Coincidental Juxtaposition
Every nownagain one sees something that just ... strikes as ... amusing. Or odd. Like seeing an online ad for Travelocity alongside a news page reporting the bombing of an airplane. My Moment of Hunh today came in the 'regional roundup' column of the daily noisepaper. A couple of articles out of the Great Commonwealth of Virginia, the second of which reporting out of Bedford, VA that hoops legend Shaquille O'Neal is getting specialized training with the Bedford County Sheriff's Office. Not by itself extraordinary, keeping in mind that Shaq has long had this law enforcement connection. What sets it off, however, is the article which precedes the Shaq story. And I will give its title only: "Authorities Seek Police Impersonator."
You don't say.
