Earlier today, several cable news sources initially reported that the suspect behind today's school shooting in Connecticut was a 24-year-old man named Ryan Lanza, but the shooter has been since identified as Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old younger brother of Ryan who lives in Hoboken, NJ. Somewhat inevitably, the earlier news reports led to an outpour of angry messages and death threats on the Facebook profile page of the gunman's brother Ryan, who had to repeatedly explain that he had nothing to do with the incident.

A Catholic church in Germany has decided to allow the parents of Jens Pascal, a nine year old boy who died from a brain tumor, to decorate the tomb with the logo of his favorite football club Borussia Dortmund, thus fulfilling the boy's deathbed wish before he passed away earlier in May. When the church initially denied the request on the grounds that non-Christian elements are not allowed on the gravestone, the story was quickly picked up by the German news media and caused a stir among soccer fans on Facebook, where nearly 150,000 people flocked to the group "The Last Wish of Jens Pascal" and protested the church's denial. Eventually on Monday, the church released a statement saying that a soccer ball and the club's logo will be placed on the ground (though not on the top of the gravestone).
