Out of Carroll, Iowa comes the story of two would-be robbers who seemed to be without masks. But they had a black permanent marker.
Matthew McNelly and Joey Miller, c'mon down! You're on the national news wire for being complete dumb-asses! Your mothers must be so proud of you. And it's a pretty safe bet that you won't be getting those Mensa certificates anytime soon.
"They were being dumb and, combine that with alcohol, and it was the perfect storm," Carroll Police Chief Jeff Cayler told CNN.
"I've been chief here almost 25 years, been with the department 28½
years and I've seen a lot of things that make me laugh and weird things
but this was probably the best combination of the two -- strangely
weird and hilariously funny all at the same time."
Uh oh. More fall-out from the failed foreign policy of the Cheney/Bush administration.
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea, facing international sanction for
this week's nuclear test, threatened on Wednesday to attack the South
after Seoul joined a U.S.-led initiative to check vessels suspected of
carrying equipment for weapons of mass destruction.
A North Korean army spokesman also said the country was no longer
bound by the armistice signed at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War
because Washington had ignored its responsibility as a signatory by
drawing South Korea into its naval initiative.
Before George W. Bush got his mitts on things, North Korea was more or less a contained, though fucked up, dictatorship. Now, they're an unstable, got-nothing-to-lose, fucked up dictatorship with an ailing yet trigger-happy dictator. Yet another flaming bag of diplomatic poop left at the White House front door by the worst president ever as he left town.
I'm sure Darth Cheney will find a way to tag the Obama administration for whatever happens... unless it's a peaceful and legal resolution. Then, of course it will be god's will or some crap like that.
