Hamming it up – An entrepreneur in France is giving humans a chance to experience life  as a hamster!  French ‘scenographer’ Yann Falquerho runs ‘Villa Hamster’, a hotel that’s been renovated for the human-hamster hybrid, with cages for rooms, haystacks instead of beds, and human-sized running wheels. Guests eat organic hamster grains served in little containers; sip water on all-fours; and have the option of wearing little hamster hoodies. The one concession to their humanity is a coffee machine in each cage.

 Wrong place at the wrong time…or the right time – A Traverse City police detective went to a local gas station to show clerks a surveillance video image of someone accused of stealing a woman’s credit card a week before. As luck would have it the man Detective Kevin Gay was looking for just happened to be in that store at that very moment buying a pack of cigarettes!  The man, 51, was arrested and faces charges of unlawful use of a credit card.
