Rolling Stones and Falling CoconutsNews all over the world this week about Keith Richards falling out of a coconut palm tree.

The Mystery of the 12 Coconuts"Is the Canal Being Used for Strange Rituals?" a Bucks Free Press headline asks, in a UK story about a canal near the Thames river that was being cleaned up by volunteers when they came across "12 coconuts, 12 nails, and a package full of lentils."
