In May of this year, Charla Nash received a full face transplant at Woman’s Hospital of Boston. A team of 30 doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists worked for 20 hours to perform the extremely rare procedure - the third time the surgery had been performed there.

  In 2009, Nash was attacked by Herrod's 15-year-old chimpanzee, Travis, after Herrod called and requested her help in getting control of Travis, who was having an "off" day.   When paramedics arrived, they found that Travis had ripped off Nash’s entire upper jaw and nose, and had chewed off Nash’s fingers, shredding both of her hands.  Travis was killed by police on the day of the attack.

Warren Jeffs Guilty

The Prairie Chicken

Warren Jeffs finally is found guilty of raping two "child brides."  The penalty could be up to 119 years, 99 years for sex with the 12 year old and 20 for the 14 year old, if maximum sentences are given to be served consecutively.  The judge could be lenient, but we are talking about Texas.  The best I believe will be the judge allowing the sentences, what ever they may be, to be served concurrently. 

Why would these dimwits choose Texas, anyway?  I don't even exceed the speed limit when I'm in Texas.  They just don't fool around.  There are 400, give or take, people on death row and they actually execute around 15 every year. 

Here's hoping for a long sentence for this guy.  Life in Texas prison.  oh my...
