a Bad Week for ties, as the Board of Aldermen of South Padre Island in the Gulf of Mexico passed a resolution making it illegal to wear them. The announcement stated: "The very appearance of a tie causes a discordant note for our visitors, sometimes causing serious regression back to their humdrum and ordinary business lives." The mayor's own tie was cut off after the proclamation was ratified.
a Perilous Week for a cat, in East Corinth, Maine, which was trapped in thunderstorms for three days on a utility pole, then struck by a 7,500 volt power line. The cat plummeted to the ground in flames, where it was found, meowing loudly but apparently uninjured apart from a singed tail, by emergency crews. The cat has now been adopted by a firefighter and named "Sparky".
