William Shatner to star in a one-man Broadway show
(Thanks to jon harris, who adds, "We assume they mean one man in the audience.")
I'm in New York City today, I think. I started the weekend in Miami, but then on Sunday I flew all the way across North America and part of the Pacific Ocean to Honolulu, where I spoke Monday at the annual meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Then I immediately flew all the way BACK across part of the Pacific Ocean and all of North America, ending up here in New York, where tonight at 7 Alan Zweibel and I will be appearing at the Union Square Barnes and Noble with the wonderful Susie Essman of Curb Your Enthusiasm. We'll be talking about our new novel, Lunatics. At least Alan and Susie will be talking about it. I may be lying on the floor sound asleep, emitting a streamer of jetlag drool. It should be a fun night.
"Our dog was outside the bedroom door barking loudly," said Ms Dodd, 42, who lives in Darwin. "I opened the sliding door and saw the crocodile right outside the door. It is pretty full-on when there is a crocodile in your lounge room - I nearly died."

Police have released an image of a would-be thief's bum in the hope it could help them crack (sorry) an armed robbery case.
(Thanks to Ralph, who did not explain why the link says something about deer crashing...)

(This, for example, was caught by the aforementioned spam filter. And it would have been a tragedy to miss it. Many thanks to davcat for being concerned about the health of the bloglits.)
