Should Nick Hogan have been moved to a new jail cell?

Nick Bollea HoganThe Hulkster's son, in jail for a driving accident that put his friend in a coma, just got moved last Friday into a new jail cell. He was serving his eight-month prison sentence in solitary confinement after pleading no contest to the three charges: reckless driving, drunk driving, and having tinted windows on his Supra.

In a conversation with his mother, Linda Hogan, Nick (real last name Bollea) described the jail cell as half the size of his bathroom with no windows. According to Nancy Grace, the cell measures 12 X 16. Nick's new digs include a cable television, unlimited phone use, a snack bar, and three other juvenille inmates. According to the Sherrif's office, he was being held in solitary confinement becuase he is seventeen and therefore too young to be with the rest of the criminal population. His lawyers apparently filed a lawsuit against the sheriff's office saying that the decision to keep their client in solitary confinement is a violation of his privacy.

What do you think? Should Nick have stayed in solitary confinement until July 27th, his eighteenth birthday?

My Name is Earl: Didn't Pay Taxes

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Mar 3rd 2006 9:15AM

After what seemed like an interminable Winter Olympics break, My Name is Earl finally comes back to Thursday night. Life is indeed good again.

This week, we come to find that Earl neglected to pay his taxes after working in an asbestos-filled room with his brother Randy a while back. He did pay his share of fines to the municipality over the years, but Earl feels he owes it to the government and adds this task to his list.

Earl is doing his level best to repay the government in a number of innovative ways, including filling in a pothole on the main highway. Of course, things go awry when a police officer accuses him of burying a baby in the hole at gunpoint, and Earl eventually "undigs" the pothole. He then gets the idea to join a prison road gang, where he meets up with an old friend who is doing time. All of the cons are dressed in jeans and white t-shirts, and as the day goes on and the heat beats down on the gang, Earl takes off his shirt and is in his jeans and white t-shirt. When the guard begins to gather everyone back on the bus, Earl is mistaken for a prisoner, and despite his protestations, is driven to prison.

Earl's pleas that he is not a prisoner are ignored, and he ends up in solitary confinement to the strains of Humble Pie's "30 Days in the Hole." (A BRILLIANT song choice!) Finally, after a few meals, Earl is released. One would think that he would put this part of his list aside, but Earl is determined to make amends, even though he has become frustrated with the government and how they don't seem to care.

Meet the cast of Survivor: Panama

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 10th 2006 10:32AM
CBS has assembled quite the rag-tag group of reality television junkies to participate in the twelfth installation of Survivor. This time around, it's in Panama. Last fall's competition was so darn boring that the producers really spiced things up this time around. First of all, the cast of characters is pretty interesting. Castaways include a former astronaut, a karate expert, a female lumberjack, an attorney who calls himself "a modern day caveman", and a woman who wants people to think of her as the "hot nurse". The producers are mixing up the rules, too. Instead of two tribes, there will be four, and they'll be divided by age and gender. Think: old men vs. old women vs. young men vs. young women. That gives them old fogies a fightin' chance! Plus, a lot more castaways will be sent to solitary confinement on their very own island. Survivor: Panama--Exile Island premieres on February 2.
