Trophy finger — Killing an Afghan civilian is bad enough. But keeping a human finger as a trophy? That's just twisted. But that's what Boise soldier Andrew Holmes has been accused of doing. He's now before a military court for his pretrial hearing. His attorney, meanwhile, says that Holmes is not only innocent, he's being used as a pawn in a cover-up by his team leader. (KREM)

Gas station grapefruits — Convenience store food has long has a reputation for its... fascinating character. But now, through the Healthy Corner Store program, the convenience stores have gone overboard. Now they're selling fresh fruits and vegetables. Gross. (KXLY)
