The ridiculous: armed guards hunt were-rabbit as reported in The Guardian. Hee hee.
The sublime: this article in today's Victoria Times-Colonist about the "eagle-cam" on Hornby Island apparently attracting thousands if not millions of viewers. The greatest irony, of course, is that the article will increase the traffic to the site that is apparently causing the server to crash and the host to have to pay very large amounts of money to support. Be prepared to sit through some advertising before the nest appears. But it's worth the wait.
