Mugshot Monday

Offense : Threw A Deadly Missile Into/at Within Occupied Vehicle.  Whoa 

How much is that doggie in the window...?

I thought this was a guy with weird hair.  Turns out the guy's name is Traci.

Bad hair day. Uh scratch that, bad hair year.

This 80 year old was arrested for sexual battery.  Perv. Perv with big ears.

Arrested for "inhalation of dangerous substance."  Looks like we caught him too late.

Your getting sleepy...

Mean looking dude.

Whole body art.

I don't know what they are, but they do look nice.  Wouldn't that hurt?

The definition of "craggy-faced."

Bicycling To Clearwater

I heard about a car show in Clearwater a couple weeks ago so I decided to go.  But how to go and avoid all the traffic and parking problems that would be inevitable?  The traffic down here is pretty rough going even without the snowbirds.    

This is a map of the Pinellas Trail, a bike and pedestrian walkway that stretches all the way from downtown St. Pete all the way up to Tarpon Springs.  When I was living at Shawshank I'd hop on the bicycle, take a short three or four block ride up to the Trail and bike across to the Trop to catch a Rays game.

Peace of Their Mind

Yesterday was the 108th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.  Like a lot of kids and adults, I've had a minor love affair with the story of the unsinkable ship sinking on its maiden voyage.  Little mentioned is the Carpathia and its valiant effort to reach the sinking ship. 

Carpathia received Titanic’s distress signal at 12:20am, April 15th, 1912. She was 58 miles away, a distance that absolutely could not be covered in less than four hours. (Californian’s exact position at the time is…controversial. She was close enough to have helped. By all accounts she was close enough to see Titanic’s distress rockets. It’s uncertain to this day why her crew did not respond, or how many might not have been lost if she had been there. This is not the place for what-ifs. This is about what was done.) Carpathia’s Captain Rostron had, yes, rolled out of bed instantly when woken by his radio operator, ordered his ship to Titanic’s aid and confirmed the signal before he was fully dressed. The m…
