HOW DO YOU KFC?

From KFC online ad


"You've got to be freaking kidding me!" That's the standard response I got interviewing folks outside a KFC on W. 50th Street about the fast-food chain's latest, limited menu item. A chicken corsage. Suitable for prom night. The idea being, you don't have to stop on the way home from the prom for a bite to eat if you get hungry.

"Ewwww," said many of the women I talked to (they were referring to the corsage not to me, I presume!). But one woman said, she'd be down for it. If it was from Church's Chicken!

86-YEAR-OLD MAN SHOOTS DAUGHTER & DOG BEFORE BEING SHOT BY COPS



What made him snap? That's what cops are trying to figure out. An 86-year-old man, calling 911 to report he'd shot his daughter and his dog. When cops arrived at the house in Astoria, Queens, he met them at the door with a gun and refused to drop it. They opened fire, mortally wounding him. Inside, his 65-year-old daughter was shot as was the dog. She was rushed to a hospital where she later died. The dog taken to an animal hospital for emergency treatment.

WHAT A GREAT GROUP OF INDUCTEES


Previous years when I've covered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony there's been controversy over who got in and who didn't. Not this year at the Barclay's Center. No complaints from anyone I interviewed about Nirvana, Kiss, the E Street Band, Linda Ronstadt and the singer formerly known as  Cat Stevens getting in. In fact, the only controversy I encountered is about whose fans came out in bigger numbers. Those supporting Kiss or those supporting Nirvana.

NEIGHBORHOOD EVACUATED DUE TO PIPE BOMBS



When cops came to this Brighton Beach house to mediate a domestic dispute, they found not only guns, but makeshift pipe bombs in the house. They evacuated not just this house, but others on the block as well. And arrested the husband, an FDNY medic. Neighbors are shocked. They say they used to see the couple laughing, smiling and holding hands. And said they were helpful to the kids in the neighborhood.
