Trivia Question from Yesterday

Cerberus was the giant three-headed hound that guarded the gates of the Underworld. What is the name of his two-headed brother?

      Orthrus                                                      Source

Orthrus or Orthus was a two-headed dog in Greek mythology.

Orthrus is a two-headed dog who is a doublet ("brother") of Cerberus, both whelped by the chthonic monsters Echidna and Typhon.        Source

Alan J was first, and correct, with:

  A song about a two headed dog, but probably a different one.

  You see, Orthrus and his master Erytion were owned by the three-bodied giant Geryon

  and were supposed to guard Geryon's herd of herd of RED CATTLE

  in the "sunset" land of Erytheia.
  Heracles (Hercules) slew Orthrus, Erytion, and Geryon and took all the red cattle to complete his tenth labor.

  Boy... talk about living in your brother's shadow, hunh?
  I mean, Cerberus guards the gates of HELL

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Another Wandering Wolf Arrives


Another wandering wolf has found its way to the Cascades of southwestern Oregon, where OR-7 has established his pack after trekking thousands of miles in search of a mate.

An automatic trail camera snapped a photo of the new wolf in timberlands west of the Klamath County community of Keno, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist John Stephenson said Tuesday. The camera was set out by an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist after he spotted a track in the snow in December.

The arrival of another wandering wolf confirms that the animal continues to spread widely across the region after being reintroduced in the Northern Rockies in the 1990s.

"I am surprised to see another wolf unrelated to (OR-7's) Rogue pack down in that area so soon," Stephenson said. "It does suggest some sort of dispersal corridor (through which) they are making their way over to that part of the state. But we have no way of knowing. We have a number of long-distance dispersers out there that aren't collared. Even though it appears this one is staying in this area, I don't think we completely know it will stick in that area or keep moving around."

The blurry photo taken Jan. 5 shows a grey wolf trotting down a gravel road past a stand of tall pine and fir trees. Though it does not show the animal's head, it is clear from the body that it is an adult, Stephenson said. He adds that though it is grey, like OR-7, they know it is not him because his GPS tracking collar showed him far away at the time.

TV Series For Amazon

Woody Allen

Director Woody Allen will make his first foray onto the small screen, writing and directing an online series for, the latest coup by deep-pocketed cable and streaming companies in luring the biggest names in film to television.

The Internet retailer rolled out the news of Allen's series on Tuesday, two days after winning its first major awards at the Golden Globes following years of experimentation with streaming original programming.

Allen, 79, who has said he doesn't use email or own a computer, is a big win for Amazon, which is trying to lure more viewers to its Amazon Prime business with original TV programming by hiring well-known writers and directors.

Allen's yet-to-be titled series will be a half-hour, Amazon said, adding that casting announcements would be made in the future.

Allowed More Room

Mexican Wolf

Rare wolves in the American Southwest will be allowed more room to roam but some could be marked for death if they prey too heavily on elk and deer prized by hunters, under a rule issued by federal officials on Monday.

The rule revising management of the fewer than 100 wolves in Arizona and New Mexico stems from legal challenges by the non-profit Center for Biological Diversity, which argued U.S. wildlife managers failed to properly protect the so-called Mexican wolf.

The federal government's new management plan for the endangered Mexican wolf, which is one of the most imperiled mammals in North America, enlarges the acreage it can occupy without relocation and expands the area where captive wolves can be released into the wild, according to a statement from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

U.S. wildlife officials also declared the Mexican wolf was a separate subspecies to the gray wolf found elsewhere in the United States. That ensures Mexican wolves would not be included in a proposal by U.S. President Barack Obama's administration to remove gray wolves in states outside Alaska from the federal endangered and threatened species list.

California Links 26 Measles Cases


California has confirmed more cases of measles in people who visited Disneyland or its adjacent California Adventure park last month, health officials said on Monday, raising the number of infected people to 26.

A total of 22 cases in California have been linked with visits to the Anaheim parks between Dec. 15 and Dec. 20, including one that arose from direct contact with an infected person, the California Department of Public Health said.

Additionally, two cases have been confirmed in Utah and one case has been confirmed in both Colorado and Washington state, the department said.

Four other possible measles cases are currently under investigation, the department said, adding that six of those who were sickened were eventually hospitalized.

In 2013, more than 70 percent of global measles deaths were in six countries - India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.



Wake-up Call


Family Feud


One of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s sons declined to say Tuesday whether his father's 1964 Nobel Peace Prize medal and traveling Bible would be sold if a judge rules they belong to the civil rights icon's estate.

The Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc., which is controlled by his sons, last year asked a judge to order King's daughter to surrender the items. King's three surviving children are the sole shareholders and directors of the estate. In a board of directors meeting last year, Martin Luther King III and Dexter Scott King voted 2-1 against Bernice King to sell the artifacts to an unnamed private buyer.

Bernice said in February that her brothers' plan to sell two of their father's most cherished items was unthinkable.

