Odds & Ends

Dateline: Poland—According to England’s The Sun newspaper, a Polish woman has filed a lawsuit against an Egyptian hotel claiming that her teenage daughter got mysteriously pregnant after using the facility’s swimming pool. Magdalena Kwiatkowska claims her 13-year-old daughter became inseminated thanks to a stray sperm swimming around the hotel’s mixed-sex pool. The teen allegedly returned from a vacation in Egypt pregnant, and Kwiatkowska says her daughter certainly did not meet or fraternize with any boys while in Egypt.

Letters

One of your managing editors, Laura Marich [sic], in referring to Michael Jackson’s death [Music to Your Ears, “The Man in the Mirror,” July 2-8], has the unbelievable balls to write that “I was relieved to hear he’s died ..." [sic]? Are there any other early deaths that might make your daily trials easier, Laura? Insensitive, rude, uncouth, the list goes on. I may not always like the Alibi’s editorial stance and writing, but would I be glad if any of you died? God, no! Live long and prosper, and keep writing rude, shitty, disrespectful pieces! Get a grip. A famous person died an early death, don’t go on record saying that you are “relieved ... ” So bogus. So rude. So shallow. So embarrassing.
