Listening to: Pete and The Pirates...a lot!

According to the Detroit Free Press' site, today's most popular non-sports-related articles are...
...what, i gotta add one of my smart-ass comments to this?

But, just in case, like my link to Detroit's third-place national ranking in bedbugs disappeared, here's a brief rundown...

A 32-year-old Clinton Township, Rahsaan Lavonte Thedford, man could spend up to 10 years in jail if convicted of biting off his wife's eyelid during an argument.

"I find this crime absolutely heinous," St. Clair Shores Police Detective Margaret Eidt said today. "In 18 years of being a police officer and detective, this is the first time I've ever seen a case like this."

Eidt said Thedford's wife called police from her car outside her St. Clair Shores home at 4 a.m. on May 8, Mother's Day.

In the Mother’s Day incident, Thedford is accused of punching his wife in the face when: "He was on top of her, leaned over and bit her eyelid off,” Eidt said.

Police caught him about a block away, trying to climb under a chain-link fence to hide in a yard, Eidt added.

By one estimate, there are about 657,000 feral cats in metro Detroit -- that's 16 cats for every seat at Comerica Park. The cat population strains animal control and animal welfare groups, which say they have limited money and space.

And as far as the Kilpatrick book...well...celebrity porn is/has been/will be what it is. Famous, infamous...

Ah, and one last link under the most commented section (and the headline says it all)...

Moving right along, today is a national holiday here in Italy: the anniversary of the founding of the Italian republic in 1946 as well as the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy. I will also refrain from wisecracks here as well. Here's the BBC's photo...
The link will take you to the BBC Week in Pictures. It's the fifth photo from the left.
