Your hard-to-find-anything-but-election-related-headlines morning news roundup for Thursday October 11th, 2007:

Police want to question a group of rappers that made an unscheduled performance at the talent competition where an 18-year old was shot in the head and died. Their manager insists that they were in their limo by midnight.

A man was arrested after two sex trade workers were held against their will, and police found over $100,000 in crack and a loaded submachine gun in his possession. There's no mention of any feather boas or broad-brimmed hats being confiscated.

Former Toronto Maple Leaf captain Rob Ramage was found guilty on all charges related to a car crash that killed his passenger, leaving many scratching their heads.

Apparently it's not a good idea to give young children cough syrup.
