Last year a man from England named Bart Simpson was arrested for having a firearm in an airport. Simpson is 56, so you can't blame his parents for giving him the kind of name that would result in ridicule and, eventually, a life of crime. ('The Simpsons' has been on for that long. It only seems like it.)
It was just fate that he ended up with the same name as a cartoon troublemaker. And when his trial began earlier this month fate struck again. Bart Simpson would be facing a judge named Mr. Burns.
As we advance deeper into the 21st century, a Senator's press secretary is at least as likely to be getting the word out on Twitter than communicating with the press in more traditional ways.

If there is one thing the internet has taught us it's that people really love bacon. A coffee house in Cheltenham, England is betting that there are folks out there who love the cured meat so much that they would be willing to shell out 150 pounds ($237) for what they are calling the Bacon Bling sandwich.
