• And the disaster porn continues: More details have emerged about Jaycee Dugard's abduction and life in captivity. CBS also has a "special section" devoted to Jaycee, and a video of Dr. Phil giving his "expert" opinions. •

• Connecticut police are searching for Annie Le, a 24-year-old Yale University graduate student who disappeared from outside the school of medicine building on Tuesday. Her purse and cellphone were found inside her office. • And on a campus across the country, students at USC are being warned about two men in a van, who have been stalking female students, and offering them "free rides." • Researchers have found that there are vast fluctuations in the male-to-female ratio for the Hypolimnas bolina, a species of tropic butterfly. The population has recently become female-heavy due to a male killing bacteria. • Melanie Oudin is now receiving media attention for yet another reason: her parents are divorcing. And apparently her mother had an affair with her coach. The "Juicy scandal" is explored in further detail here. • Two parents from Winnipeg have been charged with running a brothel out of their house while their 11-year-old daughter was present. A client reportedly overheard the mother telling her child "that it is OK for women to have sex for money, that it is normal, and talking about another woman giving her husband oral sex." • An unidentified 29-year-old woman fell to her death at an old building at the University of Toronto. She was apparently hunting for ghosts. • A transgender choirmaster for a Catholic church in Italy was fired recently, and the cathedral gave no explanation as to why Luana Ricci was canned.

And ASA claims they haven't heard from the IAAF at all. To further complicate things, an anonymous source "closely involved" with Caster Semenya's gender testing says she has internal testes and no womb or ovaries. The IAAF may disqualify her from future competitions and even strip her of her medal, says the source. •
