VALOR FROM AFAR -- Some hardened combat veterans are not pleased with the Pentagon's new drone pilot medal that ranks above those earned in hand-to-hand combat. Hold on there, Sarge. These Air Force drone jockies face plenty of danger -- between shifts, they have to walk around Colorado unarmed.
WALK A MILE -- The U.S. State Department has issued warnings that Arab-Spring-torn Egypt is the most dangerous tourist destination in the Middle East. Visitors to Cairo are warned to be vigilant against muggers and pickpockets. Drive-by camel shootings can occur with virtually no warning -- camels have no hoofs.
TAKES A BEATING -- North Korea now claims they have developed nuclear technology that will allow them to hide a nuclear device, fully armed, in an ordinary suitcase. And Samsonite thought they were testing their luggage when they had gorillas toss them around.
RAG WRAPS -- Once the bible of Hollywood show biz, the 108-year old daily Variety will no longer publish a print version. Potential starlets are beside themselves -- if they can't see who's reading Variety in Cantor's and Nate 'n' Al's, how will they know who to sleep with?
