How ironic, Carol Markin, who is suing Match.com for a bad date, has written several books on the same subject!

What a good way to get publicity. Find a sex offender, set up a date with them, claim you were sexually assaulted, the man goes to jail/prison, she gets free publicity and attention on all the media channels. She gets a heroes welcome, and eventually, more money in her pocket book! But I'm just speculating! I am not saying this did or didn't happen, just questioning her motives. I've read she also has a reality show coming out, wonder what it will be about? Bad dates? Here we have someone who has written two books on bad dates, and yet she did not head her own advice in her books, nor the rules by Match.com, nor common sense!, and now she wants to scream and blame Match.com?

Bad Dates: Celebrities (And Other Talented Types Reveal Their Worst Night Out) Markin is at the mercy of her contributors, so there is dross mixed in with the gold, but these 101 brief encounters could, collectively, persuade any rational person never to date again. Take, for example, actress Kimberly Russell's dinner with a man who admired the way she smelled (he claimed to have been a dog in a past life). Or lawyer Peter Nichols, who discovered at the end of an excruciating blind date that he spent the evening with the wrong woman altogether. Unfortunately, author James Ellroy did find the right blind date: she wore a giant crucifix and her first words were "I don't usually go out with un-saved guys, but my brother said you were tall!" And Alice Cooper relates his outing with Linda Blair to see The Exorcist: "It was sort of like 'The Addams Family' going to the movies." Occasionally a disastrous date ends happily--Anne Bernays marries Justin Kaplan despite her distaste for his choice of brains for lunch. Markin is an independent filmmaker, writer and artist.

THIS IS OF COURSE SATIRE!

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Cristy Sheldon was one a nice, innocent young kid who loved to get on the Internet, despite her parents wishes, and chat with people online.
She recently became a victim of sexual abuse by a man claiming to be another 14 year old child, fitness buff, who loves to work out.

The law will be named after her, to honor her name, and will be called "Cristy's Law."
The law will force all states to comply, or they will lose their federal grant money that has been set aside by the NotSmart office.
The law has already passed the House, and next goes to the Senate.

The FBI stated this was not done to punish offenders, but to protect society and the children from those who wish to do them harm. They are also considering putting other criminals on a similar online registry to further help protect society.
