'Dumbest Criminal' Nabbed In Cop Convention Holdup

'Dumbest Criminal In Pennsylvania' Arrested After Allegedly Trying Robbery At Police Convention

HARRISBURG, Pa., Mar. 27, 2009

(AP) A retired police chief said he was robbed by "probably the dumbest criminal in Pennsylvania," at a police officers' convention on Friday morning. John Comparetto said as he came out of a stall in the men's room, a man pointed a gun in his face and demanded money. There were 300 narcotics officers from Pennsylvania and Ohio at the gathering.

Comparetto gave up his money and cell phone. But when the man fled, Comparetto and some colleagues chased him. They arrested a 19-year-old man as he was trying to leave in a taxi.

The suspect is also awaiting trial on four previous robbery charges.

The suspect was arraigned and taken to Dauphin County Prison. When a reporter asked the suspect for comment as he was led out of court, he said, "I'm smooth."


You know, I've heard of some random places to have a robbery, but this one is by far the funniest! Wow... That's all I have to say!

Flag Football

I never realized haw much fun it is to watch a bunch of five year olds play flag football. My son, Zak, just started Saturday. It is so funny to watch these kids run around. They don't care if they are going the right way, if they are running out of bounds... As long as NO ONE gets those flags, they are doing good! This is one proud momma! (My son is the one with the football in the top picture.)

He'll always be MY #1!

Bye, Deer! Colo. Interstate Shuts To Shoo Animals

Colo. Wildlife Officials Hold Deer Dear, Close Part Of Interstate To Herd Animals Off Median

EAGLE, Colo., Mar. 6, 2009

(AP) A seven-mile stretch of a busy mountain interstate in Colorado was closed for more than an hour so wayward elk and deer could be herded off the highway median.

State wildlife officials say eight elk and two deer spent nearly a week on a 100-yard-wide median of Interstate 70 about 120 miles west of Denver.

The road was closed Friday as more than 40 people and two dozen trucks from state and local police, highway and fire departments helped herd the animals through a hole that wildlife officers cut in a fence.

Wildlife officers were worried that the animals would be struck and killed by traffic.

Traffic was diverted onto a parallel highway.
See! Even the wildlife experience traffic jams!

Vegas Casino Sells 2-foot, 6-pound Burrito At Cafe
Vegas Casino Sells 6-pound Burrito At Cafe, But Patrons Who Can't Finish Get 'Weenie' Shirt

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 27, 2009

(AP) A Las Vegas casino cafe is rewarding patrons who can put away a 2-foot, 6-pound burrito with a most logical prize _ free unlimited rides on a roller coaster that runs in both forward and reverse.

The offer comes with a caveat, though: Those who accept the challenge but can't finish "The Bomb" burrito have to take a picture with an extra small, pink T-shirt that says "Weenie."

The NASCAR Cafe at the Sahara Hotel & Casino began selling the cheese-and-guacamole slathered burrito on Thursday for $19.95.

Those who can finish the monstrous entree get it for free, along with two unlimited coaster passes and a T-shirt proclaiming they "Conquered the Bomb."
