Worst Father In The World Nominee

And now, our nominee for Worst Father In The World.

A California father told his crying 7-year-old son he needed to toughen up and then threw him off a tour boat into a busy harbor as shocked passengers looked on, police say. Former Marine sergeant Sloane Briles, 35, was arrested for child endangerment and resisting arrest, AP reports. "The father hit him several times and then threatened to throw him overboard if he didn't stop crying," a police spokesman says. "The crowd on the boat became very angry at the father for hitting the kid and extremely angry when he threw him overboard."

John Ball Zoo, Doin What It Otter

Watch Lady Gaga Take a Spill

Did you watch any of the award show on t.v. last night? Just isn't my thing, even though I'd like to have seen Lady Gaga take a spill.

If you listen to the Andy and Chuck Morning Show on WTRV FM, you know I am not a big fan of award shows -- award shows of any kind, movies or music. ( I am a fan of any poll that puts me on top, but other than that, award shows are for the birds. ) Having said that, my wife and kids were glued to last night's MTV Video Music Awards. Me? I was in the bedroom watching a 9/11 special on NatGeo that featured an hour long interview with President Bush.
