Grapefruit in stores throughout Italy was ordered seized after the discovery that some of the fruit had been injected with a deadly poison, possibly as a protest against Israel's policy toward Palestinians. Government officials said tainted grapefruit, possibly imported from Israel, was discovered in a supermarket near Rome last week and that the poison, which has not been identified, was so deadly it killed laboratory guinea pigs instantly.

Stores in Italy pulled two popular brands of Christmas cakes from their shelves Friday because an animal rights group said it injected some of them with rat poison. The news agency ANSA said the Animal Liberation Front sent cakes to its offices in Bologna and Florence on Thursday along with messages saying it was protesting genetic engineering. Both cakes tested positive Friday for enough rat poison to make someone seriously ill, ANSA said.

Nothing a fashion designer wears for an important appearance is randomly selected. As Jeremy Scott stood backstage at his first U.S. show last week, he was dressed in a shawl-collared tuxedo jacket, a mostly unbuttoned ruffled shirt, Miu Miu sandals, a gaudy rhinestoned eagle necklace and, hanging from his shoulder, a tattered, yellow and white striped cotton tote bag from Giorgio of Beverly Hills. On anyone else, the bag would just be another rescued relic from the '80s.

Like a sleepwalker shaken out of a dream, the woman is startled to be asked what she is doing out on a miserable night huddling for cover at the entranceway to a small office building as great rivulets of rainwater stream down around her. "What am I doing here?" Masako Amino, a Japanese businesswoman in her 40s, repeats the question in a daze. The answer is Bae Yong Joon, a South Korean matinee idol famous for driving otherwise sane women to madness.

YOU'RE on vacation, sitting in a small bistro in Burgundy -- or in Alsace, or Provence or the Loire -- and you ask the waiter to recommend a good local wine. He brings a bottle you've never heard of. You taste it. You like it. You like it so much, in fact, that you jot down its name and order it a couple of days later at another bistro. You like it even more. Then, when you come home, you try to find it in your local wine shop. No luck. You call a couple of other wine shops. Still no luck.
