Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Not odd but disgusting

Some Yahoo odd news from Brazil. While this news may sound funny, I'm sure it isn't to the victim. She may feel as if she was violated like in rape. Twenty years ago something similar happened to the teenage daughter of a friend of mine at Subic Bay in the Philippines. It wasn't funny to the teen or her parents.

SAO PAULO, Brazil - Assailants wielding a knife and a pair of scissors attacked a young woman walking home from church and cut off most of her waist-length hair, police said on Monday.

A man and a woman grabbed 19-year-old Simone Regina Penteado Sunday evening in the southeastern city of Araraquara and "threatened to kill her with a knife if she didn't stay still," police spokeswoman Natalia Rinaldi said by phone.

"The woman grabbed about 36 inches of Simone's dark brown hair and cut it off at the nape of her neck," Rinaldi said.

"It is obvious they will try to sell the hair to wig makers or to hair-transplant centers," she said. Rinaldi added that the thieves, who were still at large, could be charged with armed robbery which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years.

Rinaldi said she did not know if the robbery was related to a similar attack in Araraquara in February, when assailants cut some 12 inches of a 45-year-old woman's hair
