Murder They Wrote

Folks in 'Bama go to great lengths (or barrier reefs) to creatively murder their spouses.

American scuba diver charged with killing wife:

"SYDNEY, Australia - Eleven days after getting married in 2003, an Alabama woman put on diving gear and slipped into the water off Australia's coast for what was supposed to be a romantic exploration of a shipwreck with her new husband."

Job security.

BBC NEWS | Europe | Journalist 'reported own murders':

"Police in Macedonia have arrested a journalist on suspicion that he is behind three murders he reported on."

No sense in being in just a little bit of trouble. Check out how the cop got him to stop.

Drunk driver takes traffic cop for a ride:

"VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (Reuters) - A Russian drunk driver knocked over a traffic policeman then drove for about 1 km (0.6 miles) with the officer clinging to the roof of his car, local police said on Friday."

Just because I couldn't wait until Friday:

Since you didn't mention it, I'm guessing you didn't make the road trip to Sac last night. It was a good show (as it always is) and a good crowd. Well worth the trip.

Thanks, Andy.

Jim, I didn't make it to Sac last night. I'm in the middle of a move so it wasn't in the cards. Glad to hear it rocked, though. I'll be catching them in SF in August and later in the year.
