I had to giggle at this little tidbit (not the extortion thing, just one of the details):
A 36-year-old man has been arrested and charged with attempting to extort $1.5 million from TV titan Oprah Winfrey. A criminal complaint filed in Chicago, Illinois' District Court claims Atlanta, Georgia man Keifer Bonvillain, 36, targeted "a public figure and owner of a Chicago-based company". Local newspapers The Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times have named Winfrey as the victim in question. Bonvillain is accused of illegally recording conversations with a Winfrey employee he met at a party over two years ago.
Did you happen to catch the accused man's name? Keifer Bonvillain! Are you freakin' kidding me? He has the word "villain" in his name! His last name literally means "good villain." He was born to be Spiderman's arch nemesis.
Anyone who would trust a dude with the last name Bonvillain is asking for trouble, that's all I'm saying.
