Jen Cohan had spent all morning primping her kids for a Christmas card photo shoot. The only thing missing was Elke, the family rat terrier. Elke was 16 and had been ill for months. Before she started looking, Jen knew: Elke was dead. "What do you do when your chickens die?" she texted her friend, an urban farmer. "Beth Beverly," he replied. Beverly is a Philadelphia taxidermist who specializes in a more creative type of mount. "Elke might end up a hat or a Christmas tree topper," Jen's friend warned, but Jen had worked in fashion and needed little convincing.

A Beverly city councilman, often in the spotlight in the riverfront community's rough-and-tumble political scene, lost his home and possibly the family cat when his duplex went up in flames Monday night. Luis Crespo said his family returned home from shopping shortly after 6:30, as the blaze was consuming their home. Neighbors reported loud popping sounds until the two-alarm fire was brought under control two hours later. "I am grateful my family is OK, and I want to thank the hundreds of people that offered their support," Crespo said Tuesday afternoon as he and a few friends began boarding up the home on Broad Street, a few blocks from Beverly National Cemetery.

The trend inspired enough Twitter fashion commentary that producer Greg Berlanti ("Political Animals") said after a session on his new CW superhero series "Arrow" that he'd made a point of wearing socks because he'd seen so many tweets about it. > Russell Brand without shoes.
