Mailing It In (from Maine with Love)

E-mailing to be exact. As in: I’m e-mailing this post in because its hot (for once this summer) and I’m tired, deal with it.

We are going to focus on two of the more stupid criminals in recent time (or at least one of the most intoxicated and one who just wanted a drink)...both from Maine...go figure

BAR HARBOR, Maine -- Police said a homeowner in Maine used a beer to entice an intoxicated intruder to leave. The intruder apparently didn't realize that it was a nonalcoholic beer. Bar Harbor police said the homeowner awoke early Monday to find 22-year-old Scott Cote in the bedroom and used the beer to convince him to carry on.

MACHIAS, Maine — A 77-year-old Princeton woman faced down a man armed with a sawed-off shotgun and sent him running after she pointed her own gun at him, according to court documents.

I’ll leave you to judge each criminal on his own merits.

In the meantime, the Wife and I are off to the Washingtonian’s “Best of Washington” Party tonight. I’ll try to keep a festivious journal of our tastings and sippings to report back on tomorrow.
