This thread is for interesting, funny or thought-provoking news stories. Let's avoid overtly political stuff and save big stories for dedicated threads.

Here's a start.

Interesting, and the full report might explain things better, because otherwise there's quite a leap of logic involved! Good find though.

Five armed assailants broke into the home of US veteran Bob Strait, 90 and his wife Nancy, 85. The assailants brutalized the couple and raped Nancy, who died the next day.

Well Anderson Cooper came out, which seemed to be a surprise to no one (I dunno the only vibe I ever got from him was "android")
Also, Andy Griffith died at 86 :(
