  • Pink roses for a white Valentine's Day

>> The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or the "psychiatrist's bible," is going through substantial changes including replacing "mental retardation" with "intellectual disability" and creating an addictions category that includes gambling but leaves out sex. Suck on that, Tiger Woods. (ABC News)

>> Iranian police have arrested opposition supporters planning demonstrations for the Islamic Revolution anniversary tomorrow. Public protests were essentially unheard of until President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was re-elected last year. What the Iranian people need right now is a good protest song. (BBC News)

>> In Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has temporarily taken leadership while ailing President Umaru Yar'Adua is in the hospital. Jonathan has already exerted control by removing the justice minister. Good luck, Jonathan. (BBC News)

>> A study finds that drinking light-colored beer is effective in preventing osteoporosis. So drink lots of beer for the sake of your bones and screw your liver. (NY Daily News)

>> And finally: Dutch authorities reported today that a shipment of cocaine was found hidden among 20,000 roses from Latin America at an Amsterdam airport. Way to ruin Valentine's Day, Dutch police. (Reuters)
