    December 20, 2003 --Talk about a happy meal.
    When she pulled up to a McDonald's drive-through in Weston, Fla., Janice Meissner ordered a hot bagel and a soda. But what she got was thousands of dollars in a zippered bag - the eatery's bank-deposit money.Meissner immediately returned the cold cash. McDonald's will be sending the woman a thank-you letter and a $50 gift certificate.

    Default Oh, Brothel

    BERLIN (Reuters) - The German city of Cologne is
    resorting to a "sex tax" on brothels to boost its revenues
    after national reforms left local authorities short of cash.
    City authorities confirmed Friday they were extending the
    existing "pleasure tax" -- already levied on casinos and
    amusement arcades -- to brothels, erotic massage parlors
    and table-dancing clubs.
    Cologne expects to triple its pleasure tax revenues, Inge
    Schuermann, a city spokeswoman told Reuters.
    "This is about making taxes fair but also because we are
    more than up to our necks in financial problems," she said,
    shortly after Germany's parliament approved the country's
    biggest welfare shake-up in decades.

    Talking The Bush Battle....so to speak?

    Paris Hilton beats Bush in TV ratings
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - He may have beaten Saddam Hussein, but
    President George W. Bush got clobbered by slinky socialite
    Paris Hilton when her television show got higher ratings than
    Bush's exclusive ABC interview Tuesday night.
    More Americans watched Fox's "The Simple Life," which
    depicts the 22-year-old hotel heiress working on an Arkansas
    farm, than saw Bush being interviewed by Diane Sawyer, Nielsen
    Media Research said on Thursday.
    "The Simple Life" may have been helped by the public saga
    of a video, making the rounds of the Internet, showing the
    granddaughter of hotel chain founder Conrad Hilton engaged in
    various sex acts with ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon.
    "The Simple Life" drew 11.8 million viewers while Bush's
    ABC "Prime Time" interview drew 11 million, Nielsen said.
    In the interview, the president made headlines by saying
    the recently captured ex-Iraqi leader should be executed -- the
    "ultimate penalty" -- for his iron-fisted rule in Iraq.
    But Hilton won more viewers with her performance baking
    pies and working the town fair's kissing booth in a mini
    skirt.

    Post Do you believe in ghosts?

    LONDON (AP) - Are there ghostly goings-on at Henry VIII's
    palace, or is that hazy image of a fellow in fancy robes just a bit
    of Christmas cheer?
    Closed-circuit security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, the
    huge Tudor castle outside London, seem to have snagged an ethereal
    visitor. Could it be a ghost?
    "We're baffled too - it's not a joke, we haven't manufactured
    it," said Vikki Wood, a Hampton Court spokeswoman, when asked if
    the photo the palace released was a Christmas hoax. "We genuinely
    don't know who it is or what it is."
    Wood said security guards had seen the figure in closed-circuit
    television footage after checking it to see who kept leaving open
    one of the palace's fire doors.
    In the still photograph, the figure of a man in a robe-like
    garment is shown stepping from the shadowy doorway, one arm
    reaching out for the door handle.
    The area around the man is somewhat blurred, and his face
    appears unnaturally white compared with his outstretched hand.
    "It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn't look
    human," said James Faukes, one of the palace security guards.
    "My first reaction was that someone was having a laugh, so I
    asked my colleagues to take a look. We spoke to our costumed
    guides, but they don't own a costume like that worn by the figure.
    It is actually quite unnerving," Faukes said.
    The palace, built in 1525 on the River Thames 10 miles west of
    central London, is a popular tourist attraction and some of the
    guides wear costumes of the Tudor period.
    Wood said she was hoping people would come forward with similar
    stories and try to explain the figure.
    The palace has been the scene of many dramatic royal events, and
    already is supposed to have a few ghosts.
    King Henry VIII's third wife, Jane Seymour, died there giving
    birth to a son, and her ghost is said to walk through one of the
    cobbled courtyards carrying a candle.
    Her son, Edward, had a nurse called Sibell Penn who was buried
    in the palace grounds in 1562. In 1829 her tomb was disturbed by
    building work, and around the same time an odd whirring noise began
    to be heard in the southwest wing of the palace. When workmen
    traced the strange sounds to a brick wall, they uncovered a small
    forgotten room containing an old spinning wheel, just like the one
    Penn used to use.
    Henry's fifth wife, Catherine Howard, condemned for adultery,
    was held at the palace under house arrest before her execution at
    the Tower of London. An 1897 book about the palace says she was
    reportedly seen, dressed in white and floating down one of the
    galleries uttering unearthly shrieks.
    The palace was once a prison for King Charles I, who later was
    beheaded, and then home to his nemesis Oliver Cromwell, who briefly
    ruled when Britain was for a short time a republic.

    December 22, 2003 --Priests in Ireland are cracking down on risqué behavior at funerals after one rollicking service featured mourners downing pints of beer around the coffin and draping women's panties around the body. The Dublin-based National Center for Liturgy, which monitors church rituals, was so furious at the party-like atmosphere, it's also banning dirty jokes and cursing by those giving eulogies, no matter how bawdy a character the deceased was.

