A teenage girl in New Jersey may have inadvertently broken the law. She posted a bunch of nude pictures of herself on MySpace for her boyfriend and ran into child pornography laws. The girl could face 17 years in jail and may have to register as a sex offender. [Source]

Bezos is not doing any interviews or press about this while in Kentucky, so this doesn’t look like a publicity stunt. [Source]
