Carlina White, a missing infant who was abducted from a NYC hospital 23 years ago, has been reunited with her family, but the case against her suspected kidnapper is just beginning.
Ann Pettway, a North Carolina woman, contacted a Bridgeport, Connecticut police officer via Facebook to turn herself in. She surrendered Sunday morning to the FBI and Bridgeport, Conn., police on a warrant from North Carolina, where she’s on probation because of a conviction for attempted embezzlement.
She turned herself in days after a widely publicized reunion between the child she raised, now an adult, and her biological mother.

There are just some people that I would never imagine meeting at ANY function that would allow me entrance… and one of them is Bono!
I ran up on Bono and a guy that looked like his bandmate, Larry Mullin, as they were perusing the artwork at “The Next Cool Thing” event this weekend and I immediately lost all my focus. I was there supporting my BFF Interior Decorator Extraordinaire DanaT and I was no longer “ATLien” the blogger… I was Michelle the fan!!! This may be an “urban” site, but I looooves me some U2! *swoon*
If I was thinking like a blogger, I woulda pulled out the flip cam I keep in my purse for cases like this, but that wasn’t even on my mind. I was too busy telling Bono how much I admired him and all he’s done for the world and blushing because he said I was pretty. Shoot… if it wasn’t for my friend Pierre, I wouldn’t have even thought to take a picture. I was just happy to meet him.
[Sidebar: I still remember how buttery soft Bono’s black leather jacket was against my skin… and he smelled like apples! yummm! Oh wait. Maybe it was those sour apple martini’s I was smelling.]
Needless to say, this man has touched millions. Not only with is music, but with his humanitarian efforts across the globe. Bono has every right to throw Diva-tude, but he didn’t at all. He was so cool that I was almost shocked. So I do this post to thank Bono for being so gracious during my moment of groupie-ism.
I am so honored to have exchanged a few words with such an icon and will forever be touched.

The two lovebirds posed for the above photo on their wedding day, which was taken alongside the minister who officiated the ceremony, after they tied the knot inside Shannon’s L.A. home on November 22, 2010.
Mo wore an ivory colored Grecian style Donna Karan dress with Christian Louboutin heels as she said “I do” to her Prince Charming.
This is a very special time in my life. I am blessed to have married the man that God sent me, he’s loving, compassionate, strong and supportive of my children, family and career.
I look forward to our lives together. ~ Monica
Word is… the ceremony was only attended by two witnesses but Mo is planning a big ceremony for family and friends which will be held in July.

It’s no secret that this has been a rough presidency for Barack Obama and he has the gray hair to prove it. Recent before-and-after photos published by outlets including England’s Daily Mail online, Gawker and a number of print tabloids apparently illustrate a recent pronounced darkening of the president’s coif.
Many have cataloged the before-and-after appearances of presidents past, and Obama and his staff have readily admitted he’s no different.
“Change is hard,” Obama told the Urban League last summer. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed. That’s why I’ve got all this gray hair.”
Well… not anymore!