    Red face OH MY....

    Okla. family buries wrong man due to prison mix-up
    OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Oklahoma family that
    thought they had just buried a son who killed himself in prison
    received a phone call after returning from the funeral from the
    supposed dead man who said he was very much alive.
    The relatives of Kevin Wyckoff, an inmate in Oklahoma's
    Lexington Correctional Facility, were the victims of a case of
    mistaken identity, prison officials said Tuesday.
    The family was sent the body of another inmate of similar
    physical characteristics as their son. The two inmates had
    recently switched cells, which led to prison officials being
    confused about their identities, they said.
    "On Friday, an inmate committed suicide by hanging himself.
    Our chart reflected it was Kevin Wyckoff who was supposed to be
    in that cell," prison spokesman Jerry Massie said.
    The inmate who was buried appears to be Steven Howe, Massie
    said. Howe was serving a sentence for driving under the
    influence and attempting to elude a police officer. Wyckoff is
    serving a sentence for assault with a deadly weapon and
    kidnapping.
    The body of the buried prisoner will be exhumed and then a
    medical examiner will confirm the identity, prison officials
    said.
    The Wyckoff family has told reporters they are happy their
    son is still alive but they have a few questions for prison
    officials, including who will pick up the tab for the funeral.

    Post HUH?

    BOSTON, Dec 23 (Reuters) - The Roman Catholic Archdiocese
    of Boston on Tuesday demanded the removal of an animal rights
    group's billboard advertisement depicting the Virgin Mary
    cradling a lifeless chicken in her arms.
    The ad by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
    features the tagline "Go Vegetarian -- It's an Immaculate
    Conception," a reference to teachings about Mary's purity.
    But the church said the billboard was "offensive at any
    time" and especially so during the Christmas season.
    "Why any organization would seek to garner goodwill for
    itself and its message by promoting an ad campaign that is so
    offensive to a large number of people within the community is
    unclear," the archdiocese said in a statement.
    "What is clear is that if PETA truly cares about ethical
    behavior, the billboard message should be taken down as soon as
    possible," it added.
    PETA said it has no plans to take down the billboard in
    Boston.
    PETA said a similar advertisement went up in Providence,
    Rhode Island, earlier this month but was quickly removed by the
    billboard's owner amid similar complaints from Catholics
    there.

    Talking Screw Loose

    Loose screw halts Spanish nuclear power station
    MADRID, Spain (Reuters) - A Spanish nuclear power station
    has been shut indefinitely because of a small missing screw
    weighing less than an ounce that fell off a machine during
    refueling, nuclear officials.
    The Zorita plant, located in the central Castille-La Mancha
    region, will reopen only after a full report on the screw is
    completed, a spokesman for the national Nuclear Security
    Council told Reuters.
    Staff searched for the screw with cameras, but after
    failing to locate it on film, they concluded it must have
    slipped into an area that was inaccessible to cameras, the
    spokesman said.
    He said it was unlikely the missing screw would present any
    risk.

    Talking Got a Yen for cash?

    TOKYO (AP) - A man who wanted to share his stock market winnings
    with the public tossed 1 million yen (US$9,350) from the
    observatory deck of a tower in central Japan on Tuesday, causing a
    scramble for the money in the streets below.
    The unidentified man grabbed wads of one-dollar and 100-yen
    (US$0.93) bills from two shopping bags and stuffed them through an
    open grill from a room at the TV Tower in the city of Nagoya. The
    room is 100 meters (330 feet) above the street.
    The money - one-dollar and 100-yen (US$0.93) bills - rained on
    the sidewalks and streets about 100 meters (330 feet) below, where
    people chased the wind-blown bills. The 100-yen bill is no longer
    in circulation.
    Afterward, the man told NHK television that he wanted to give
    away some of his profits from playing the stock market earlier this
    month.
    "I have too much money. I don't need it," he said. "I wanted
    to give some back to the world."
    Aichi prefecture (state) police official Tatsuyuki Satomi said
    none of the bills appeared to be counterfeited. The 26-year-old
    man, who is unemployed and lives in neighboring Gifu city, told
    police he had exchanged the dollars at Nagoya airport and bought
    the 100-yen bills over the Internet.
    He didn't break any laws, Satomi said.
    Nagoya, Japan's fourth-largest city, is located 269 kilometers
    (168 miles) west of Tokyo.

    Kenyan man chops off testicle in row with wife
    NAIROBI, Dec 22 (Reuters) - A Kenyan man chopped off one of
    his testicles in a row with his wife and then walked naked to a
    police station to report the incident, police said on Monday.
    Police rushed 26-year-old Stephen Ongala to hospital after
    he stumbled into their police station in the border town of
    Busia in western Kenya on Friday bleeding heavily.
    "He said he did it because he had had a disagreement with
    his wife," said deputy police chief Shadrack Maithya. "If we get
    evidence that he tried to take his life, then we may charge him
    because it is a criminal offence."

