Last night I was perusing SFist.com and came across a blurb about a 19 year old man arrested in Menlo Park, CA for peeing in (not on, IN) someone's window. The owners of the house confronted the guy as he was coming around from the backyard still zipping up his pants!! He fled and a day or so later he was arrested on a warrant for indecent exposure and vandalism. Turns out this is his 3rd arrest for the same issue. Takes water-sports to a whole new level, now doesn't it?
Anyway, the link I followed for the report took me to the most evil of websites: FoxNews.com. The Enigma will wander over there to, as he puts it, "see what the other side is being told to think" but I would rather gnaw off my hands than to stomach what passes for news there. (It's an acute prejudice, I realize. Therapy may help; we'll see).
The article was listed in Entertainment in the FoxNews "Out There" column. And face it, some teenager who gets his ya-yas out by peeing into people's homes is pretty "out there." Listed right below it was this next article (behind the cut simply because I'm posting the whole 4-5 paragraphs) about a man who tried to rob a beauty school/salon in Louisiana. Besides the absurdity of his actions and the consequences of those actions I was impressed by the quality of the writing. I could imagine a hardened reporter banging away with three fingers on his old Underwood, a cigar cocked to one side of his mouth as he types this phrase:
beating him with their tools of beautification...
Here, as Paul Harvey would say, is the ( REST of the story. )
