The Morning News: Puppies Saved a Boy's Life! Other Stuff Happened Too.

Posted by on Fri, Oct 19, 2012 at 8:29 AM

Car Bomb in Beirut: Eight dead and at least 78 injured.

Malala Yousufzai Is Able to Stand: The young Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban can stand and write, and is "not out of the woods yet," but "doing very well."

More Good News: The Canadian Border Guard who was shot earlier this week has taken her first steps since the shooting.

Have You Gotten Your Ballot Yet?: Our endorsements and voting cheat sheet are RIGHT HERE!

Another Ones Bites the Dust (And by 'Bites the Dust' I Mean 'Gets Arrested'): "U.S. authorities said a man arrested in San Diego on child pornography charges was linked to a plot by a Bangladeshi man to set off a bomb at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the New York Times reported."

Cheater!: A man working for the Virginia Republican party was arrested after allegedly throwing out voter registration forms—he "faces 13 felony and misdemeanor counts relating to voter fraud, including one count of obstruction of justice, four counts of destruction of voter registration applications and eight counts of disclosure of voter registration applications."

LOL: President Obama and Romney made jokes at the Al Smith dinner. I wonder if Mitt resurected his joke about how it'd be easier to win the election if he were Latino. HAR HAR! He's such a goof.

PUPPIES!: A 10-year-old boy got lost in the woods and was kept warm overnight by PUPPIES. Awwww!

Starbucks Has Opened in Mumbai: They'll offer Elaichi Mawa croissants and tandoori paneer rolls.

Hockey Talks Continue: There was a meeting between the NHL and the NHLPA in Toronto yesterday that LEAD TO NOWHERE. The longer this continues, the more obvious it is that both sides are spoiled fucking babies and if they don't play hockey soon, I'm going to become a fucking baseball fan. Okay? How about that!? GET ON THE ICE, MILLIONAIRES.

GRRL Army Paints Again: An abandoned hotel on Aurora is now pink.

Tom Hanks Said "Fucking" on Good Morning America: Oops.

"I liked going in and making people really mad...": Reddit's most prolific troll, Violentacres, AKA Michael Brutsch, was interviewed on CNN last night, his first interview since his identity was revealed last week.

PLEASE become a baseball fan. Hockey makes golf look exciting. Hockey coverage makes bowling coverage look exciting. This lockout is a great gift to be enjoyed.

On the one hand Megan I am so with you: I just want hockey to start. I just want this whole thing resolved and for the players to get out there on the ice. On the other hand, how would you like it if you knew your boss was making more and more and more money every year, had put restrictions on your salary a few years back and now wants to put more restrictions on your salary so that you make less money than you're making now while your boss continues to rake in more and more and more and more? I want hockey but the NHLPA is getting fucked over here. They may be rich and they may play a sport for a living but they're still getting fucked.

@ 1 has obviously never watched hockey. That, or he has a rather inverse way of deciding what's "exciting."

Go figure. Turns out the GOP was correct all along and voter fraud actually IS a problem worth addressing.

I might actually go to a starbucks if I could get a tandoori paneer roll. Sounds like breakfast.

Tom Hanks deserves his nominations and wins for Cloud Atlas.

Also, all The Stranger peeps will love all the gay sex.

I live near that now-pink Aurora motel. I think the PI put a really lame spin on that story. Why would people complain about the GRRL Army's "graffiti"? That place was an abandoned, dark hole and their painting positive messages to sex workers was definitely an improvement.

@6 but only with far right extremists.

Like al-Qaeda. And that group that rhymes with Publicant.

That ViolentAcrez vid makes me angry. He's still so full of rationalization and self-adoration. Grrrr
