San Fran Chronic

The old San Francisco Chronicle's penchant for strange and weird stories eventually inspired imitation by the lower priced supermarket tabloids. Even after being bought by the Hearst chain, the Chronic still finds these stories:Pregnant woman accused of stabbing boyfriend--
"A 27-year-old pregnant San Mateo County woman is in jail accused of stabbing her boyfriend with a kitchen knife after the couple argued about her nutritional choices, authorities said.

The 18-year-old boyfriend, whom police have not identified, is being treated at a local hospital for stab wounds to his right lung and liver, said San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Christine Ford. He is expected to recover and be released from the hospital sometime in the next couple of days, she said...

“There was an argument over her nutritional habits and how they impinged on the health of the pregnancy,” Ford said.

Islas is three months pregnant by her boyfriend of several years. Islas allegedly grabbed a serrated kitchen knife and stabbed the 18-year-old boyfriend in the abdomen. "

For heavens sake, let the poor pregnant woman dive into a quart or two of Dreyer's crunchy pecan.
