Is the Journal Drunk? (I Certainly Am.)
Prom night, 1999: I was arrested by the Cape Girardeau police department at the Victorian Inn where a very boring party had been taking place. Down at the station, I got a "minor in possession of alcohol" charge and was photographed wearing pearls and a lovely corsage.

The race for New Mexico’s northern Third Congressional District seat, the position Tom Udall is vacating to run for Pete Domenici’s Senate spot, has not garnered many headlines or much television coverage in Albuquerque. Only a tip of that district touches the metropolitan area, and the hotter contests elsewhere have caused that particular campaign to fade from scrutiny.

Dateline: Japan—A 43-year-old woman in southern Miyazaki was arrested after killing her virtual husband in an interactive online videogame. The woman, who is jailed on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data, said she was so upset over an unexpected divorce from her online husband that she “killed” his digital persona. “I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning,” the unidentified woman told reporters. “That made me so angry.” The death occurred in the MMORPG MapleStory, in which players use digital “avatars” to interact with one another, engaging in relationships, social activities and combating monsters. The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old male office worker whose avatar was married to hers to kill off his character. The man complained to police when he discovered his beloved online avatar was dead. The woman was arrested last Wednesday and detained in Sapporo, where the man lives, on suspicion of hacking. She could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000. Police said they did not know if the woman was married in real life.
