Geek News:Trinity Southern University, an online school based in Texas, has been sued by the state of Pennsylvania for allegedly using state and private Internet addresses to hawk fake graduate degrees and prescription drugs. The "university" sent out more than 180,000 spam e-mails in 2004, of which some 300 were sent from e-mail servers belonging to companies and schools in Pennsylvania.
