"Exclusive: Help us examine the lost JFK files."
The Dallas Morning News has
put a chunk of documents found in a vault in Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins' office online in PDF form for the public to review for notable information.
"Given the volume, we haven't been able to review most of the files. That's why we are calling on you. Here's your chance to review never-seen-before materials related to the JFK assassination."
Though I was able to load one of the documents at first, it will likely require registration after a few attempts. [via

CueCats Held Hostage!
A motley mix of left-wingers and computer geeks plans to march on the offices of the Dallas Morning News
this weekend, armed with pet carriers filled with CueCats, in order to protest what they see as pro-GOP slants in the paper's reporting. If the paper doesn't agree to their demands for more left-favorable reporting, the CueCats will be executed! Why CueCats? Because the company that owns the News
has been plugging CueCats like crazy. (second item on the page)

Superfluous and unnecessary.
The :Cue Cat reader
has insinuated itself into the very fabric of the Dallas Morning News
, promising links to "expanded content" and "special promotions" by using this $50 future garage sale item. Is there a real need for bar code scanners in the average household? Or is :Cue Cat merely artificially creating a need for their services?
