Globe and Mail | Submitted by: spivaks@hotmail.com
"Eleven microbiologists are mysteriously dead over the span of just five months. Some of them world leaders in developing weapons-grade biological plagues.

San Francisco Chronicle | Submitted by: anonymous
"A Nigerian airliner taking off with 76 people aboard tore a three-block swath through mosques and homes in the northern city of Kano on Saturday, scattering charred corpses and blood-and-soot covered plane seats through a terrified working-class neighborhood...

The real reason the seal hunt goes on
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"The dream of a market for seal meat goes back decades. Biologist David Lavigne, an expert on harp seals, still has a sample seal-meat TV-dinner box from the 1970s. It features a picture of a baby whitecoat, possibly not the best marketing strategy. But the real problem isn't marketing. It's the taste. Seal meat, if not heavily disguised to taste like something else, tastes terrible."

London Telegraph | Submitted by: wingnut
"Hundreds of SS veterans who fought for Germany during the Second World War are living quietly in Britain and attending secret reunions to celebrate their time under the Third Reich... SS veterans sing old Nazi songs at the gatherings, which have also been attended by members of the British National Party. At least one BNP member has been given honorary membership of the Hilfsgemeinschaft auf Gegenseitigkeit der Ehemaligen Soldaten der Waffen-SS." What an honor.

Gary Glitter turfed... from Cambodia
BBC | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Police say they cannot deport him because he has not broken any Cambodian laws. But the government is worried that Glitter's presence draws attention to the country's reputation as a sex tourism destination for paedophiles. Glitter's pop career ended in 1999 when he was convicted of making indecent images of children under 16 between January and November 1997." Police have asked him to leave voluntarily.

Remember the Alamo? Ozzy doesn't
BBC | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Presenting a slide show to the assembled journalists and celebrities, President Bush included a shot appearing to depict Vice President Dick Cheney urinating on his Oval office door. The joke was seemingly aimed at rocker Ozzy Osbourne, who in 1982 received a lifetime ban from the state of Texas after being arrested for urinating on the Alamo memorial."

Saddam receives Quran written in own blood
AFP | Submitted by: anonymous
This is an older story but complements one we posted a few days ago: "Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has taken delivery of a copy of the Quran he ordered written in his own blood to thank God for escaping unharmed from his long political career, Iraqi newspapers reported Sunday. The special-edition Quran, the Muslim holy book, took three years to finish and was handed over to Saddam during a ceremony Saturday at the Dar Al Nasser presidential palace in Baghdad, papers said."
