The article Rick earlier blogged on, I just reread it and realized something more.
The robber may have worn a fake mustache, Lacey police reported.
I suppose if you have to live in hell, being able to define and describe it can make it tolerable. Or not. If nothing else, makes for better communication with 911.

Yeah, I know, very strange. Keep in mind this is the same character who earlier in the academic year had performed the "Easter Pimp" trick (see Evergroove Trivia pt. 45).
I will admit I'm a bit of a fatalist. I do not believe anything happens by accident or coincidence. And I'm just superstitious enough to pay more attention to a stunt like this than it deserves. Maybe the fact I can remember this after over three decades was due to the primeval and mystical setting of virgin timber. Or maybe I'm just a dork. OK, we all know the answer to that one, so let's just move on.
A long time passed before any vehicles showed up. When they did, two cars approached from opposite directions, and they hit the stick at exactly the same moment!!!! Weird with a beard, man. This was the kind of stuff Evergreeners liked to eat with a spoon.
So, as far as I know, the Easter Pimp is still alive and well. But I'll tell you one thing, I'm never getting in the same car, plane, elevator, train, etc. with him.
The question was whether the federal government or state government should foot the bill. Right now, FEMA is saying the federal government is going to foot the bill for a year and then, after that, each state is on its own.
As the feature pointed out, this wouldn't be a big deal if everyone (or even the majority) were to get into the workforce.
Unfortunately, many of those displaced by Katrina did not previously and will not in the future contribute to the tax base. They are forever on Uncle Sam's payroll.
From the Olympian:
There have been a number of robberies in Thurston County the past three months, with thieves donning an array of outfits from witch costumes to cowboy boots.
The photo on the top of the stack included an image of one of the 100+ people who had been my roommates as I moved every six months during the 1970s-early 80s. This particular person was another follower of Jobbo Bonobo. He had a habit of declaring "EX-cellent!" when something pleased him, and he liked to laugh.
He also liked to ski. One night he got real drunk, went to our freezer, emptied all the ice cubes on the floor, donned his skiis, got out the ski poles, and attempted to demonstrate some cross-country technique by having ice cubes serve as substitute snow. Spider Burbank would've been horrified.
And that memory came with just the first photo. I was able to identify scores of people in there. As you might have guessed, I have mixed feelings about being an Evergreen grad, as more time passes the less connected I feel to the College. Going through those photographs was a wonderful jump-start in these middle-aged brain cells about why I was attracted to the Evergroove program in the first place. Also a great way to wake up forgotten memories about people and places that are gone. If you are a fellow grad of the TESC prehistoric era, take an afternoon off, call Randy, and help us match names with the faces in the Evergreen family album.
After weeks of careful discussion and consideration, we are very pleased to announce that Henry (Hank) Adams has been selected as the recipient of the 2006 American Indian Visionary Award. The award is given in recognition of his qualities of vision, courage, commitment and discipline - but it was Adams' quiet modesty or natural humility that was found most admirable.
Give Ramona Bennett the final word: ''Somewhere in Olympia, Wash., there is a thin, aging Assiniboine-Sioux man leaning over a computer. He is making sure we have a tomorrow.''
