Battle of the Bugs
ABC TV affiliates | Submitted by: La Rue
Massive roach infestation! "The city of Philadelphia has declared war on an army of roaches in Fishtown." With video, including the woman who lives amid this creepy bug bomb, which is what makes this story worthy of posting. "A friend helped the woman who lives in the home wheel away a few belongings in a shopping cart. She blames her neighbors, claiming the roaches flocked to her house whenever they sprayed their own homes... after the house was sprayed the dead roaches were 8" deep in the bathtub."

The perils of naughty mail order
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"My wife and daughter were in the bath. I opened the door to let them know I was home and what I saw nearly made my eyes pop out of my head. My daughter was playing with the thing I'd been using to pleasure myself with the previous night. And her bath toy dolphin was deeply imbedded in the same orifice where I had been. My wife picked it up and asked me if it was a new type of sponge. She told me it felt really good on her skin as she started to use it to scrub her back. I walked out without saying anything."

New Orleans Times-Picayune | Submitted by: dogawful
In an ironic juxtaposition to the recent "sniper attacks" in Maryland a New Orleans man was shot 25 times by a single assailant, and survived. "The attacker walked up to him and began firing a handgun. Once that weapon emptied, he produced a second weapon and continued to fire... when the second weapon emptied, he produced yet a third and continued to fire."

New Orleans Times-Picayune | Submitted by: dogawful
Not only did they get him to steal for them, but then they ditched on him too: "A New Orleans couple were jailed in St. Bernard Parish after they allegedly had their 8-year-old son try to steal $66 worth of groceries and beer from an Arabi supermarket, then denied knowing him and abandoned him when he was stopped while leaving the store."

Mental teen starves, then becomes child
AZ Central | Submitted by: BTuna
Followup, mainly because we now have a picture: "Chester Lee Miller was sick and starving, and barely able to stand when he knocked on a stranger's door in Milton, Fla., last month to ask for a place to sleep. Janice Goodman let him in, fixed him a sandwich and called her mother for help. When she arrived, Chester's childlike greeting stunned them both: "Are you my new mommy?"

Pravda: Cities found on the Moon
Pravda | Submitted by: anonymous
""Reasonable activity of an alien civilization showed up unexpectedly close to us. However, we were not psychologically ready for it. We still come across publications trying to find an answer to the following question: Are we alone in the universe? At the same time, the presence of reasoning beings has been detected close to our home, on the Moon. However, this discovery was immediately classified as secret, as it is so incredible that it even might shake the already existing social principles, reports Russia's newspaper Vecherny Volgograd." It seems that these days Pravda will report anything, including alien civilizations on the moon. The second link shows frame AS10-32-4822, the photo they suggest was ruins of an alien city. Clearly it is not.

Teenage wasteland in Honduras
BBC | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Cynthia Carolina. She tells me she is 17. But she cannot remember when she was born. To me she looks 14, at a push 15. She has a two year old baby. I watch as she blows warm, moist breath into a plastic bag filled with glue. Her breath blends with the fumes of the solvent and then she inhales deeply, sucking it all back into her chest. A dreamy expression slips across the eyes of Cynthia Carolina. Then she lifts her jumper and rubs her stomach and tells us that she is pregnant again."

National Geographic | Submitted by: Son of Benway

NYPD: Feel secure, Feel very secure.
New York Post | Submitted by: wingnut
"The Police Department is conducting its own secret intelligence gathering operations about an out of state mosque, without informing the FBI or its own detectives assigned to the Joint FBI-NYPD Terrorist Task Force, The Post has learned... Since Raymond Kelly returned as police commissioner in January in the wake of the World Trade Center attacks, he has expanded the Intelligence Division, placing former CIA operations chief David Cohen at its helm. The NYPD expansion has caused friction with the FBI and the joint task force as police brass at One Police Plaza signal a "go-it-alone" attitude while preaching cooperation."

The Few, The Proud, The Totally Gay
News and Observer | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Police said the six Marines, identified only by their initials in court papers, traveled to a Raleigh home last month hoping to make some extra money doing yard work. Instead they ended up having sex with their 39 year old would-be employer, who surreptitiously recorded video and audio tapes of the sex acts, which occurred separately, police said. He then threatened to turn the tapes over to the Marines' families and military superiors if they refused to have sex with him again, police said."

The weirdest white supremacist ever
Independent | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"The white supremacist hid his racism from his Chinese wife, Oi Yee Yip, whom he met while working at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford in 1989. The couple ran a Chinese takeaway in Birmingham until they sold it in the early Nineties. They have lived apart since 1995... In interviews with police, Tovey cited his wife's ethnicity, his love of music by Hendrix and the soul singer Sade, and the presence of two black lead actors in his favourite television programme, Red Dwarf, as evidence that he was not a racist."
