Friday Follies VII

Okay, last week’s Follies were a bit top-heavy, but fun. This week’s will be short and sweet, thanks to a bandit with a sweet tooth. Among other oddities…

Madison, WI: Just Rollin’ Along…

It’s a good thing cops use carcams these days, or this story would have been missed by most folks. Seems a drunken bandit, one […]