    December 24, 2003 -- A robber broke into song in an Illinois court in a bid to get a reduced sentence - but he hit a sour note with the judge, who hit him with 12 years behind bars. James Reid, 20, stunned Circuit Judge Annette Eckert in Belleville by belting out a gospel hymn that he composed himself, admitting he knocked over a Taco Bell restaurant and singing: "God has changed that man. I'm doing the best I can." But his plea apparently fell on deaf ears.

    German firefighters rescue flock of seagulls
    MUNICH, Germany, Dec 25 (Reuters) - Munich firefighters were
    called out on Christmas day to rescue a flock of seagulls that
    got stuck when a lake near the city's Olympic stadium froze
    over.
    "They didn't notice it was getting colder and their tails
    got frozen stuck," a fire brigade spokesman said on Thursday.
    "We were able to help most wiggle free but one bird was so stuck
    so we had to cut out the whole chunk of ice and take the whole
    thing back to the station."

    26 December 2003: Possibly Rabid Racoon Becomes Dinner


    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A fraternity member was treated for possible exposure to rabies, and he and two others could be expelled for beating, skinning and then eating a raccoon that might have had the disease, the fraternity's president said.

    The men had spotted the raccoon behaving erratically outside the Phi Kappa Psi house at the University of Georgia on Dec. 12. One hit it with construction pylon and shot it with a pellet gun in the fraternity's parking lot, Athens-Clarke County Animal Control officials said. Another skinned the raccoon, and a third cooked and ate some of its meat.

    Erratic behavior can be a symptom of rabies in an animal, but the raccoon could not be tested because its carcass was burned. At least one fraternity member was treated for possible exposure to rabies, which can be fatal if left untreated.

    The three members involved will go before the fraternity's grievance committee and face possible sanctions from reprimands to expulsion, said Larry Bales, fraternity president.


    ``It was a ridiculous situation - an isolated incident,'' Bales said. ``It was not a fraternity-sanctioned event.''
    ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

    Talking

    PARIS, Dec 26 (Reuters) - A pair of thieves who seized a van
    loaded with pricey designer goods on Wednesday took a two-hour
    detour so they could drive the owner home for his Christmas Eve
    dinner, before fleeing with the loot.
    Posing as police, the two men tricked the van driver into
    pulling over at a motorway intersection on the edge of Paris by
    chasing him in a car fitted with a flashing blue light, a siren
    and a "police" sign, local media reported on Friday.
    Despite being armed with guns and wearing balaclavas, the
    thieves showed some seasonal goodwill when they asked their
    victim where he lived, explaining "we don't want you to have too
    far to walk," according to police sources.
    They then drove the man around 300 km (185 miles) to his
    home in Saint Soupplets in eastern France, so he could arrive in
    time for the traditional Christmas meal which in France is eaten
    on the evening of December 24.
    Showing that Christmas spirit only goes so far, the man,
    whose van was loaded with clothes from labels like Gucci and
    Yves Saint Laurent, has filed a complaint with police.

    ATHENS, Dec 26 (Reuters) - The crew of a freighter that
    half-sunk off the Greek island of Santorini on Christmas Eve
    spent Christmas Day thanking the coastguard for rescuing them,
    only to be arrested on Boxing Day for smuggling.
    The North Korean-flagged Elisabeth hit an islet southwest of
    Santorini during a storm on Wednesday. Coastguard officers
    evacuated the eight-man Ukrainian crew and took them to hospital
    for checks, inspecting the ship the next day once weather
    allowed.
    "When the coastguard went to check for spills and boarded
    the ship, they found it did not carry cement as declared, but
    around 35 tonnes of smuggled cigarettes," a Merchant Marine
    Ministry spokesman said on Friday.
    The crew's rescue had been featured on Greek television as a
    heart-warming tale on Christmas Day, with crew members offering
    thanks and season's greetings. All have been arrested on charges
    of smuggling, the spokesman added.

    December 28, 2003 --A friendly Christmas-lights competition in Florida turned nasty when one of the losers went berserk and began tearing lights off the winner's display. First-place champ Donna Simmons-Groover of Jensen Beach said she watched in horror as her neighbor told her he should have won, then went berserk and attacked her lights. Cops may now charge the Scrooge with vandalism.

    SACRAMENTO, California (AP) - The children of a cancer patient
    who donated his body for research filed a lawsuit after learning
    their father's embalmed head was kept in a tool shed for nearly 11
    years.
    The head of Osie K. Whitten, who died Dec. 24, 1990, of colon
    cancer, was among 150 pounds (67.5 kilograms) of human cadaver
    parts allegedly removed from the medical center at the University
    of California, Davis, by a former autopsy assistant.
    David Lawrence Beale, who worked for Pathology Support Services
    Inc., which managed the medical center's morgue and autopsy
    service, was arrested last summer after the remains were found
    among his belongings.
    He pleaded not guilty to charges of receiving stolen property
    and possession of methamphetamines. Police say Beale told them he
    used the remains to hone his dissection skills.
    The medical center, Beale and Pathology Support Services were
    named in the lawsuit filed by Whitten's children.
    The medical center said it could not comment; it previously said
    it had changed the way human remains are handled. Pathology Support
    Services said Beale's activities were not part of his job.
