Anti-Testing Advocates Flood Congressional Staff Inboxes PK12: Did it work? Actually, it seemed to have made at least one aide pretty cranky. If you think a flood of 800-plus emails are enough to stop a government-supplied Blackberry in its tracks, you’re right. “This is bu… http://goo.gl/JwijCz

Turns out Fox 2 Detroit is a bit naive: http://t.co/HfzYrBFyBf

And admittedly so.

The Detroit Fox affiliate wrote, “Wow. Apparently, we’re a little naive,” after asking Facebook fans to explain the meaning of a public art installation involving a fist and a giant vat of Crisco.
Local artist Jerry Vile has created something he calls “Vessel of Hope”. He hopes it may in someway ease the pain of having the Detroit bankruptcy shoved into our faces. Can anyone explain what this means???
Something tells us this isn’t about shoving stuff in Detroit residents’ faces.
Oh dear. The Twitterverse was more than happy to provide the necessary lubrication to ease Fox 2 into understanding the “art.”
A fist? A can of Crisco? "Can anyone explain what this means???" asks Fox 2 Detroit. http://t.co/VpimTLozER

An Indian couple faced an unbelievable and horrific fate this week. Nidhi Barak, 20, and Dharmender Barak, 23, were a young couple in love. However, their families didn’t approve of the match. They were so against it that the couple eloped to nearby Dehli, but then their families seemed to have a change of heart and claimed they would approve of the match.
What happened next will make you sick to your stomach.
The couple were lured home by their families, who then proceeded to beat them both, lynch the woman and then beheaded the young man.
Their only crime was being in a relationship that their families didn’t approve of.
Police found Nidhi’s family as they were cremating her body. Dharmender’s body was intact and both have been sent for post-mortem. The authorities are now trying to track down the family members responsible for the brutal murders.
