When Woody Guthrie died in 1967, he left behind an enormous cache of unpublished lyrics and prose, which has resulted in an exceptionally rich posthumous career. Bob Dylan, who should know, has written of Guthrie: "He was so poetic and tough and rhythmic. There was so much intensity, and his voice was like a stiletto." Though I probably shouldn't admit it, I rarely listen to Woody Guthrie for pleasure.

The maker of Four Loko has agreed to make the alcohol content of its big cans a lot easier to figure out.
Soon the alcohol inside will be expressed in the equivalent number of regular beers. The equation: A 23 1/2 ounce cans of Four Loko = 4 1/2 beers.
The new labels, plus a resealable opening so the alcohol-laced drink doesn't have to be consumed in one sitting, came as the Federal Trade Commission alleged that Phusion Projects had understated the amount of alcohol in some of its products.

Some 2,000 rabbits have "overrun" the Canadian town of Canmore, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The bunnies are believed to be the progeny of pets — and their number has doubled in the past four years, according to Canada's CTV.
"There's often about eight on our lawn," one Canmore resident tells CTV. "They're everywhere."
But the same woman also added, "We think they're cute."

If Kevin Phillips had his way, he’d be flying to work today. But Phillips has to wait until his self-built kit helicopter can take the air. He’s waiting for an evaluation from the Federal Aviation Administration before he can train with the aircraft and prove he can safely handle it. It took him five years to complete the aircraft from a kit.
