Boner Candidate #1: I’M 71 AND I CAN SMACK ANYONE I WANT TO

A 71-year-old Billings woman was charged Thursday with a felony for allegedly slapping an unruly 4-year-old child in a restaurant parking lot. Beverly Ann Hardy was charged in Yellowstone County Justice Court with felony assault on a minor for a June 9 incident outside the Perkins restaurant on North 27th Street. According to court records, Darla Edwards called police shortly before 11 a.m. to report that an elderly woman she did not know approached her 4-year-old foster son, slapped him across the face and then yelled at him that he would be going to jail. The woman then yelled at Edwards to “get control of the child” and continued to yell at her as she got into her car. Edwards said her foster son was acting “like a 4-year-old boy” and was jumping and running around in the parking lot.

Boner Candidate #2: NOW, WHICH RELIGION IS THE VIOLENT ONE?

Leaders of the Masjid al-Sahaabah mosque in Watauga, Tex., have grown accustomed to receiving several threatening voice mails on their answering machine each week. Normally, the messages are deleted and quickly forgotten at the mosque near Fort Worth. But a message that arrived one recent afternoon was different. The caller identified himself as a local Army veteran and a Christian who was “armed to the teeth.” Referring to Islam as a “violent religion,” he accused Muslims of trying to import sharia law to the United States and called for “another Christian crusade.” “We will cut all of your heads off,” the caller said. “Do you understand me? All of you.” [The surprising thing that happened when this Islamophobe protested at a mosque] The message wasn’t discovered until a week after it was left, Simon Vincent, the head of mosque security, told The Washington Post.

Boner Candidate #3: TRY IT THE RIGHT WAY FIRST

Four women are challenging a New Jersey law that they say unfairly targets same-sex couples hoping to conceive a child through fertility treatments. Erin and Marianne Krupa of Montclair, Sol Mejias of North Bergen, and Sarah Mills of Union City, filed suit on August 1 against Richard J. Badolato, the commissioner of the state Department of Banking and Insurance. According to the suit, the women were denied insurance coverage for their fertility treatments because of the wording of an N.J. law that requires women to prove their infertility not only through medical diagnosis, but through unprotected heterosexual sex. The law, the four women argue in the suit, discriminates against infertile gay couples trying to conceive. According to the civil suit, the Krupas have been trying to conceive a child since 2013.
