Two hundred dollars a month in dog support? That’s what a Canadian judge ordered Ken Duncan to pay his ex, in addition to spousal support, while she cares for his St. Bernard. The decision, a first in Alberta, says the cost of feeding and looking after the big dog justifies the payments, but Duncan says “there’s no way that dog is eating $200 a month” … Your money or your privacy: You decide.

McGreevey denounced the decision as “bureaucratic nonsense,” and the state Assembly on Thursday voted 78-0 to approve a bill legalizing the practice. Now, ladies, on to the Senate. –Lydia Markoff
