Two 10-year-olds caught selling grandparents' pot at Colorado school
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Two 10-year-old boys in Colorado were caught selling and swapping marijuana that they pilfered from their grandparents' supplies of legally purchased pot in separate incidents at the same school, a district official said on Wednesday. John Gates, director of safety and security for Weld County School District 6, said a fourth-grade boy at Monfort Elementary in Greeley brought a small amount of marijuana to school on Monday and sold it to three other classmates. That boy nibbled on the edible, but suffered no ill-effects, Gates said, adding that another student observed the incident and reported it to school authorities. Voters in Colorado approved the possession and use of small amounts of cannabis by adults for recreational purposes in 2012, and the first state-licensed retail pot stores opened in the state in January.

Sriracha hot sauce makers head for next showdown in California

Bottles of Sriracha hot chili sauce, made by Huy Fong Foods, are seen on a supermarket shelf in San GabrielBy Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Southern California makers of the popular Sriracha brand of hot sauce faced another potential showdown on Wednesday with the city of Irwindale over a peppery smell emitted from the company's chili-processing factory in town. The city council was expected to vote on a resolution formally declaring the factory a public nuisance unless the sides reach an agreement to resolve resident complaints of tear-inducing fumes from the plant. City officials and attorneys for Huy Fong Foods were in talks this week seeking to reach a settlement ahead of Wednesday night's council meeting, said Laura Snyder, an administrator in the city manager's office. Huy Fong officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Tennessee man breaks into civil rights museum, then falls asleep

A man looks at the Lorraine Motel, which is now a part of the National Civil Rights Museum, where Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in MemphisA Tennessee man looking for a place to sleep found a bed at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where the Rev. Martin Luther King was shot and killed in 1968. But the motel is now part of the National Civil Rights Museum, and Dexter Anderson, 33, was arrested as he slept Tuesday night in room 308 after a security officer called police to report a break in. Rooms 306 and 308 of the Lorraine Motel were booked by King's group at the time of his assassination, and have since been preserved behind glass as permanent exhibits in the museum, which traces the movement from slavery through the late 20th century. Anderson, of Memphis, was charged with vandalism and criminal trespass, Memphis police Sergeant Alyssa Macon-Moore said.

Excerpt from Nineteen Seventy Something
Rebecca Cavander pressed her body close to mine as I slept, her finger tracing an invisible line across my chest then moving slowly to my abdomen, pausing briefly then moving even lower. Her moist lips pressed against mine and as my mind began to rouse from a deep sleep, I became aware of her breath against my neck. Her lips moved closer to my ear and she whispered....
BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...BEEP!
My body abruptly sat upright in the bed, my eyes bulging. "Ah, damn! Will I never finish that dream!"
