The self-proclaimed "Nazi dad" of New Jersey is officially a "Nazi Führer." Heath Campbell reportedly applied to change his last name to Hitler and a Hunterdon County judge approved it on Friday.

"I'm named after a hero," he told MyCentralJersey.com. "The judge approved it. My name is Hitler now."

The fake Führer found notoriety in 2008 after a grocery store refused to write "Happy birthday, Adolf Hitler," on a cake for his son, who was named for the loathed Third Reich dictator. read more

An attack occurred outside the British Parliament in London Wednesday in which a police officer was stabbed and several people struck by a car on Westminster Bridge. "We were in the cafe when it happened," said witness Michelle Langham. "We saw a policeman down on the floor. We saw a lot of commotion. Everyone who was out on the street was told to get into the cafe. There were lots of people screaming." Daily Mail journalist Quentin Letts said, "This man had something in his hand, it looked like a stick of some sort and he was challenged by a couple of policemen in yellow jackets and one of the yellow jacketed policemen fell down."


Kudos to Sears Holdings Corp. (SHLD) for finally admitting what everyone already knew: it's almost dead.

As TheStreet broke the news on Twitter Tuesday evening, Sears indicated in its newly filed annual report that "substantial doubt exists related to the company's ability to continue as a going concern." For those clickbait-loving headline writers out there with no financial services training: what Sears essentially said is that yes, it's unsure if it could stay in business. Well, duh.

Sears' cash position has melted from a high point of $1.7 billion for the 2009 calendar year to a mere $286 million to close out 2016. Revenue hasn't grown since the credit boom lifted all ships in retail in 2006. The company hasn't generated cash flow from its operations since 2006.

A 27-year-old anatomy teacher in Texas was arrested Monday, accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old student.

But that's only one reason Sarah Madden Fowlkes is making national headlines.

The other is her smiling mugshot.

Wearing an ear-to-ear smile, Fowlkes looks like she's posing for a new Facebook profile photo instead of a jailhouse mug.

"She grinned and bared it," crowed the New York Post.

"Sarah Fowlkes seemed to find her arrest a joyous occasion," snarked British tabloid The Sun.

Fowlkes turned herself in to police in Lockhart, Texas, about 35 miles from Austin, where authorities charged her with having an improper relationship with a student at Lockhart High, a second-degree felony.
