only one bullet today (so i'm not even using a bullet):
this story, about a 37-year-old NYC teacher who was fired for having sex with a student. granted, he wasn't her student, just a student, but what confuses me isn't the mary kay letourneau-ness of it all. it's how she:
not only did they have sex, but they live together in queens and have a kid together. i know, wtf, right? the daily news recounts their entire beautiful story (the best parts in bold):
Walter, now 19, met Salamino in 2002, when he was 12. He saw her again, records show, at an August 2006 party. That flirty encounter led to dates at the movies, hundreds of phone calls, nights at her Howard Beach apartment and sex.
Schools investigators began looking into the affair in November 2006, records show, after receiving a tip that Salamino had been seen kissing and hugging a much younger male.
More calls followed, including one from an unidentified person who confronted Walter in disgust over the affair, says a school investigator's report obtained under the state's Freedom of Information Law.
"'I'm tapping that a-- and there's nothing you can do about it,'" the teen responded, says the report from Special Commissioner of Investigation Richard Condon.
as you may have guessed, the readers of nydailynews.com didn't let us down in the comments area. there were haters:

She looks like his hefty grandmother, not even his mother or older sister. What kind of cuchie voodoo was she conjuring up on this clueless kid. Not surprised he has a mommy complex--look at his own mother's response to the situation. She was probably inappropriately getting some action in herself.
