Yesterday, the Sacramento Bee reported that legendary actress/singer Lena Horne died at the age of 92, citing an obituary in The New York Times.

The only problem? She died on May 9 ... 2010.

Horne

It's unclear how the Bee blew this, but Lena Horne began trending nationally and countless news outlets picked up the story (which they have since taken down).

On Twitter, thousands of users mourned, tweeting condolences as if it just happened.

“Just learned Lena Horne passed away. Saddened. A legend. A true star,” one wrote.

“Crying so hard. I didn’t know that her death would affect me like this!” said another.

Michelle Knight, one of the three Cleveland kidnapping victims found alive earlier this week, has reportedly shunned her family following her rescue.

M Knight

Knight had been missing for 11 years when she was found in a dungeon-like Cleveland house with Amanda Berry, 27, and Gina DeJesus, 23.

Knight had been in the house the longest and suffered brutal injuries at the hands of her captor, Ariel Castro, who is charged with rape and kidnapping.

But while the two other freed captives have returned home to cheering crowds and yards full of balloons, Knight did not enjoy a similar scenario.

A Florida restaurant that specializes in unique Mexican recipes has removed a controversial item from its menu.

Taco Fusion, which opened three months ago in Tampa, has been doing solid business due to its unique fare, but customers apparently drew the line at a lion taco.

Following complaints that the meat of an endangered species should not be for sale - for $35, no less! - manager Brad Barnett finally caved to public pressure and yanked the dish.

Gun violence has actually plunged in the U.S. since its peak in the middle of the 1990s, according to two new studies of government data.

At the same time, a majority of Americans believe it is on the rise.

Gunz

Gun crime statistics are comprised of murders, assaults, robberies and other crimes, and the Pew Research Center found that they're down overall.

In less than two decades, the gun murder rate has been nearly cut in half, their research suggested, while other gun crimes fell even more sharply.

This parallels a broader drop in violent crimes committed with or without guns, which peaked during the 1990s and has fallen sharply since then.

Ariel Castro has been charged with rape and kidnapping after three women missing for about a decade were found alive at his home on Monday.

Castro appeared in court Thursday morning, handcuffed. He didn't speak and looked down the entire time. Bond was set at $2 million on each case.

Neighbor Charles Ramsey heard cries for help and aided their escape this week, leading to the stunning rescue of the girls who vanished from 2002-04.

The women - Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight - were found alive after a decade in captivity leading lonely, dark lives in a dingy home.

They were routinely raped and allowed outside only a handful of times in disguises while walking to a garage steps away, investigators believe.

Fans of TV who love Twitter but hate spoilers, meet Jennie Lamere.

The 17-year-old entered the TVnext Hack event in Boston and not only won her category, "Best Use of Sync-To-Broadcast," but also won Best In Show.

Her creation? Twivo, a TV spoiler blocker made for Twitter.

An extension of Google Chrome, Twivo lets users type in key words they would like to block and for how long. Take the example of Game of Thrones spoilers.

If you missed the episode but have it on DVR and still want to be on Twitter, enter keyword "Game of Thrones" and you won't see any tweets about it!

So for The Bachelorette spoilers, you'd have to start like two months before the premiere, since Reality Steve starts posting them then. Just FYI.

The above headline pretty much speaks for itself, but when a bear and a monkey race on bicycles (only in China), what's the worst that could happen?

We leave it up to you to decide ... if you want to sit through it:

Spoiler alert: The animals bikes' collide during the performance at Shanghai's Wild Animal Park. It does not appear like either animal finished the race.

It also does not look like the monkey survives the subsequent mauling by the bear, making for a WTH viral video moment if ever there were one.

In other news, it's almost lunchtime?

In one of the biggest news stories of the year, Amanda Berry was rescued this week in Cleveland, Ohio, 10 YEARS after she vanished on her way to work.

Now 27, she and two other women - Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus, also missing since 2002-04 but abducted in separate incidents - were found alive and together.

They were found after Amanda Berry's cries for help caught the attention of a neighbor, Charles Ramsey, who helped her escape the home of Ariel Castro.

These are the 911 calls placed by Berry and Ramsey:

The 911 call made by Amanda Berry, interestingly, is under review after possible procedural errors by the dispatcher, according to public safety officials.

A cellphone video of a high school student in Duncanville, Tex., reprimanding his teacher for her allegedly poor teaching methods has gone viral.

In an impassioned, impromptu speech, the student criticizes his teacher for "handing out a frickin' packet" instead of "face-to-face" lessons.

"You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his frickin' heart. Can't expect a kid to change if all you do is just tell him," he says.

"I'm telling you what you need to do. You want kids to come into class, to get excited for this? You gotta come in here, you gotta make them excited."
