In the midst of all the Cheney shooting news, the press has pretty much overlooked the most interesting story of the week.
This tale of a woman smuggling a male human head into Florida is interesting to me on many levels, not the least of which is that it involves voodoo. Second, it took place in south Florida, which is one of the weirdest places ever -- and is also where I grew up.
The charges filed against the woman are pretty amusing -- including failing to declare the head on a customs declaration form and transporting hazardous material.
The best part of the story: The woman's name is Myrlene Severe.
