STIR'S FINITE NICK & NORAH PLAYLIST

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is the hot new movie in theaters this week. It inspired us to create our own playlist of songs by, about or loosely associated with people named Nick and Norah.

-- Cruel to Be Kind, by Nick Lowe

-- Don't Know Why, by Norah Jones

-- Hot Child in the City, by Nick Gilder

-- Nobody Takes Pictures of the Drummer, by New Jersey heavy metal band Nora (frankly, we've never heard of them either, but it's a great song title)

-- Pink Moon, by Nick Drake

-- No, No, Nora, by Eddie Cantor

-- Edge of Seventeen, by Stevie Nicks

-- The Bottoms, by Nora O'Connor

-- Rockstar, by Nick-elback

-- Eleanora Rigby, by the Beatles. Yeah, yeah, we know, that's not the title of the song. But you try to find another "Norah" song.

CRIME

LOOKING FOR SOME CONCRETE LEADS

Missing: One elephant.

Description: 3 feet tall, 4 1/2 feet long, 85 pounds, made of concrete.

Suspects: University of Alabama fans, Democrats

Debbie Harper of Oak Leaf Plantation said her beloved concrete elephant, which was a gift from her husband 18 years ago and which she moved all the way from Texas last year, was swiped out of her front yard last week. She said she suspects it might have been an Alabama fan who misappropriated her pachyderm -- it came up missing the morning after the Alabama-Georgia game. She just wants it back. "I'm sure someone out there has noticed an elephant showing up where there wasn't one before."

If you have any leads, pass them on to the A.M. Stir Elephant-Nappers Hotline at backtalk@jacksonville.com. No questions asked.
