I can see some speciesism being an issue with the statue and underlying story, but I’m also intrigued by the claim in the article that the mermaid was designed by the sculptor and “modelled on his wife, Eline.”

Great story, and great comments underneath. But following links, as you do, I was surprised to discover that Mia Khalifa had been a porn star for only three months!

Fox News is a good source indeed-. They also have great stuff in the politics section on their website!

Circumstantial evidence. It would never hold in a court of law.

I once did a TV interview alongside a gentleman who ran a swingers' club. (I was there to talk about getting the UK's first online divorce. Sadly.) His name was Dirty Dick, I recall. I have his business card somewhere.
