24-year-old man having sex with her is disgraceful and ridiculous."
Fenn admitted two counts of rape of a child under 13 and Wright admitted one charge of causing or inciting sexual activity with a child aged under 13.
