Oregon cat that trapped family to get therapy
The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they're not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy.
On the 911 call, Palmer tells the dispatcher he kicked the cat "in the rear" to protect his child. Palmer says the animal then "just went off over the edge" -- leading Palmer and his girlfriend to barricade themselves, their baby and the family dog in the bedroom for safety.
The cat can be heard screeching in the background of the call as Palmer says in a panicked voice: "He's charging us. He's at our bedroom door."

Federal prosecutors in the state of Jalisco said Monday the man was using his personal computer to pitch guided children's camping trips to a group of parents at a school when the pornographic images popped up, apparently because he opened the wrong file.

Washington man killed by bus inside zombie attraction corn maze
Published October 11, 2014
HAUSER, Idaho – Authorities say a Washington state man has been struck and killed by a bus inside a zombie attraction at an Idaho corn maze.
The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Jeremy T. McSpadden Jr., of Spokane Valley, Washington, was a role player in the "Zombie Slayer Paintball Bus" at the Incredible Corn Maze in Hauser on Friday night.
According to the corn maze website, the attraction is new this season. For $15, customers ride the bus and shoot paint balls at the zombies as the vehicle creeps through the corn maze.
I can't decide whether the person who came up with this business concept deserves praise or not.

Manila traffic enforcers to wear diapers during pope's visit
MANILA, Philippines – When Pope Francis visits the Philippines next week, traffic enforcers won't let the capital's streets get gridlocked if they have to answer the call of nature.
About 2,000 traffic enforcers who will be on duty during the Jan. 15-19 papal visit will be required to wear adult diapers, said Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairman Francis Tolentino.
Tolentino also encouraged people who will wait for hours to see the pope to also wear diapers.
Priests, nuns, seminarians, and the elderly also should consider wearing diapers, he said.
Asked if he will also wear one, Tolentino said, "I will try, but in my case, I have less hydration."
