SeaWorld divers: Scott Powers at the Orlando Sentinel this weekend had an interesting story about "a life-and-death emergency that would nearly kill one diver and lead to the resignations of two others."Tokyo power failure: A report from Japan said that a power failure Sunday at Tokyo Disneyland shut down 25 rides at the park. Most rides soon came back up. No one was injured and lots of comps were issued.Dummy at Disney: Ever wonder if they ever find anything at those security check-point tables outside Disney theme parks? Beside contraband sandwiches and soft drinks? Well, today, they did. Disney security busted a 63-year-old woman rolling with a loaded .32-caliber semi-automatic handgun... plus a pair of scissors and a locked blade knife.
Disney called the Orange County Sheriff's Office, which took the gun and arrested the woman, who claimed that she forgot she was packing when she left for the park.
