CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- An 18-year-old Chicago man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping two young children to perform a demonic ritual intended to get back his former girlfriend, authorities said.
David Rodriguez was being held on $500,000 bond. Prosecutors said he and a 15-year-old companion snatched the children Friday outside a South Side library and planned to carve a pentagram in the girl's chest.
Rodriguez apparently needed only the girl, so he released her 8-year-old brother, who told people on the street about the kidnapping, Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Tracy Senica said.
Police found the girl unharmed at Rodriguez's home, and they arrested Rodriguez when he returned with candles and incense.
Rodriguez was charged with two counts of aggravated kidnapping, police spokesman John Mirabelli said.
His grandfather, Julian Rodriguez, called the accusations "ridiculous." He said his grandson was a "good kid."
What the hell are they teaching these morons in school nowadays? Everyone fucking knows that if you want to get your girlfriend back you need a pair of german shepards to sacrifice. You only need to carve a pentagram in a girl's chest if you want Satan to tell you next week's powerball numbers.
Girl with peanut allergy dies after kiss

SAGUENAY, Quebec (AP) -- A 15-year-old girl with a peanut allergy died after kissing her boyfriend, who had just eaten a peanut butter snack, hospital officials said Monday.
Christina Desforges died in a Quebec hospital Wednesday after doctors were unable to treat her allergic reaction to the kiss the previous weekend.
Desforges, who lived in Saguenay, about 155 miles north of Quebec City, was almost immediately given a shot of Adrenaline, a standard tool for treating the anaphylactic shock brought on by a peanut allergy, officials said.
Alrighty, yes, right off the bat it's a shame that she died. It's a tragedy and I'm sure that her friends and family are grief stricken and we're all sorry for their loss. On the otherhand, this is just freaking cool as hell. A literal kiss of death, and not from some sort of james bond'ian contact poison on the lips of some assasin for hire, but due to what was probaly something like a packet of crackers with peanut butter. It certainly beats sharks with frickin' laser beams on their heads. I'm sure they'll be saving for years to come, if only she had just given him a peck on the cheek instead of doing the tongue fandango.
Now, what are the chances that he planned this? I mean, she must've been really really allergic to peanuts. Maybe he was trying to get her out of the way so he could make a move on the head cheerleader. A couple of reeses pieces and poof, the way is cleared for romeo to go out and get 'comforted' by all the girls at the school on his loss.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) -- He works at a Wendy's, and his name is Ronald MacDonald -- but now he may be known as the Hamburglar.
Two workers at a Wendy's in Manchester, New Hampshire, have been charged with taking money from the safe. One of the suspects is Ronald MacDonald.
Police say the restaurant's manager called them early Monday morning and said he saw MacDonald and the other man taking cash out of the restaurant's safe.
Man, when it rains it pours. I love days like this where nutty news stories abound. It's like a snarky form of christmas. First, you hafta feel sorta sorry for anyone who's actually named Ronald McDonald. I mean, WTF were his parents thinking? I'm not sure that a life of crime was his only way to go but I wouldn't be surprised at all if he had problems of some sort. It's like naming your kid Richard Les (had a friend with a TA in college with this one) or, and this is sorta excusable since it is a language barrier thing, Fat Ho (friend worked with someone with this name). Poor Ronald though. What must grimace think?
