Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
A Florida woman is breathing easier after discovering that a mass doctors discovered in her lung may be a fruit pit she inhaled nearly 30 years ago. Blanca Riveron, who suffered from a nagging cough for 28 years, was set to undergo surgery after a scan at the doctor's office detected a dark mass on her lung that physicians feared might be cancer. But before surgery she coughed up the seed that had apparently been lodged in her lung since 1984. With the seed gone, she no longer suffers from coughing fits.

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!
A Bremerton, Washington burglar who was chased off by a gun-wielding homeowner called later in the day to offer a trade for items he left behind. The homeowner had awakened to the sound of a burglar in the house and chased him off with a gun. Police said the burglar called the homeowner and offered to trade some of the items he had taken from the home for a bag he had left behind, which contained papers bearing his name. The homeowners agreed and the burglar arrived at the home to find police waiting for him.
