Make it stop

Make it stop

At least he knows he's free: A guy in Utah plans to commemorate the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by performing Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." 911 times.

The publicity has already landed him an extended booking, courtesy the CIA, at an undisclosed location in Romania.

Harry back in uniform: Having slept off his Vegas vacation, Britain's Prince Harry on Friday began a four-month combat tour in Afghanistan as a gunner on an Apache attack helicopter.

For British officials, any concerns about the safety of the 27-year-old Harry are outweighed by relief over the fact that at the air base in ultraconservative Afghanistan, there is no booze, no billiards tables, and, most importantly, no women with cell phone cameras.

Bring your whole paycheck: Aggressive expansion by Whole Foods has forced many cooperative grocery stores to make changes to stay relevant.

So keep that in mind if you start seeing $69.99 balsamic vinegar alongside the herbal supplements and sprouted grains.
