“This case comes down to common sense,” Reichling said. “What it shows is this defendant was definitely stealing fuel from Miami Dade County.”

The cop’s defense? He would never put lower quality, 87 octane county gasoline in his wife’s expensive BMW.

Stupidity is dangerous
Lauren Evans: Oregon Gubernatorial Candidate Says Educated Women ‘Aren’t Susceptible’ To Sexual Abuse
Did you know that educated women are not susceptible to sexual abuse? Me neither! Luckily, here comes Oregon gubernatorial candidate Bud Pierce to set us all straight. This important lesson was delivered just moments after his opponent, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, revealed for the first time that she’d been the victim of domestic violence.

“A woman that has great education and training and a great job is not susceptible to this kind of abuse by men, women or anyone,” Pierce said during a debate on Friday, raising his index finger in what I have forever come to think of as “the Trump Shocker.”

Mary Wasche: “Escape to Alaska” and “Murder in Wasilla”
By Matt Hickman Frontiersman.com ‘Murder in Wasilla’ author at book signing Saturday
WASILLA — Alaska may have more homegrown authors per capita than any state in the union, and in her two published books thus far, Mary Wasche has made the Last Frontier the setting.
She lived in Eagle River for more than 20 years, but moved back to her home state of Minnesota last spring to be closer to family.
She’s back this weekend for a book signing at Barnes & Noble in Anchorage from 1 to 3 p.m.
She’ll have with her “Escape to Alaska”, a combination thriller-love story, and the crime drama “Murder in Wasilla”, even as her next book, a novel set during the Civil War gets ready for print, hopefully by year’s end.
