- Whole Foods Accidentally Tricked Vegans Into Eating Chicken This Week
Bad news for vegans and chicken-eaters alike: On Thursday, Whole Foods announced it had accidentally switched the labels for its chicken salad and "chick'n" salad in stores in the Northeast.
- High Schooler Suspended for Posting Principal's Mug Shot to Instagram
If you work at a high school as a teacher or principal and have a mug shot floating around somewhere online, it's probably safe to assume it will surface at some point. In keeping with basic rules of the internet, the proper reaction would then be to ignore its surfacing, instead of over-reacting and trying to squash it. Unfortunately for all involved, the principal at Riverdale High School in Clayton County Georgia did the exact opposite earlier this week and suspended a student who posted her mug shot to Instagram.
- Cleveland Home Reminds Us Some Police Don't Rush to Poor Neighborhoods
People from the Cleveland neighborhood in which three kidnapped women were recovered on Monday said that they'd been calling the cops
on the suspected abductor for years, only to have police ignore them. It seemed hard to believe. The Cleveland Police Department itself disputes the claims, saying its records indicate officers had only visited the Seymour Avenue residence twice before this week: Once to respond to a street fight that Ariel Castro, the lead kidnapping suspect, had called in himself, and once to investigate allegations that Castro had briefly abducted a little boy while working as a bus driver in 2004 (when police went to the house to investigate, nobody looked to be home, so they left).

- North Korea Gives Details On Imprisoned American Kenneth Bae's Crime
When North Korea announced it had sentenced
imprisoned American tour operator Kenneth Bae to 15 years hard labor earlier this month, it gave no details about his crime other than he had attempted to "overthrow" the North Korean government. But now North Korea has presented more details about Bae's crime: They say he smuggled anti-government propaganda into the country, and preached the overthrow of regime as part of a Christian missionary-backed plan called "Operation Jericho."

- Canada's Opposition Leader Uses Arrested Development Quote to Burn PM
With the fourth season premiere only days away, it seems Arrested Development is on everyone's lips — even Canada's opposition leader Thomas Mulcair.
- Young People Are Growing Up Together and TIME Cannot Believe It
On Thursday, TIME magazine was shocked once again to discover that humans who were born around the same time are suddenly becoming adults around the same time. In the millennial-centric cover story of the May 20th edition, titled "The ME ME ME Generation" (alternate title: Some Things About Millennials Are Great and Some Things About Them Are Bad But Pretty Much Nothing About Them Is Interesting When Committed to Ink In the Fashion of this Article I Now Realize), author Joel Stein observes that the past few decades' beautiful crop of young people may be "the last large birth grouping that will be easy to generalize about." Of course, this statement disproves his point even as he makes it. (Stay tuned for Post-Millennials: The Un-Generalizeable Generation.)

- The Yids Are Alright: 10 Days of Spiritual Decadence on Birthright

- If the Koch Brothers Want to Pay Too Much for Newspapers, Let Them
Evil corporatist archconservative billionaires the Koch brothers are considering making a bid to buy several big newspapers from the Tribune Co., including the LA Times and the Chicago Tribune. Unions and liberal politicians are justifiably alarmed by this prospect. They're trying to pressure the shareholders not to sell to the Kochs. Here's another, perhaps more productive idea: let the Kochs buy that crap.
