    Anybody else watch Smallville when they were younger? Whatever its problems, I loved the show.

    Chloe (Alison Mack) was just arrested for sex trafficking. Apparently she was a top members of a cult/sex slave ring/ponzi scheme and has her initials branded on the slaves. Her nickname was 'Pimp Mack'.

    Lana (Kristen Kruek) was also involved with the group briefly 5 years ago, but she claims she had no idea about any of this.

    WTF?

    Grace Park was also in the group but left. Apparently both her and Kristen roles are alleged to be significant according to former members. What is wild about it is the group credits Kristen for recruiting Allison in the first place.

    I've read about this before. Did they just finally decide to convict her or what? Maybe it was a rumor before.

    I remember reading about allegations last year, looks like they finally put together enough to arrest.

    Reminds me of My Side of the Mountain, which the author wrote as a what if based on his family's tradition of 'running away' and then just coming back pretty quickly (he didn't make it past the bus stop iirc). One of my favorite childhood books.

    The man with the golden arm has given his last donation at 81.

    James Harrison has spent the last 6 decades donating blood once a week, 1,172 times. He happens to carry the antibody Rho(D) immune globulin that can be turned into a shot that saves unborn babies who have blood incompatible to their mothers.

    There are very very few people in the world with these antibodies. His plasma has gone into every shot of anti-D in Australia in the last 60 years. The man has saved over 2 million babies.

    Stone cold hero.

    Poor chap is living out what fantasy he can. Coffee is the only black thing he'll ever sell.
