Today’s Pictures in the News feature brings us an image of a crumpled L.A. newspaper from the 1930s discovered with the mummified remains of two infants; exercise under the rising sun in front of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia; a swim in Beijing; acrobatics in Katmandu, Nepal; and a Bruce Lee wannabe making the most of a photo op at the Shanghai World Expo site. Firearms once owned by Mexican drug lords decorated with gold, jewelry and, for good measure, the Virgin of Guadalupe; tobacco harvesting in Switzerland, and fishing in the Adriatic Sea at sunset are all part of the mix, along with an age-old standoff between opposing species. Feel free to take a bite.
