5 Things To Know This AM — Nov 29 2010

New York's crime rate is dramatically on the rise...err, for squirrels. Our furry friends are being massacred by dogs and everyone from chess players to drug dealers are outraged! (Gawker)
Apparently those full body scanners are really bringing out, well, something in people. One woman took it a little too far though, exposing her breasts not just to security officers, but a plane full of people en-route to JFK. (Gothamist)
If you haven't heard of Evelyn Lozada yet, trust, you will—at least if she has anything to do it about. The Bronx native and reality TV star got engaged to Bengals receiver Chad Ochoninco, and promptly compared their status to Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Pretty sure she means Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. (New York Post)
Well this may be something to take our minds off new fare hikes: Taxi drivers are apparently getting a new dress code as the TLC wants cabbies to "present a professional appearance." If it were up to us, getting rid of all those hands-free headsets would be a bigger priority. (NY1)
We're not sure where you were for Black Friday, but we are sure as all get out glad that we weren't at the Target in Buffalo New York, where shoppers were trampled and injured in the mad rush of people. Looks like the deals weren't the only thing that was crazy. (Perez Hilton)
