11:09 am - doin' all right, gettin good grades
Today's best (and probably only) Timbuk 3 ref drop goes to Boston Police Department News blog for its brilliant headline (admittedly with a typo) for a story involving a thwarted robbery:
Suspects Bright Future Requiring Sunglasses Comes to a Screeching Stop
Seriously, if you haven't put the bpdnews feed on your friends list, you gotta. Sure, there's a lotta depresso in there about gunshots and murders, but you also get stories with headlines like that. Or the story of the fellow parked alone in his car in the middle of the night who, when approached by police inquiring as to what he was doing, casually answered "Oh, just smoking a blunt."

Don't forget the story of the coyote in Hyde Park who came out the woods, snatched a small terrier in its mouth, and left the owner holding nothing but the leash.

I am so happy to learn that 'burglarious' is a word. I never would've dreamed it.

I was happy to learn this as well!

It seems to be a compound of "burglar" and "hilarious." Very Keystone Kops.

The best is when they still use "Infernal Machine" in charges involving explosives.

Like that umbrella they used to kill that guy in London? Oh never mind, I thought you said "Bulgarious".

Ooh, I do have to add it! Thanks for the tip.

One of my frustrations with the Press & Dakotan's daily record is that it nearly always leaves me with questions. This tells more of the story, which is nice.

It amuses me that quarters are classified as dangerous weapons, though.

I was thinking of bpdnews as Borderline Personality Disorder News. "Today: Your inner demon hates you. Federal commission report on your capacity to recieve love is expected this afternoon."
