■ An Oregon couple face charges for allegedly participating in a sex act during a flight to Las Vegas. Good thing they weren’t using a cellphone or holding a 4-ounce bottle of shampoo or they’d really be in trouble.

■ Taco Bell is expanding test marketing of its waffle taco ­▶, which includes scrambled eggs and sausage inside a folded waffle with a side of syrup. Can be part of a nutritious breakfast with the addition of, you know, actual food.
