For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

Eva Longoria does eat
By Times Wires
Published March 8, 2008
Eva Longoria Parker and chef Todd English have entered the Hollywood market with their new eatery, Beso. How can someone so thin possibly be involved in the food industry? Because Longoria Parker likes to eat. "I'll go to a restaurant, and if I have an amazing dish, I'll go to the kitchen and ask the chef how he made it. And then I'll make him teach me," she tells People. "You can ask (husband) Tony (Parker), I do it all the time. I'll leave him at the table for like 30 minutes." Eva's contribution to the Beso menu? "I make the best guacamole in the world," she says. "And my tortilla soup, for which I am renowned for." We thought that playing a mean woman who sleeps with underage gardeners is what she's renowned for, but we'll take guac and soup.
Britney fights fat fees
Celeb news Web site TMZ.com tells us that Britney Spears' legal fees in her custody suit over her two kids are mounting to the tune of $1.1-million. Her conservators are so ticked off about the amount that they've filed documents challenging some $500,000 demanded by ex Kevin Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, for work performed from October 2007 to February 2008 (the court has ruled Brit must pay K-Fed's "reasonable" attorney fees, but that doesn't sound reasonable to us). Also, Brit's lawyers, Trope and Trope, are asking for $600,000, which may or may not be defensible seeing as how she couldn't be bothered to go to her hearings the past few months.
Ashlee worth $2 a minute
Ashlee Simpson performed at a packed Honey Pot in Ybor City early Friday - for about 10 minutes. Hardly seems worth all the waiting, not to mention the $20 tickets. No wonder the crowd at the burlesque club was pretty ticked off when she left the stage shortly after 1 a.m. Simpson was trying out songs from her upcoming album, Bittersweet World, which drops April 15. At least she did sing instead of lip-synch and take a second to get a photo with the Honey Pot's owners and some dancers. Meanwhile, while she was en route to Tampa, Ashlee took time to blog on MySpace about rumors she was drunk during an interview at a D.C. radio station last week. She said that the DJ was rude and immediately assumed that because she had gotten a tattoo the night before, she must have been drinking. "I was asked mostly personal questions, which are never fun to be asked, and therefore I giggled my way through it," she writes. "If you listen to other interviews I've done, you'd know I giggle a lot. ... I giggle when people ask me uncomfortable questions, not knowing what to say or what else to do." And here we thought the giggling was from not understanding the questions in the first place.
Madge won't sing for fame
Expecting to see Madonna perform at her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday? Too bad. Fox News reports that the Material Mogul is only going to attend the ceremony, not strut her stuff. Justin Timberlake will induct her, and a medley of her songs will be played by (are you ready for this?) Iggy Pop. Yes, the same gaunt punker who has not been allowed into the hall himself.
