Marriott Drops "It's Your Fault" Claim In Rape Case

After it broke last week that Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa was claiming it was the fault of the victim and her two toddlers that she was raped in their parking garage, the hotel has decided to withdraw the claim.

Breasts make men crazy. The hypnotic jiggling of rose-tipped orbs have been enough to make men do all sorts of insane things: bungee jump, wear leather pants, claim to have coined the phrase “Pardon my French.”

Tipster Don’ts: We Don’t Care For Rape Analogies

Yesterday, Ben and I received an email from Bruce C. asking us how to send in a complaint. We’ve been getting a lot of these sorts of emails from people since we went on ‘Nightline': guys, seriously, just write it up and email us. I never bother responding to these people, but Ben took pity and emailed Bruce C. back, asking him to send in his story.
