New York Post | Submitted by: Mr. Ramon
"A crazed Queens man bit and tore at his girlfriend's face in a bloody attack straight out of a horror movie, cops said yesterday... After crashing through the bedroom door, they were shocked by the sickening sight that greeted them.

Man steals $21K of ponytails
Associated Press | Submitted by: Rio
An Illinois man has been charged with impersonating a charity in order to steal 93 ponytails, valued at $21,300. Melvin G.

Cisco and Yahoo complicit in Chinese censorship
Daily Standard | Submitted by: Soylent
Red China has architected the largest censorship apparatus the world has ever seen, made possible by the American corporations Cisco and Yahoo. Most egregiously, many thousands of routers sold for tens of thousands of dollars apiece that were designed by Cisco specifically for the Chinese market, with Internet censorship in mind, great for the bottom line but not so for the people of China. Said one Cisco official: "We don't care about the [Chinese government's] rules. It's none of Cisco's business."

McKosher
Jerusalem Post | Submitted by: McWhat?
The Israeli franchise owner of McDonald's rejected the rabbinate's suggestion to call some branches "McKosher," and came up with three alternatives of his own. The franchise owners suggested calling the kosher branches "McExpress" or "The Kosher McDonald's," or changing the color of the Mc-logo in the kosher branches from red to blue. But you still can't get a cheeseburger at any of them...regardless of what they are called.
