*------------ Hurray for Hollyweed ------------*

The new year also brought a new sight for residents of La La Land on Sunday. The famous "Hollywood" sign in the hills over Los Angeles read slightly differently -- "Hollyweed." Someone made the changes to the iconic Los Angeles landmark by obscuring parts of the double-'o' to make them appear as a double-'e.' The Los Angeles Police Department, which has jurisdiction over the sign, said surveillance video has indicated that a lone individual made the change. Incidentally, this isn't the first time the sign read "Hollyweed." The same change was made exactly 41 years ago, on the same date -- New Year's Day -- in 1976 by an art student as part of a project assignment. That was also the day California law changed to make possession of marijuana, up to an ounce, a misdemeanor rather than a felony.


*-------- Man Robs Bank for Bail Money --------*

You don't find many friends like this. A man who wanted to raise cash to bail out his female roommate, decided to rob a bank while leaving his sick stepdaughter home alone, according to police in Texas. Odessa police said that they have arrested 47-year-old Gregory regory Wayne Fant, after being accused of robbing the Prosperity Bank. According to the police investigation, Fant was taking care of his sick stepdaughter when he decided to rob a bank in order to raise enough cash to bail out his female roommate. He went into the Prosperity Bank and threatened a teller with a gun. He fled from the scene with nearly $10,000 in cash. He then used some of the cash to bail out his female roommate from jail. The roommate was identified as Latrice Hopes. But no good deed goes unpunished, because it was Hopes who later called the police to say that Fant robbed the bank.

*-------------- READER COMMENTS --------------*

The San Diego cops waited for 9 hours for that woman to come out of her apartment? She had to be white cause if she had been a woman of color they would have lit her up. And I'm a white guy!

Lewis, That was quite a bust in San Diego. -Joe

Lewis, I've said all along that women should not be allowed to handle firearms, and this story about the naked woman in San Diego just proves it.
[Is that all women, or just naked women, in your opinion?]
