"After nearly 15 years on the lam, during which he served a stint in the Greek army and started a family, Papakostas was formally sentenced Thursday to eight years in prison. He could have stayed on the run much longer had he not reintroduced himself earlier this month to Mark Skurka, the assistant district attorney who prosecuted Papakostas." DOH!

"A Mary Kay cosmetics saleswoman may have been trying to win one of the company's famous pink Cadillacs when she dropped off a sample of her wares Wednesday at a southwest Houston bank.

Tombstones as comic books
New York Times | Submitted by: anonymous
"But when a citizen of Sapanta dies, Dumitru Pop, a farmer, woodcarver and poet, gathers his notebook, chisels and paintbrushes and prepares to carve a poetic and pictorial homage of the deceased onto an oak grave marker in what villagers now call the Merry Cemetery, beside the Church of the Assumption.

Man stabs dead mother to prevent vampirism
Pravda | Submitted by: george_lazenby
"According to Religia v Rossii referring to "reports from Romania," Nikolae Mikhut, the son, saw that a cat had climbed into his motherís coffin. According to Romanian folklore, this signifies that the person in the coffin could become a vampire. Moreover, Mikhut noticed (or it just seemed to him) that his motherís lips and cheeks were too pink, as if she were not dead at all."

Hot for teacher

The Male Senior Citizen and the Sea
New York Times | Submitted by: Serpiente
Kids these days are not just being protected from seeing nudity and drinking alcohol. They are protected from reading about it in classic novels. It seems sensitivity guidelines for the Regents have castrated several novels and removed references to race, religion, nudity, alcohol, drugs, and even Jews and Gentiles.

Hey man, that's Knot funny!
ESPN | Submitted by: Drew
I don't think there's any doubt to who won the Holyfield-Rahman fight. If there was ever a boxing injury to be referred to as "Rotten", it sure as hell is this one. "I didn't think he could do so much damage with his head," Rahman said. "He must have a metal plate in there or something." After an ass whomping like that, at least he still has a sense of humor. "I have a cut in the middle of my forehead, and an extra head on my head," Rahman said. Accompanied by a great photo.
