Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

07/15/2005: Questions I NEVER thought to ASK....

And I've never said Dennis Hastert Corner wasn’t a riotously FUN place to live:

”…A Kane County judge Thursday sentenced Noel Huecias, 37, of 6N693 Tuscola Ave., to 60 days in jail and 12 months of probation for two incidents June 9 when he had sexual contact with a dog in a yard near where he was working.
Huecias pleaded guilty to misdemeanor attempted sexual contact with an animal in exchange for the sentence.
Huecias smiled and seemed relaxed throughout the hearing while his family and friends waited in the audience.

According to police, Huecias pressed himself up against a chain link fence in the 1400 block of South Seventh Street at 9:15 a.m. June 9 and made sexual contact with an Akita.

He was observed coming back to the same house at 12:30 p.m. and jumping the fence. Police officers found him in the yard on his knees with his pants undone trying to get the dog to approach, prosecutors said.

The judge ordered Huecias to get a psychological evaluation and stay away from all animals, including owning household pets. It was Huecias’ first criminal offense.

However, it isn’t the county’s first brush with sexual crimes against animals. An Elburn man was charged with sexually abusing a pit bull owned by a Geneva man last year. He was convicted of damage to property, because a judge ruled that sexual gratification couldn’t be proven.

A St. Charles veterinarian who testified at the trial said that sexual abuse of animals in the area isn’t uncommon.”

Sheesh – “sexual abuse of animals in the area isn’t uncommon” – I Guess I should have asked that question along with “how are the schools rated” before we moved out here. :-(
