flavored with age


From the story about the kidnapped and murdered Wal-Mart employee in Texas:

Tyler Police Chief Gary Swindle confirmed the body of Megan Leann Holden, a 19-year-old college student from Henderson whose kidnapping was captured on videotape late Wednesday, was found.

A law enforcement name you can trust, Gary Swindle. But wait, there's more!

A surveillance videotape "shows Megan getting into her truck and the (man) running up behind her and either hitting her or pushing her," police spokesman Don Martin said earlier. "Then the vehicle drives off."

Fester Bestertester could not be reached for comment.

By the way, while idly Googling 'Don Martin', I found this, which may be my favorite site ever now. It's not just the amazing Don Martin sound effects, but the delightfully flat descriptions: "Sound of Man's Head Squashed By a Large Bottomed Bus Rider."
