Today in general weirdness

Actor Shia LaBeouf was handcuffed and escorted out of a Broadway performance of "Cabaret," Variety reports (3,204 shares) "No, he didn't claim he wrote it," Variety's David S. Cohen helpfully added.

In other strangeness, alien abductees are over the moon to find a close-encounter group, the Wall Street Journal tells us (146 shares). WSJ's Sam Schechner pinpointed the part that we all especially liked: "Might aliens read the WSJ? 'Probably not,' says expert alien detector in a great ahed by @DJMatthewDalton." NYT's Dionne Searcey had the best explanation as to why not, though: "Paywall!" We fear your pain, otherworldly beings.
