What's on the nightstand

Tuesday, 6 January, 2004

Some days, a good thing just ends up getting better. David L and I had arranged to have lunch today with David D in honor of the last week of PMA Re. David was going to bring another person from his office, who - rudely - didn't even bother to show up. Much to our delight, George came instead! We had a nice lunch, filled with gossip and Woody Allen movie trivia.

[Q: What was the name of Woody Allen's serious movie about McCarthyism?]

Another trip to Columbus next week, and not only have they not captured the Columbus beltway sniper, but now they have another criminal on the loose:

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A man wearing a chicken suit robbed a Kroger grocery store last week on the city's west side, NewsChannel 4's Natalie Walston reported.

Police said a white man wearing a mask and bright yellow chicken suit with orange chicken feet entered the Kroger at 5800 West Broad Street at about 11:30 p.m. Friday. The robber showed employees a gun and demanded cash from the store's safe.

"It's pretty extraordinary," Columbus police Sgt. Shaun Laird said. "We've never had something like this. We've had guys wear fake mustaches now and again, but nothing like this."

The robber was not caught, even after he left the store in costume.

"The person either has access to some type of chicken costume or owns a chicken suit," Laird said. "So, if you know of someone, please call the robbery squad."

I think it was the guy who stood us up for lunch - there's a strong resemblance in the surveillance tape. Although the chicken had less nose hair.

[Cluck, cluck, cluck.]
