Very Disturbing Assault Video, Zimmerman Trial News, a Spinning Statue, & Top Potential Paula Deen Book Titles

There was a lot of behind-the-scenes discussion about this next video on the DGS blog. It's very brutal and disturbing, and initially I wasn't in favor of posting it here.
We are going to bring it up on today's show however, and Fox News (and other outlets) are airing the video on TV, so we decided to post it here with a VERY STRONG WARNING. This is an intense, harsh video. We're posting it because this guy is still out there and deserves to be apprehended by authorities.
This is a Nanny Cam video that shows a man (who broke down the back door while a mother was making breakfast) repeatedly striking the woman all as her young daughter sits cowering on the couch.
"I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would too, and I was afraid she would get hurt," she told News 12 in New Jersey. "I took it. I didn't cry the entire time." The outlet says she was kicked a total of 16 times. Her plan worked: the man never touched the young girl or the 1-year-old little boy upstairs.
The GEORGE ZIMMERMAN trial started yesterday. He's the neighborhood watch guy who admits to shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida last year, but says it was in self-defense.
Zimmerman's lawyer is a guy named Don West, and for whatever reason, he decided to tell a bad KNOCK-KNOCK joke during his opening statement.
First he told the jury it was coming, saying that, quote, "Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying." (???)
He apologized later, after a recess . . . but even that was awkward, and just made it worse.
The publisher of a new Paula Deen cookbook may cancel the deal. However, a new book about Paula herself is rumored to be in the works. Here are the Top Potential Paula Deen Book Titles.

Time-lapse footage from the Manchester Museum in England has some people freaked out, because it shows a 4,000-year-old Egyptian statue SPINNING inside its glass case . . . seemingly on its own.
According to one physicist, it's probably the result of something called "differential friction." Or in other words, the statue is turning little by little because of tiny vibrations from people walking around, or from street traffic.
But one of the museum's experts isn't buying it, and seems to think there might be a more supernatural explanation.
Quote, "In Ancient Egypt, they believed that if [a] mummy is destroyed, then the statuette can act as an alternative vessel for the spirit."
Although, from watching the video, it does seem to only move when there's traffic outside or people walking around.
