    Is Slick Willie up to his old tricks? Some Twitter comedians seem to think so. This picture above purports to be the former president standing next to the wife and daughter of New York City grocery magnate John Catsimatidis, the owner and CEO of Gristedes Foods, the largest grocery chain in Manhattan, along with other ventures. This Bill Clinton image ran wild across social media, and for whatever reason, the wife was cropped out in some of the retweets. “It was at a recent function with the Catsimatidis family that the buzz-building photo was apparently taken, with the former president...

    ....Obama may be the President of the United States, but for a few minutes on Monday, he was also Stephen Colbert, outgoing host of "The Colbert Report." Obama, who sat down for an interview with Colbert in Washington, surprised the host and took over the taping for a segment. "You've been taking a lot of shots at my job, I've decided to take a shot at yours," Obama said before taking over for Colbert on "The Word," a segment where Colbert (in this case, Obama) says a line or two before a witty word or phrases flashes to the right....

    Jeremy McNaughton won’t quickly forget his encounter with a rogue beaver that attacked him off the shores of Nova Scotia. The 23-year-old Halifax man was snorkelling in Spanish Ship Bay, near Sherbrooke, with a couple of friends, when one of them looked down and noticed an animal of generous proportions with reddish-brown fur following them. “I thought it must be a seal,” said Paul Skerry, who was in the water with McNaughton, due to the sheer size of the creature, which he estimates weighed nearly 50 pounds. Never suspecting its true identity, considering beavers live exclusively in freshwater, Skerry couldn’t...

Employees of an airline catering company allegedly collected the packages after the planes landed. The California-born Brandt, 45, was accused...

So the ACLU, which has repeatedly shown to wield tremendous power in the Obama administration, fired off a letter demanding that the...
