OK, so the headline isn't as juicy as "Man Bites Dog!" but you work with the material you have. In Nebraska, pit bulls attacked again. Except this time, the pit bulls are the heroes.

OMAHA, Neb. -- A couple of pit bulls are being hailed as canine heroes.

The breed may have a mean reputation, but Angie Pecoraro is happy the pit bulls were next door. She was attacked in her Omaha yard this week by a red chow. The dog had knocked her down and was biting her repeatedly. That's when the neighbor's pit bulls came to the rescue.

They jumped a fence and fought off the chow. The humane society has impounded the attacking dog. Pecoraro was treated and released from a local hospital.
The chow, it turned out, was a Red China communist spy.

In related news, Brittney Spears is pregnant. This wasn't a shock. She has been looking a little more motherly lately. Also, as she explained earlier this year on her website:
"I've had a career since I was 16, have traveled around the world and back, and even kissed Madonna! The only thing I haven't done so far is experience the closest thing to God, and that's having a baby. I can't wait!" she wrote.
I am shocked. I had always assumed that kissing Madonna was to "experience the closest thing to God."
