Our top story...

As a member of the media elite, I often come across news stories that I think I ought to call to your attention. So here's a little roundup of stories you might have missed.

The New York Times reported that many former college and current pro-team cheerleaders work day jobs as pharmaceutical representatives. It's good to see you can go from breaking hearts to selling drugs that mend them.

A group in Washington, DC is collecting signatures in the hope of nominating talk show host Oprah Winfrey for the Nobel Peace Prize next year. Oprah's great, but her fans are confused. They must think it's the "Noble Prize." Not the first time a transposition error has doomed a well-intentioned group. Bad spellers once tried to organize, but their efforts floundered when they urged one another to "untie."

And in Maine, a lingerie shop is trying to give business a lift by putting live models in its windows. It has some shoppers wondering if Augusta has been stripped of its moral standing, and others saying "Tata" to downtown shopping. But I wonder if it increases the chances of a hold-up.

Who picked these lingerie models? They look like the girls in high school who were all knocked up at age 16.

Unfortunately, NaturalBlog put up the wrong picture, Mrs. S. That's the new reverse maternity ward at Mass General where you can look through the glass and see the mothers rather than the babies.
