- Hard-Working Alleged Drug Dealer Sold Heroin From Her ICU Bed
Most of us would probably take a few days off from work if we were in a hospital's intensive care unit, but not Lori Sullenberger! The 38-year-old workaholic was charged today with possessing and intending to sell heroin from her hospital bed. The reason why Sullenberger was in Pennsylvania hospital's ICU has not been disclosed, but according to a hospital spokesperson, staff noticed "an exorbitant amount of foot traffic happening to a patient's room" and that visitors (who often didn't even know Sullenberger's last name) only stayed for a few minutes, rather than the longer stays you might expect from friends and family. Also, as WTAE pointed out, Sullenberg had several cell phones and they rang all the time.
- Led Zeppelin unveil unheard recordings
Rock giants Led Zeppelin on Wednesday unveiled two previously unheard recordings ahead of the re-issue of the band's first three albums in June. The two tracks -- an early version of their classic track "Whole Lotta Love", and a 1970 cover of blues standard "Key to the Highway" -- are among dozens of tracks which will be officially released along with the re-issued albums. Guitarist Jimmy Page, 70, chose the material after painstakingly searching through the tracks, which have been stored in the band's archive for decades. Singer Robert Plant said: "It was a particularly prolific time, where we were learning about each other's capabilities."

- Russian memo to WTO says U.S. sanctions are illegal
By Tom Miles GENEVA (Reuters) - Russia has told the United States that its Ukraine-related sanctions on a Russian bank and Russian citizens are illegal under World Trade Organization rules and must be scrapped. Russian Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said last week that Russia could launch a dispute at the world trade body to challenge U.S. sanctions. The latest warning, set out in a confidential document circulated at the WTO on Wednesday, explained what grounds Russia would have for doing so and made clear that Moscow believes it would win a trade dispute if it launched one. Member countries can claim some exemptions from WTO rules, however, including on grounds of national security.
