The day's most popular stories

The five most popular stories on CNN.com in the past 24 hours, according to NewsPulse.

Ex-NFL player had brain disease: Former NFL lineman Shane Dronett's transformation from an affable prankster, quick to flash a wry smile, to a person who was often frightened - and frightening - was subtle at first. The tragic culmination of his pain came when he committed suicide in 2009 at 38.

GoDaddy founder under fire for elephant hunt: The CEO of GoDaddy.com on Friday defended an online video that shows him shooting and killing an elephant in Zimbabwe.

12 killed in Afghan Quran burning protests: Twelve people were killed Friday in an attack on a U.N. compound in northern Afghanistan that followed a demonstration against the reported burning last month of a Quran in Florida, authorities said.

Last island prison in U.S. closes: For over a century the picturesque waters around McNeil Island had a job to do: they kept the inmates in. But after 135 years, Friday will be closing time at McNeil - and the water off its shores will no longer be needed to deter escaping prisoners.

Missing cobra found alive in Bronx Zoo: An Egyptian cobra that drew thousands of Twitter fans has been found alive after it went missing for days from a New York City zoo.

    Please spare me. I was in the military. Being vulgar does not shock me. I find your other posts with such profanity so amusing. I love it. I should pay you for such reading, true entertaining value.

    These people in Afghanistan remind me of some sports fans here. We all protest what we don't like every day. We all celebrate what we do like. How do either of these things lead to random violence and property damage? I'm not catching the link here...
