MORNING HEADLINES: Inland Northwest (of Kyrgyzstan) edition

Posted By on Wed, Oct 13, 2010 at 8:08 AM

Artificial fuzz With all the controversy about Spokane’s actual law enforcement officers, the last thing anyone wants to deal with is fake police. But that's exactly what one Gonzaga University student ran into when a "police officer" stopped her, searched her car, and then left her. Suspicious, she called the police.

A heartwarming tale. With lawyers You know that dog you got from SpokAnimal three years ago? What if all of a sudden, after you'd fallen in love with its adorable wuff and wuvable personality, his old owners came looking for him.

In my day, we just settled it the old-fashioned way — with both of us calling to the dog, and he'd run to whoever he truly loved more. (SR)

This program may not be suitable for miners Viewer discretion is advised. In the best kind of media spectacle, a third of the Chilean Miners have been brought to the service, in full view of waiting cameras and a world on the edge of their respective seats. (NYT)
