Enjoy Coke: In Mexico City, Mexican soldiers opened up the cargo hold of a commercial flight from Venezuela and found 128 black suitcases marked "private." But they weren't feeling polite: in the cases they found 5.5 tons of cocaine, worth $100 million or more. Wow, those were some big suitcases.

Wacko crash in Encino: Some guy was driving a Crown Victoria all crazy down Ventura Boulevard, being pursued by police. He smashed into a BMW, disabling both vehicles, then jumped out of the car and ran off (the police nabbed him).
