Illinois town pays tribute to rare albino squirrels
Boston Globe | Submitted by: wingnut
"Olney's police officers celebrate the town's 200 white squirrels with big patches on their uniforms. Its city clerk has turned her home into a squirrel hospital. And a festival Saturday honored the fair furballs with a 5K 'scamper', the unveiling of a monument and a 'squirrel blessing' by a priest. Winky, a gray squirrel, came all the way from New Hampshire with his owner, Sheila Sullivan." Plenty of nuts in this town.

Followup: Lioness eats adopted baby
South African Broadcasting | Submitted by: heptapod
Apparently love only lasts as long as one lives: "When the fifth calf, "adopted" less than a week ago, died of hunger on Thursday, the lioness promptly ate it, said James Lesuyai, a guide for a park lodge. This is the first time that Kamuniak has eaten one of her charges."

Mini-Britney invented the world
CNN | Submitted by: osamaclone
"You know how everybody says thingy-mah-jig?" she asks. "I could swear I made that up. Everybody says it, from Kentwood to California to New York, and I'm telling you, I made it up. I said it one day, and the next day the whole school was saying it." Right, and the Russkies used to claim they invented light bulbs and the airplane. Will the megalomania of child stars never end? An indirect view of the horrors being suffered by Britney's little sister's personal assistant.

Mummified dinosaur discovered
National Geographic | Submitted by: Otisa
This article with photo gallery: "Paleontologists have discovered the most detatailed remains to date of a 77 million year old dinosaur in Montana. Leonardo, a mummified, 77 million year old duck-billed dinosaur was only about three or four years old when he died, but he's proving to be a bonanza for paleontologists today. His fossilized skeleton is covered in soft tissue—skin, scales, muscle, foot pads—and even his last meal is in his stomach."

Mr. God becomes Who I Am
BBC | Submitted by: WBH
"An American veteran of the Vietnam war who lost his legal bid to change his name to God has decided to call himself I Am Who I Am instead. The 55 year old said he hoped the name change would free him from feelings of anxiety and rage that have plagued him since he served in Vietnam."

Gun control gone global
Liberty For All | Submitted by: LFA Editor
"It was the British marching to Lexington and Concord to disarm unruly colonists that sparked the American Revolution. An English king branded American freedom-lovers as traitors and terrorists to justify the removal of their weapons of mass destruction. Thus, we have already witnessed the results of a tyrant's attempt at global gun control. It was not successful over two hundred years ago, and I hold no optimism that this modern-day attempt by Americans will be any more successful. As long as we have big guns the rest of the world is going to want big guns as well. It is only natural."

Fag-riddled high school hated by God
Oakland Argus | Submitted by: meatload
"Newark, Calif., High School students next month will perform The Laramie Project, a series of monologues based on interviews of Laramie, Wyo., residents after the murder of a gay college student. The Rev. Fred Phelps, a Baptist minister from Kansas whose character is depicted in the play, sent a fax to the high school saying the school was 'fag-riddled' and that 'God hates Newark High.'"

Just another day at the murder vault
Independent | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Solemn music was played during the killings. Several victims were forced to repeat scripted phrases on tape before they died. The tapes were later played over the telephone to relatives. A document found in Bunting's handwriting outlined the ritual: "The routine of confession had to be got through. The grovelling on the floor and the screaming for mercy, the crack of broken bones, the smashed teeth and bloody clots of hair."

Cannibal Class Reunion
CNN | Submitted by: The Kung Fu Magician
The rugby team who munched on their teammates reunited in Chile to play the game they were supposed to before their plane crashed. The players, now in their 50's, hugged each other on the field, each team scored once, and they got a "Cup of Friendship." No word on who catered.

Spanking the monkey
Launch | Submitted by: Col.Klink
"Micheal Jackson and his family practiced a bizarre ritual in which they sacrificed a live monkey. This is just one of the allegations made by sister LaToya Jackson's former husband, Jack Gordon. But the strange allegations don't stop there: Gordon claims that he frequently witnessed Michael physically abusing his pet chimpanzee, Bubbles. Michael used to say, 'He doesn't feel it. He's a chimpanzee."

Lurking with Gary Glitter
The People | Submitted by: Son of Benway

Fetal pigs for all no more
Buffalo News | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Many local school districts are finding middle ground by having science students dissect one type of animal rather than two or three, or by having three or four students, rather than two or three, work on a single animal. In other cases, just a single animal will be dissected in each class. 'Gone are the days when students got fetal pigs and did their dissections in pairs,' said Catherine Battaglia, principal of City Honors School."

Scots fed up with blood and guts
Daily Record | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"The villagers have been campaigning for five years to get the sludge removed from the fields. And they took their fight to the Scottish Parliament yesterday, helped by the SNP's George Reid... "The Minister should walk through frozen fields with a red goo lying on the top, gulls pecking at it. The minister should walk through silage with blood and guts smeared thick on it, foxes running through it and cats trailing it into the house."

Teens on express train to Hell
Cambridge News | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Instead of lighting candles in St Andrew's Church on August 12, the three boys, two aged 13 and one aged 14, set about causing almost UKP 1,000 of damage. They stole a crucifix from above the pulpit, smashed a wooden chest, and took a microphone, damaging the church's public address system in the process. All three denied smearing human excrement over clerical garments hanging in the vestry."
