Babylonia Aivaz is among a dozen or so community activists who’ve been trying to save the 107-year-old warehouse from being torn down to make way for luxury condominiums. She said she plans to enter into a “gay marriage” with the building. Aivaz said, “Yes, I’m in love with a 107-year-old building. If corporations can have the same rights as people, so can buildings.”

Finger biter – Police in Windsor,Ontario, said they are searching for a woman who allegedly bit another woman during a road rage-fueled argument.

Not very neighborly – In a strange case of “trading places,” a Florida woman ended up behind bars after deciding to burglarize a neighbor’s empty house. Shellie Leonard broke into the unidentified man’s home and stole a knife, some CDs and the curtains off the windows. But when she came back for a second armload of merchandise, the home’s owner caught her in the act and called cops. She was charged with two counts of burglary.  The twist is that the owner himself was coming home from a stint in the slammer.
