Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
The Caped Crusader never got dissed like this.
Michigan police officers had to arrest Mark Wayne Williams because he wouldn't get out of the way while they were investigating a crime scene.
It seems Mr. Williams was wearing his "Batman" outfit at the time, and it's not the first occurrance of his dress-up habit. He was also arrested last year on the roof of a business. He was carrying a baton (weapon), can of chemical irritant spray, and a pair of sand-filled gloves.
We talked about this on Memphis Morning News today, and I was particularly intrigued at the possession of the gloves. "Sand-filled gloves? Why would he have those?", I wanted to know.
Thankfully, a helpful listener emailed to let me know that the knuckles are filled with sand within the fabric, not in the part where your hand goes. (It's evidently so when you hit someone with one of these, it really hurts the other person - used in military and law enforcement. Thanks, Michael!)
Don't believe me about the gloves? Check this out.
As for Mr. Williams, there's no word on when his next adventure will be. But I'm sure the Michigan cops are keeping an eye on him. Get more here.
