SAVANNAH, Ga. - Watching Paula Deen's cooking show was a weekend ritual for Marilynne Wilson, who says she's furious at the Food Network for dumping the comfort-food queen after she acknowledged using racial slurs in the past. "I was shocked. I thought she'd get a fair trial," Wilson, a nurse from Jacksonville, Fla., said Saturday after stopping to buy souvenirs at the gift shop Deen owns next to her restaurant. "I think the Food Network jumped the gun. " A day after announcing that it is dropping Deen from its roster of celebrity cooks, the cable network was served heaping portions of Southern fried outrage by her fans.

SOME PEOPLE collect stamps, dolls or autographs. Others collect cars, coins or tea cups. And there's a guy in Australia who holds the world record for the biggest and longest-held collection of belly-button lint. Paul Duffy collects mementos of murder. And then he sells them, to whoever pays. In a macabre industry whose merchants can be counted on two hands, Duffy put the Philly area on the "murderabilia" map last month when he began selling killers' artwork, letters and even hair, blood and fingernail clippings from his Coatesville, Chester County, home.

MAYBE "Kai the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker" likes his caramel lattes with an extra shot. The homeless 24-year-old - who was launched to YouTube fame in February after a bizarre television interview he gave about using a hatchet to stop a madman from attacking a woman - was arrested on a murder charge in Philadelphia about 6 p.m. last night after being spotted at a Center City Starbucks. Officials in Union County, N.J., announced earlier yesterday that the hitchhiker was wanted in the bludgeoning death of New Jersey attorney Joseph Galfy Jr., who was found beaten to death Monday morning inside his Clark home.

OXFORD, Miss. - The investigation into poisoned letters mailed to President Obama and others has shifted from an Elvis impersonator to his longtime foe, and authorities must now figure out whether an online feud between them might have grown into something more sinister.

Roger Wicker of Mississippi, and an 80-year-old Lee County, Miss., Justice Court judge, Sadie Holland.
