Rocky Lang: Sleazy Legal
Huffington Post - almost 4 years

Agreeing that it made no sense to pay expensive attorneys, we settled our own affairs and decided to take the cheap way out: a paralegal service that would file the divorce papers for a fee and we would be finished. Slam dunk baby! My marriage wasn't going into overtime -- I was ending the game. Swish! Being the smart sophisticated writer that I am, I spied a paralegal service on the boulevard as I listened to an oldies station on the radio. It was going to be easy, fast and cheap.

Fashion News: Miley Cyrus partly dressed at 2012 Billboard Awards
LATimes - almost 5 years
— Miley Cyrus wore part of a tuxedo to the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. She got plenty of attention, but why not with legs like that? Alicia Keys wore a simple, curve-hugging black Azzedine Alaia Couture gown; Swizz Beatz was in a crisp white suit, and Usher and Jordin Sparks both wore blue — the Huffington Post calls the latter two the evening's "style sensations."
