Top of the List: Teenage girl shot by Taliban, baseball fever & no more Drew on Dancing
Last Updated: 222 days ago
Here’s what’s making the top of our list for October 10:
TEEN ACTIVIST CRITICAL: A 14-year-old Pakistani girl, targeted by the Taliban over her blog advocating schools for girls, has been shot in the head and is undergoing surgery to save her life. Malala Yousufzai was shot outside her school as classmates tried to protect her. Late Tuesday night, doctors operated to remove the bullet and reduce brain swelling. They are cautiously optimistic about her recovery.
Blogging since she was 11, the teen's "pro-school for girls" posts have put her on the terrorist’s hit list, but Malala said she was never afraid.
“They cannot stop me. I will get my education if it’s at home, school or any place,” she said.
DVR vs. DEBATE: Will McDreamy ever operate again? Can Arizona forgive Callie? You will need to wait until next week to find out. Grey’s Anatomy, Parks and Recreation and Glee are all victims of the VP debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan this Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.
However, election fatigue is now avoidable online. Google Chrome has an anti-Obama/rRomney tool that replaces 2012 campaign ads with faces from the past.
BOYS OF OCTOBER: Baseball fans in Cincinnati and Baltimore aren't fatigued. They have baseball fever. The Reds and Orioles are both in the playoffs, with the Orioles aiming for a 2-1 lead against the Yankees Wednesday night. Who will land in the World Series which kicks off on October 24?
SHOCKING DOUBLE CUT: A lot of fans were left in shock after watching the double elimination on “Dancing with the Stars” Tuesday night. Indy racer Helio Castroneves took his final lap after a caution-flag worthy performance that saw him tripping over partner Chelsie Hightower's dress. But he wasn’t the only who got the boot.
Drew Lachey, from 98 degrees, was never able to turn up the heat. Most surprising, Bristol Palin is still in it.
SUPER HEROES, TACOS AND LEDERHOSEN: These are just some of the most popular costumes dogs are sporting for Halloween. Americans are estimated to spend a record $370 million to dress up their pets for trick or treating this year.
