What's in the news

An insect, Orectochilus orbisonorum, has been named after the late Roy Orbison and his widow Barbara.

Guardian reports that the rats that may have swum ashore from the Spinningdale, a ship that hit rocks off the archipelago of St. Kilda last week, may threaten the birds on the island.

According to the New York Times, double-dipping a la George Costanza of Seinfeld fame, may indeed spread bacteria.

A new study, reported in a recent Denver Post article, found that collisions with wildlife on highways have increased.

I heard on the radio earlier this evening that a large number of rat-traps set up on St Kilda have caught no rats, so it looks as if none got ashore.

Really, who needs Drudge when you are around to keep us all up to date?

Let me see if I have this right: Roy Orbison washed ashore and found deer squeezins'? I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings! ;)
