* Men behaving very badly in June (I guess this may not surprise women)   *

Leanoard Ruckman was arrested in Stotts City, MO, last June and charged 
with assault outside a bar following a dispute over car keys.  In a fit of 
pique, Ruckman allegedly slashed open a female acquaintance's breast and 
removed her implant.

Franklin James was charged with aggravated assault in Newport, TN, last 
June after putting Super Glue on his wife's genitals as punishment for an 
alleged affair.  His wife obtained a judicial protection order, but 
according to an August news report, the couple was living "happily" 
together again and was planning a move to the Carolinas.

The New York Times reported on the secret life of a 25-year-old British-
born daughter of Pakistani immigrants who has changed residences 19 times
in the last five years to avoid death threats from her own father and 
brother, who are angry that she, at age 16, refused to accept a family
arranged marriage.  The woman said that in her last conversation with her
brother, he had promised to track her down and kill her "slowly."

This project is so important, we can't let things that are more important
interfere with it.

Doing it right is no excuse for not meeting the schedule.

No one will believe you solved this problem in one day!  We've been
working on it for months.  Now, go act busy for a few weeks and I'll let
you know when it's time to tell them.
