A small village in Florida was created in the 1960s in the middle of sugar cane fields to house the people who worked there.

On Thursday morning, the Houston Press web site, which is owned by the Village Voice Media company, published a list of the “10 hottest female sex offenders.” I am purposefully not linking to the post so as not to give them traffic.
