A dog named Titan lived up to his name Thursday when he earned the title world's tallest dog. It was one of more than 30 records announced or set on Nov. 12 - the official Guinness World Record Day - but the only animal to be honored.
Someone called the South Carolina Board of Funeral Service, and the coroner and an investigator with the agency received the widow's permission to dig up the grave. After years of whispers, the gruesome story appeared to be all too true.
Organizers of "Day Without a Gay" - scheduled to coincide with International Human Rights Day and modeled after similar work stoppages by Latino immigrants - also are encouraging people to perform volunteer work and refrain from spending money.
