STOPPING TRAFFIC: A 500-pound hog caused traffic headaches in Victorville when it got loose and started roaming the streets. According to KTLA:

San Bernardino county sheriff's deputies were called to "D" street about 12:30 a.m. by a tow truck driver who reported an uncooperative hog blocking lanes. The driver said he almost hit the huge swine. Deputies found the hog on the side of the road and managed to coax the porker into a horse trailer some 3 hours later.

Linking LAOCTOMOM, SAVED? Steven Hirsch, executive of adult production company Vivid Entertainment, has offered Nadya "Octomom" Suleman an on-camera gig and two non-performing jobs, all of which she has refused. Hirsh's company is now negotiating with Suleman's landlord, Amer Haddadin, to purchase her residence, where she has been given an eviction notice. "If we are successful, we would not threaten or bully Nadya to perform in our films in exchange for saving her from foreclosure," Hirsch says. (Pasadena Star-News)
