Sado-masochistic best-seller "50 Shades of Grey" is popular reading among high-value detainees at Guantanamo, officials told a visiting congressional delegation. "Rather than the Koran, the book that is requested most by the (Camp Seven detainees) is 'Fifty Shades of Grey,'" House Democrat Jim Moran said in comments first published by the Huffington Post and confirmed July 31, 2013 by his spokeswoman. "They've read the entire series in English," said Moran, who advocates for closure of the US detention facility in southeastern Cuba. "I guess there's not much going on. These guys are going nowhere, so what the hell." The unexpected "Fifty Shades" revelation reportedly came during a tour that delegation members took with the base commander, the chief medical officer, and the officer in charge of once-secret Camp Seven, the most secure part of the Guantanamo facility. British author EL James has sold more than 70 million copies of her erotic romance trilogy of novels, which depict the use of handcuffs and blindfolds during sex.

  • Deputies rescue bloodhound trapped under car on California highway

    A Placer County Sheriff’s deputy and another California Highway Patrol officer rescued a dog trapped under a vehicle after being hit on Highway 80 east of Penryn, California on January 18. The Placer County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy was driving along the eastbound lanes of traffic when the deputy saw a bloodhound running frantically across the highway. Other motorists tried to avoid hitting the scared dog, and the deputy tried to slow traffic and save the animal from the busy roadway. The dog then ran the opposite direction, where he was hit by a passing car, becoming pinned underneath with its paw under the rear tire. Using a floor jack, the two officers were able to lift the car and save the dog.
