AZ Central | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Distraught warehouse workers dug frantically through a mountain of frozen food Saturday morning after tons collapsed on one of their colleagues. But they later learned the man had died. ... Somehow, five of the 50-foot-high racks, holding thousands of 1,750-pound pallets began to topple. They took each other out in a domino effect, causing the ceiling to collapse and one wall to bulge out."

Canada's terrorism case seemingly tenuous
canada.com | Submitted by: Gorg
"The men, all Pakistanis who entered Canada before Sept. 5, 2001, were arrested in raids last week by RCMP and city police officers in Toronto and surrounding suburbs... A four-page intelligence briefing called 'Reasons for Detention' presented at their detention-review hearing this week states that one was taking lessons to be a commercial multi-engine pilot and his training flight path went over the Pickering nuclear plant east of Toronto. ... Manny Rosario, a manager at Durham Flight School near the Pickering plant, said he routinely has students from many countries including Pakistan but he doesn't recall any flying over the nuclear site. Since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, students fly around -- rather than over -- the plant unless they are under radar control and directed to do so by a controller, he said."

Innovative new way to beat your children
Chicago Sun-Times | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"It is shaped like a billy club, about a foot long, covered in high-density fabric with a nonallergenic soft filling, to give it about the consistency of a pin cushion. It is a very soft thing that still manages to sting when you are hit with it. ... 'I just want to provide an alternative to a piece of leather, a strap, things that can actually injure a child. ... It's really just a harmless way of getting a small child's attention.'"
