News of the Day: August 8

Posted in News at 11:39 pm by Katharine Lackey

While everyone else is paying attention to the Olympics and Edwards affair, here’s some stories that caught my attention:

  • A trail of Cheetos led police to thieves, the Pioneer Press reports. It seems that three teens were suspected of pilfering candy from a vending machine. Here’s how it happened: “Police followed a trail of Cheetos from the rec center, around the side of the building and to a home in the 600 block of Rose Avenue, where a witness said she saw the suspects go, the complaint said.” Apparently they don’t believe in Holy Cheesus!
  • It’s the invasion of the pigeon-snatchers in New York City’s Chinatown, the New York Times blogs. Apparently this happens all the time in the city.
  • The Center for Disease Control released its list of the hardest drinking cities, with Austin ending up on top, ABC News reports. Milwaukee ranks second, followed by Providence, R.I., Chicago and San Francisco. Just one Northeastern state — how odd.
