SIGNS OF THE TIMES -- This Spring, New Yorkers will notice that their traffic signs, notoriously wordy and complex, will be more easily read as 6300 of them are replaced by new ones that can no longer exceed 140 characters. They'll be overjoyed. At last, parking signs they can Tweet.
I-CAUGHT -- A clepto-challenged thief in West Jordan, Utah who snatched an IPad left in an unlocked car couldn't resist using it to take some photos of himself, not realizing that they were automatically stored on the owner's ICloud. And if that weren't sufficiently stupido, he clicked on the "Insta-Mugshot" app.
NO PENALTY -- A Moorhead Minnesota judge ruled that an employee may keep a $7000 oval-cut diamond ring he found in the parking lot of a Little Caesar's Pizza Restaurant last October. Officials theorize it may have been dropped by Kobe Bryant while in town to play the Timberwolves and he's now too embarrassed to come forward.
WAKE UP CALL -- Police in Philadelphia are investigating a complaint filed by a stripper that she was sexually assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel by two men while Brooklyn Nets forward Andrey Blatche looked on and did nothing. While no charges have been forthcoming, the men face charges of assault and impersonating Secret Service Agents.
