Man arrested for giving girl a tongue-lashing.

A 12-year-old girl and her friends were playing with a ball near a man's yard in Naugatuck, Conn. when she hit him with the ball.  He chased her down and gave her a licking...  With his tongue.

The 49-year-old man said he has back problems, and was upset, so he grabbed her and licked her face.  I guess *now* he's tried everything for it.

For using bad taste, he is now being charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and breach of peace.

Did AIG use bailout money to smear former CEO?

AIG is being investigated by the House Oversight and Government Reform committee on allegations that the company used bailout money to discredit former AIG chairman and CEO Maurice Greenberg before his testimony about the company's actions.  Greenberg says that the company's executives took it down the wrong path after he resigned in 2005.  Reporters have told the committee that AIG contacted them to smear Greenberg, and the committee wants to know if bailout money was used to finance the campaign.
