British Tab Mistakes Gutterpunks For Rodents

You can now officially stop going about your daily business with steely determination in the face of terror, and return to going about it with quiet desperation:

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday called off a high alert for the city's subway system after the attack date cited in a federal warning passed without incident.

What a relief. And, conveniently, all my weekend fear made me forget who Freddy Ferrer is.

But wait! The terror is NOT OVER YET:

SQUIRRELS are getting hooked on crack cocaine hidden by addicts in gardens.They are digging up the stashes and eating the mega-addictive drug, which comes in small chunks.

Crack squirrels are a recognised problem in America. They are common in parks used by addicts in New York and Washington DC.

They have been known to attack park visitors in their search for a fix.

Oddly, LES Jewels was unavailable for comment.
