"A dispute over a blueberry pie is believed to have started a chain of events that ended in the apparent murder-suicide of a husband and wife married for more than 20 years, investigators said... Pearle Cogswell's body was in the kitchen and her husband's body was 6 feet away with a handgun at his side, the spokesman said. The freshly baked blueberry pie was still on the countertop."

Automatic surveillance of cars in California
San Francisco Chronicle | Submitted by: f00f
"Similar to systems in Houston and New York, the project will track electronic toll payment devices affixed to the windshields of more than 250,000 vehicles, using radio-based sensors mounted on highway signs every few miles. And to the dismay of some FasTrak users, it's not optional; the only way to avoid triggering the sensors throughout nine Bay Area counties is to stash the transponder in Mylar bags, which will be provided to nervous motorists."

Scientist seeks the perfect pee
News Corporation | Submitted by: wingnut
"Dr Rane said he was conducting a large study at Townsville Hospital to find out which is better: a toilet with a seat or the third world squat toilet. "The jury is still out... If the jury comes back saying the hole in the ground is the best way to go, I think some serious decisions will have to be made all over the developed world."

Teacher trades grades for morphine lollipops
Salt Lake Tribune | Submitted by: Agent Orange
"In Utah, an extremely moralistic and proper State, 29 year old Kevin Poulsen [not the SecurityFocus reporter of the same name], a computer and mythology teacher at Payson High School, is looking down the barrel of a life-sentence. Poulsen allegedly bought Oxycontin, Lortab and morphine lollipops from one of his pupils and, in order to stay in the favor of his intrepid young supplier, would help him cheat on homework and tests." This hardly seems like a fair trade.

Cops drag dead horse through town
Springfield State Journal-Register | Submitted by: Gutter Juice
Three Taylorville police drag a dead horse through town, and the video of this public incident is being withheld because of "privacy concerns". Officers of the law concerned about privacy should perhaps not drag horses through the town public square. "Two officers received letters of reprimand, and the third received a two-day suspension without pay. The document does not identify the officers."

D.A.R.E. a total failure
Dayton Daily News | Submitted by: Idle Hands
"More than a dozen national studies have shown that the program does little to prevent substance abuse among students. The latest study, issued Saturday by researchers at the University of North Carolina, disclosed that programs such as D.A.R.E. with 'just say no' messages have not yielded results that schools should expect. 'Thereís no scientific rationale whatsoever for maintaining D.A.R.E. in the schools,' said Denise Hallfors, a substance abuse prevention researcher at the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, a nonprofit group. She was at the University of North Carolina when she conducted the research. 'Itís not a very good use of taxpayer money.'"

Bush wants to play Coast Guard to the world
San Antonio Express-News | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Moving to widen its hunt for terrorists and cut off their weapons routes at sea, the Bush administration is negotiating agreements with dozens of nations for new powers to police the world's waters, defense officials said. The plan being developed, which hasn't yet been approved by the Pentagon, builds on the months-old ship interdiction operation started largely to capture al-Qaida members fleeing Afghanistan across international waters, four officials said on condition of anonymity."
