its a good thing i'm not a huge basketball fan...

...which is somewhat of a sin, what with being from ky, and having lived in lexington and attended uk and everything. i do always want the home time to win, but since this year's season is looking so terribly bad, i don't have to apologize too much for not being a big fan.

a coworker forwarded this to me:

Lexington, KY (AP) - A seven-year-old Lexington, Kentucky boy was at the center of a Fayette County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Kentucky Wildcats, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
