Cold Open

A long cold open. I found a letter I had written to my bank to describe the frustration my wife and I suffered while trying to correct an error the bank made.

Doing Time, She Didn't See That Coming

I getting...yes...You will be very successful at bilking people of their money.

A "psychic" who had bilked several people out of $1.6 million got 37 months in prison. You can read more about it here.

It's Not True

I told about a piece I spotted on Facebook about a fellow coming up with a creative way to get police to respond more quickly to a situation that the police, apparently, didn't think was serious enough. The story wasn't true, but similar incidents did happen and the false reports ended in arrests of the people making the reports.

Go here to see what snopes.com has to say about this.

Adopt An Atheist

Hey, little atheist, can I release your inner whatever religion I am?

The Catholic League has started a campaign to get their members to adopt atheists. They hope to help release the atheists' inner selves, which the Lea
gue believes are Christian. Good luck with that.

Movie Recommendation (Two-fer!): Stalag 17 (1953) & Bridge On The River Kwai (1957)

Both are WWII prisoner of war movies. Stalag 17 in Europe, while Bridge On The River Kwai is in the Pacific. Stalag 17 is actually a comedy. Both are directed by two of the greatest directors of all time: Billy Wilder and David Lean, respectively. Both also star one of my man-crushes, William Holden. Both are very good.
