The highs and lows... of news.

High: the number of City Council voters in favor of renaming the Queensboro Bridge after former New York mayor Ed Koch. Yesterday’s 38 to 12 vote determined that the bridge’s name will change next month to the “Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge.”

Low: the level of light as allied forces began the most intense night of bombing in Libya thus far. Explosions lasted until dawn today. (WSJ)

High: the spirits of miniature horse Midnite, after he received an innovative prosthetic leg fitting procedure. Aw! (BBC)

Low: Westboro Baptist Church’s plans to picket the funeral of Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away very early yesterday morning.(E! Online, NYT)

High: Not the Brooklyn residents in the 50s, who didn’t realize they were neighbors to the native Cannabis sativa plants “tall enough to hang ornaments on for the holidays” growing nearby in vacant lots. In the words of Gob Bluth: come on! (NY Mag)
