Nothing to see here, folks: As promised, prosecutors in Miami released police video Thursday of Justin Bieber giving a urine sample for a drug test after his DUI arrest, with the naughty bits blacked out as ordered by a judge, who said the pop star “still retains his expectation of dignity”.

Balloon animals, too: A subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway has purchased AA Party Rentals, which has done business in the Puget Sound area for more than 40 years.
