 MISSILE MYSTERY: On Monday night, a KCBS helicopter captured a gorgeous shot of a missile taking off into the golden sunset off the coast of Los Angeles. But it's something of a mystery as to who launched the missile, according to CBS News: "A Navy spokesperson told KFMB-TV San Diego it wasn't their missile. He said there was no Navy activity reported in the area Monday evening. On Friday night, Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California, launched a Delta II rocket, carrying an Italian satellite into orbit, but a sergeant at the base told KFMB there had been no launches since then." Launches along the coast are fairly common, and some have speculated it was a private rocket launch. Stay tuned.

Denny's promises meals to be delivered to your table within 8 minutes of ordering. For those on the go, meals and drip coffee can be ordered for takeout. Coffee costs $1.85." (Fast Food Maven).
