Soaring platter of death
The man who invented the Frisbee died last Tuesday at his home in Monroe, Utah. Walter Fredrick Morrison was 90.
A 6-year-old boy was hit in the head by an errant disc thrown from Huntington Beach Central Park's Disc Golf Course, prompting his mother to file a formal complaint against the city, the Orange County Register reports today.

It's a jungle out there, Jim.
