Hot on their trail

Hot on their trail

Ripped from the headlines: Among the evidence that police ... ah ... tracked during an investigation of a home invasion robbery in Everett was a trail of dog poop that one of the suspects is believed to have stepped in and left behind in the getaway car.

Fortunately for all concerned, Colton Harris-Moore, the Barefoot Bandit, was not involved.


Dust in the wind: The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, currently scouting landing sites for the Curiosity rover, got a stunning shot of a 12-mile high dust devil on the planet's surface.

Curiosity, once it arrives, will be searching for evidence that Mars once harbored life. Based on the size of the dust devils, we're hoping the rover finds evidence of giant dust bunnies.


A toast to happiness: Authorities in the Central Asian nation of Turkmenistan have banned the sale of alcohol during "Health and Happiness Week," a celebration announced by the country's fitness-obsessed autocrat Gurbanguly Berdmukhamedov.

Anyone showing signs of public drunkenness will be asked to perform a field sobriety test that includes walking a straight line and quickly repeating the name of Gurbanguly Berdmukhamedov.
