Beyonce has been running afoul of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals all year, at least. First there was her fur coat at the presidential inauguration.

Wojciech Inglot, a Polish chemist and cosmetics company executive who developed a porous nail polish that found favor among Muslim women who could wear it for daily prayers since it didn't prevent water from reaching their nails during rites of required hand-washing, has died at age 57 of reported internal hemorrhaging.  [New York Times]
