The Great Escape Well, I managed to escape my villainous vermin captors.

I am hoping not to be forced to get a cat since I don't much like cats. I do love dogs. My question is, does anyone know if dogs are ever any good at mousing, or at least at scaring mice away?

Song hunt So, tonight, uniedntified, on the radio, there was an apparently new song, in a very alt.country vein but heavily influenced by a jangly R.E.M. sound, with a long fiddle solo in the break, and a refrain centering on the word "Telepathy." Any ID help?

Orson Welles argues the case of Isaac Woodard,
the WWII veteran who on February 13, 1946, three hours after having been honorably discharged from the U.S. Army, was assaulted, savagely beaten and blinded for life by a Georgia cop
. His only crime, not having addressed the harassing officer as "sir". Welles was the first to bring the case to the attention of the American public, severely damaging his radio show's ratings and its ad revenues in the process; after Welles, Woody Guthrie
and eventually -- if unsuccessfully, because Woodard's attacker was tried and quickly acquitted by a Georgia jury of, literally, his peers -- President Truman would try to help Woodard's case. Via Wellesnet
