Giancarlo Granda said he had sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell Jr, head of Liberty University, looked on.

Six additional women have contacted the Los Angeles Times since Ron Jeremy's arrest, describing interactions with him from unwanted touching to violent rape.

Angus JohnstonAnd if you want to compare the two versions of the speech—or just read it as originally written—I've got a few options for you. First, here's a site that has the two versions side-by-side, so you can read either alone, or go back and forth between the two

Connie Curry became Atlanta human services director after years in civil rights. Curry, 86, an activist, historian and author and editor of five books died June 20 of complications from sepsis.
Angus JohnstonI've just learned of the passing of Connie Curry, one of the leaders in the National Student Association's civil rights work in the 1950s and 1960s, and one of the original board members of SNCC. A hell of a woman.