Dexter, the only one of the three siblings to attend Tuesday's hearing in the case, spoke to reporters afterward. Asked directly whether the items would be sold if the estate wins the case, he responded, "I can't say at this time."

Indicted Un Driving Charges

Flavor Flav

Rapper Flavor Flav is due in a Long Island courtroom later this month after being indicted on charges stemming from a traffic stop while driving to his mother's funeral.

Court documents show the rapper, whose real name is William Drayton, was indicted last month on a felony charge of driving with a suspended license. He also faces a speeding violation and two misdemeanours for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

A spokesman for Nassau County acting District Attorney Madeline Singas (SIHNG'-uhs) declined to comment. The spokesman confirmed that Drayton has a Jan. 21 court appearance. Drayton's attorney, who has been seeking to reach a plea agreement, declined to comment.

The rapper-reality TV star from Roosevelt, New York, was arrested Jan. 9, 2014, on the Meadowbrook Parkway.

Trusts Poland

Roman Polanski

Filmmaker Roman Polanski says he hopes Poland won't extradite him to the U.S. where he is wanted in a 1977 sex case.

The Oscar-winning director is in Poland, preparing for a movie.

The U.S. justice authorities recently asked Poland to arrest and extradite Polanski, who has Polish and French passports. Polish prosecutors refused to arrest him, but are planning to question him.

Polanski told TVN24 on Tuesday that "I will submit myself to the procedure and we will see." He added: "I have confidence in Poland's justice system."

President Sworn In Despite Losing Re-Election


The president of the Navajo Nation was sworn in Tuesday to continue as the tribe's top leader - even though he badly lost his re-election bid.

That's because the presidency on the country's largest American Indian reservation is in limbo over an election that hasn't been scheduled. As a result, Ben Shelly will remain president until the mess gets sorted out.

Shelly's inauguration was low-key and closed to the public and media. He didn't give a speech or outline priorities for the indefinite time he and Vice President Rex Lee Jim will serve, said his adviser, Deswood Tome.

Tribal lawmakers were sworn in during a public ceremony in Fort Defiance that was broadcast live online. Speakers at the event hardly mentioned the presidential election that was thrown into turmoil after Chris Deschene, one of the winners in last August's primary, was disqualified in a language fluency case.



Arrest Warrant "Mistake"


An Idaho prosecutor said he made a mistake requesting an arrest warrant for a 9-year-old boy held in custody for three days after being accused of stealing a pack of gum.

Kootenai County Prosecutor Barry McHugh said Monday that his office should have instead sought a child protection investigation that would have led to a more informed decision.

First District Court Judge Lansing Haynes authorized the warrant requested by McHugh's office after the boy twice failed to show up in court.

Post Falls Police Chief Scott Haug said the child missed court because relatives had no way of getting him to the courthouse. The child was taken into custody on Jan. 6.

"Had we known (the missing court dates) was a transportation issue, we could have gotten the child a ride to court," Haug said.

Not All Life Is Sacred

Damages Cut

A federal judge has cut by more than two-thirds the damages awarded to an Indiana teacher who was fired by a Roman Catholic diocese for trying to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization.

Monday's decision by U.S. District Judge Robert L. Miller Jr. dropped Emily Herx's $1.9 million judgment in her civil rights lawsuit to just under $544,000.

A federal jury in Fort Wayne found last month that diocese officials discriminated against Herx, who had taught at a diocese school, when they declined to renew her contract in 2011 because she had undergone IVF in hopes of having a second child.

The diocese said the church teaches that IVF is gravely evil and never justifiable. In vitro fertilization involves mixing eggs and sperm in a laboratory dish and transferring the resulting embryo into the womb.

Herx's attorneys argued that male teachers were not fired after they were accused of violating the church's moral teachings when they were ejected from a strip club for groping an employee.

Damages Cut


Improvements Sought For New Mexico

D.H. Lawrence

A northern New Mexico ranch where novelist D.H. Lawrence once sought spiritual renewal is working to reshape itself after being closed for six years and facing a number of needed renovations.

Taos groups like the D.H. Lawrence Ranch Alliance, Friends of D.H. Lawrence and elements within University of New Mexico are helping to raise funds for the ranch, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Lawrence was a visionary who extolled natural sensuality and thought modern life was robbing people of the ability to experience the quality of life. His most famous novel is "Lady Chatterly's Lover," a novel first published in 1928 about the sexual and emotional relationship between a rich woman and a working-class man.

According to preservation advocates, Lawrence and his wife, Frieda, made summer visits in 1924 and 1925. Even after Lawrence's 1930 death, the ranch still hosted many famous visitors like author Willa Cather and artist Georgia O'Keeffe.

The ranch- including a cow shed built by Lawrence himself - is on the National Register of Historic Places and the New Mexico State Register of Cultural Properties. Frieda, who died in 1956, bequeathed it to the university with the stipulation it be used for educational and cultural purposes, and that the memorial be open to the public.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
