Just Gotta Shake Your Head and Wonder

Looks like it's going to be one of those weeks. First the Greenpeace incident, then this newsflash:
According to Houston police, a married couple was arguing at their apartment on Dairy Ashford and threatened to douse each other with lighter fluid.

Sgt. L.A. Flores said the couple was partying and alcohol was involved.
(So maybe I was being a little too hard on Arkansas last week.)

Then there was the "good Samaritan" who stopped to help a vampire in distress:
"Imagine you're sitting on this dark roadway, you have a hysterical woman beside you, and the devil jumps on your hood," Portaro said.

Seeing a demon on the car startled the motorist and the vehicle sped off...
The demon (her husband) was later found and detained by state troopers, who took his mug shot in full costume (sans horns).

And then there was the Breakfast Bandit:
Man Could Get Life Sentence in Syrup Theft

Life could get a lot less sweet for a Putney man whose conviction in the sale of stolen maple syrup makes him eligible for life in prison as a habitual offender.
Sometimes you just have to shake your head and wonder.

He was a habitual syrup thief? I didn't even realize there was a black market for syrup... I guess I need to get out more.
