Weekend update: Other things found this week:
Jim DeFede's Trip with the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich just keeps getting weirder and weirder....

In another new Miami Herald blog, Idy Fernandez has started posting the results of a really smart project she started a few weeks back: Your Stories. Idy asked readers to send her story ideas and promised to report them. The stories have been running in The Herald, and this blog is her Reporters' Notebook about how it went.
