This week in the news

No word on whether it has gnashing teeth. A giant rabbit is wreaking terror in a village in northern England, where it is eating people's vegetables. It has been described alternately as a "brute" and a "monster."

What's next? Shiv nite in the shop? The "recreation officer" at a Massachusetts prison is in trouble after showing Brokeback Mountain at movie night. Officials say the problem was not the gay friendly theme, but the sexually explicit scenes.

Big whoop. When I was his age, I'd already written an opera. A four-year-old Indian boy is thought to be the world's youngest marathoner. Apparently his coach is catching some flak, though, because he makes the little tyke run five marathons a week. He also swims for an hour each afternoon, because he's an overachiever.

And finally. This is as good a place as any to pose this question: What is up with Manny's hair this season?
