No 'Joy of Gay Sex' at This Idaho Town Library

There would be no joy in sex for homosexuals in one Idaho town if one public library user had his way.

Randy Jackson, of Nampa, Idaho, checked “The Joy of Gay Sex” out of the library and says he has no intentions of returning it. But Jackson isn’t looking to learn any new moves.

He checked the book out as a form of protest against the library, which he says shouldn’t carry books with graphic content when teens and children frequent the library, KTVB.com reported.

The library recently decided it would continue to carry “The Joy of Gay Sex” and similar titles as part of its collection, but the controversial books would be housed on higher shelves.

“I believe that the library board did not have the best interests of the community in mind when they made their decision today,” Jackson said.

Young Workers Really Know How to Stick It to the Man

Officer workers between the ages of 18 and 24 are more than twice as likely than older colleagues to swipe office supplies without a second thought, a recent survey says.

Reuters reported that one in five workers did not feel it was wrong to steal from the office, and some even considered that nice pen or a shiny red stapler as “fringe benefits” to their job. Spherion Workplace Snapshot conducted the survey.

Cops Bust Grimy Grill Ring

PALM SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — Call it the bling sting.

Detectives had been watching the Blue Diamond Jewelry shop for a month after getting reports that its workers were fitting customers with gold teeth caps using filthy equipment.

Some clients had no problems with their shiny new "grills." Others were not so fortunate and suffered severe infections.

The amateur, unlicensed dentists cast the grills using filthy tools stored in a cluttered back room amid trash and debris, authorities said.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office detectives put an end to the dentistry Wednesday and shut down the business Wednesday in an undercover sting.

With Ears That Big, You'd Think They'd Catch Him

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — Bank robbers apparently don't have an advocacy group protesting such insulting law enforcement monikers as the "Overweight Bandit," "Big Nose Bandit" and "Oldtimer Bandit."

The latest is the "Enormous Ears Bandit," who is targeting banks as far away as San Diego and has apparently struck the Central Coast area for a third time.

The bandit got away with about $3,000 from a Bank of America branch in Montecito on Wednesday. After looking at surveillance video, investigators said it was the work of the crook the FBI dubbed "The Enormous Ears Bandit." He's wanted in six other robberies.

The robber on Wednesday handed a demand note to a teller and ordered the cash to be in $50s and $100s, police said. No weapon was seen.

Call It What You Want, But They're Still Cleaning Toilets

SINGAPORE (AP) — Singapore, famous for its spotless streets, is stepping up its campaign against filth in the restroom with a training program to boost the status and skills of the city-state's toilet cleaners, a newspaper reported Thursday.

More than 50 toilet cleaners will be promoted to "restroom specialist" upon completing the three-day pilot course taught by Japanese experts in the latest toilet technology, The Straits Times reported.

The program aims to boost the image and wages of professional toilet cleaners by training them to do more on the job, The Straits Times reported.

The college has flown in three top Japanese trainers to conduct the course on improving cleaning techniques and technical expertise to the initial group of 51 cleaners.
