It might have looked funny, but the consequences were serious. She spent the night in jail because police were afraid of the damage she might cause if she was allowed to drive home. In the end, she was also fined and had her license revoked for one year. Ms. Turner, who is an artist and grandmother of six, was widowed just five weeks ago; so she certainly has an excuse for being a bit off her game. Poor woman! She admits she drove the wrong way, "[M]y driving was not up to its usual high standards." However, she's not letting this get her down, "I am planning for my re-test already. But for the next year I am going to be catching buses." Let's hope that next time she hits the road in her jazzy Ford Fiesta, she'll be a bit more careful.

Robert Blake and girlfriend Amy Parker were laying flowers down at a memorial when they spotted "a man running away from the store." At first Blake assumed he was just a mourner in a hurry. But then the man jumped into a getaway car with another man, and drove off.
What at first seemed to be scattered flowers turned out to be broken glass, Parker said. She used her iPhone to call 911. Turns out, the thieves made off with "two dozen iPhones, plus iPads and laptops." No arrests have been made.
Until you remember that these cute little kitties are trapped in some lonely humane shelter, with no real human contact. Just robot cat toys, and someone like you, unseen and far away, who'll probably get bored of them in a few minutes and move on to the next link you see on Facebook.
Oh, but whatever. Go play with the kitties.
Well, the "like" from Dolores Apolinar, Benito's estranged wife, never came. That led to a confrontation. ("Your passive-aggressive withholding of a Facebook 'like' is the social media equivalent of spitting on my dear mother's grave, you heinous and unfeeling witch!" he did not say, but could have.)
Whatever words were exchanged, it quickly escalated into a physical altercation, during which Benito "hit" Dolores and "pulled her hair," according to the criminal complaint. Now he's facing battery charges.
Well, Mark Zuckerberg did say his mission with Facebook was to "make the world more connected."
If you thought Beyonce's pregnancy would slow her down, think again. Here's the new music video for her latest single, "Countdown." It's possible the video was recorded before she showed off her baby bump at the VMAs in late August. Either way, you'll have a hard time not enjoying the eye-popping visuals and booty-shaking dance moves.

Yeah, but how much money have they made for investors? Money is peace.
The three winners will split the $1.5 million three ways, but spend it together during an all-day "girls' day out" shopping excursion on either Rodeo Drive or their local outlet mall—whichever they feel like doing more.
