According to SFGate News Director Vlae Kershner, the stories below were the most popular ones we had on our web site this week.
As we're all painfully aware, the ways of the internet can be mysterious, and while the popularity of some articles seems obvious, others seem like UFOs.
Here's the list, with some conjecture on why these pieces might have engaged readers more than any others. What do you think?
This one topped the charts for three whole days, helped along by a lively readers' discussion over whether the judge, a conservative with libertarian leanings, had done anything wrong. Maybe I'm just being cynical but mix the federal bench and bestiality - bingo! - people are just going to want to take a squint. But this isn't the only story on our list today where I'm not sure exactly what's going on. There's just more here than we can know and it probably falls under the category: humans are complex.
In addition to the serious topics this raises about the web, privacy and conflicts of interest at trial, other questions linger:
a. Why have real farm animals in a sex video, then have a woman painted to look like a cow? Can't make up your mind? Clearly someone was in an indecisive moo.
b. The site included "family photos." Was that a human family? Horses? Or are we talking more inclusive here?
