Another of the Best of the Web

James Taranto, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal publishes a page every working day that documents some of the more humorous aspects of journalism as it is practiced in this country. From the 2nd of July edition comes this bon mot:
He Held the Cigarette in One Hand, a Machine Gun in the Other, and Planted One Foot on Either Side of the State Line
Police and FBI agents captured an ex-convict suspected of killing eight people in two states as he smoked a cigarette outside of a southwestern Illinois bar Tuesday night."--Associated Press, July 1.

I am sure that since he was smoking, he was beyond redemption. Although, a good defense lawyer could show that he paid the cigarette tax, and was only interested in helping to fund children's health care.
