We never get to "talk" any more

IN THE NEWS: According to the Associated Press, a license inspector for the state Department of Motor Vehicles has been charged with persuading a woman to strip off some of her clothing in exchange for passing her driver's test. Police said Kevin Chagnon was giving a road test to the woman Dec. 13. She had failed the driving test several times previously. Chagnon allegedly told the woman he would issue her a driver's license if she would take her clothes off.
Police said the woman reluctantly took off some of her clothing, but refused to take off all of it and Chagnon issued the woman a license.

(Uh, I couldn't make this up if I tried.)

You didn't have me on your list of torture friends. I'm heartbroken, but I will post my answers on my blog.
