Star Wars Kid update.

Well. Now the parents are trying to sue for $160K. (Quote links to Wired story) Y'know. He really shoulda called it quits when the people chipped in and bought him the iPod and gift certificate stuff. Someone even chipped in $500. And rightfully-so pulled back their donation when they heard about this lawsuit crap.

He "will be under psychiatric care for an indefinite amount of time." The suit suggests that the ordeal may cause Ghyslain to be labeled as "mentally ill," and the stigma could make it difficult for him to enroll in school or get a job, and may force him to change his name.

I'd like to suggest he change his name to Jek Porkins.
