- Boy, never saw this one coming:
- I suppose this could be called the lamest excuse ever:
A South Carolina state representative's lawyer said a rock in his shoe explains why Rep. Ted Vick was walking funny, catching the attention of an officer who eventually arrested him for DUI, his second such charge in less than a year. [...]
A Bureau of Protective Services officer saw Vick stumbling as he walked into a parking garage on the State House grounds in Columbia. Vick got into his car and hit a cone before the officer could catch up and ask him to stop.
Vick smelled like alcohol and refused field sobriety tests, according to an incident report. The officer called for backup, and Vick was eventually placed into handcuffs and taken to the Richland County jail, authorities said.
But Vick's lawyer, fellow Rep. Todd Rutherford, said Vick was not impaired. Vick was walking funny because he had a rock in his shoe, said Rutherford, D-Columbia.
- Just admit it: You've always wanted to do this:
A frustrated New York theater critic smashed up a woman's cellphone because she kept surfing the web during a musical.
- Water, water, everywhere:
Scientists have discovered water that has been trapped in rock for more than a billion years. The water might contain microbes that evolved independently from the surface world, and it's a finding that gives new hope to the search for life on other planets.
The water samples came from holes drilled by gold miners near the small town of Timmins, Ontario, about 350 miles north of Toronto. Deep in the Canadian bedrock, miners drill holes and collect samples. Sometimes they hit pay dirt; sometimes they hit water, which seeps out from tiny crevices in the rock. [...]
As Holland announced this week in the journal Nature, this is the oldest cache of water ever found.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin on the dying embers of the "scandal" fires.
