Here are a few things in news, sports, entertainment and pop culture that we’ve been talking about lately.
■ A security breach compromises customer data at Las Vegas-based online retailer Zappos. Certainly explains that rush on Bruno Magli pumps by Zappos’ over-40 male demographic.
■ Jay-Z composes a song for his new baby girl. And, for once, uses the B-word to refer to something else entirely.
■ A recently discovered golden-butted horsefly in Australia is named in honor of Beyonce. Elsewhere, a family of colorful but dumb locusts recently discovered in Southern California is dubbed “Locusta Kardashianis.”
■ A computer error causes a New York City hospital to bill a man $44.8 million for a pneumonia-related stay. It was really for just $40 million (plus the co-pay, of course).
