CHICAGO (UPI) -- With security in Chicago beefed for this 
weekend's NATO summit it was absolutely wrong time to rob 
a bank, a police officer said. 

Officer John McCarthy told the Chicago Tribune that he and 
his partner cornered a robbery suspect immediately after a 
man help up the Fifth Third Bank in Old Town on Monday. 

The officers found cash on the man and brought him back 
to the bank where he was immediately identified as the robber. 

McCarthy said the robber picked a "bad time" to hold up a 
bank given the heavy police presence on Chicago streets 
for the NATO summit. 

"It was just poor planning on his part," McCarthy said.
-----------
With police outnumbering the protesters and everybody 
behaving, a bank robbery must have been a welcome
bit of excitement.

Have FUN!

An American tourist in Tel Aviv was about to enter the impressive Mann Auditorium to take in a concert by the Israel Philharmonic. He was admiring the unique architecture, the sweeping lines of the entrance, and the modern decor throughout the building. Finally he turned to his escort and asked if the building was named for Thomas Mann, the world-famous author. "No," his friend said, "it's named for Fredric Mann, from Philadelphia." "Really? I never heard of him. What did he write?" "A check."

The minister's little six-year-old girl had been so naughty during the week, that her mother decided to give her the worst kind of punishment. She told her she couldn't go to the Sunday School Picnic on Saturday. When the day came, her mother felt she had been too harsh and changed her mind. When she told the little girl she could go to the picnic, the child's reaction was one of gloom and unhappiness. "What's the matter? I thought you'd be glad to go to the picnic." her mother said. "It's too late!" the little girl said. "I've already prayed for rain!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Man Dressed as Dead Mother for 6 Years Just when you think you've heard it all, a man goes and dresses up like his dead mother -- for six years -- in order to continue cashing in on her Social Security benefits. Thomas Prusik-Parkin was in court yesterday for allegedly collecting over $115,000 of his deceased mother Irene's government benefits after she died in 2003. How did he do it? Well, first, he reportedly changed Irene's death certificate, adding a fake Social Security number and birthday, making it seem it was for somebody else and like she was still alive. Then he went to the DMV to renew her driver's license, dressed like her. And then when people started growing suspicious of him during a real estate battle, he threw on a coat of nail polish, a red cardigan, and some lipstick and met with the DA's office. What could possibly go wrong, right? He ahs been in jail for 3 years so far, during the investigation, and faces up to 22 more years. His buddy is in jail too, as an accomplice.
Tech Support Pits: From: Mark RE: Converting email Dear Webby, How can I convert my email from Thunderbird to Eudora? We use Eudora at work at my new job and I love it! I can look up mails from the early 90's and everything is nicely sorted into separate mailboxes by department and client. I want to use it at home too now. Thunderbird is a lot newer and the Classic Eudora (6.2.5) does not have a way to import stuff from a program, that was written much later. is there a way to get mail across somehow, or should I just abandon it and start fresh? Thanks Mark Dear Mark Get a new, additional address from your ISP. Normally there is no charge for that. Set Eudora up to use that new address. Then forward all your mail to that new address. The mail will have forwarding marks, but it is old mail anyway, so that should not be a problem. Have FUN! DearWebby

Rummaging through her attic one day, my friend Kathryn found an old shotgun. Unsure how to dispose of it, she called her parents. "Take it to the police station," her mother suggested. My friend was about to hang up when her mom added.... "And, Kathryn?" "Yes, mom?" "Call them first and let them know you're coming."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Your Own Moon Sand For "moon sand", mix 9 cups play sand (really fine sand you can find at Wal-Mart). Add 3 cups cornstarch and 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups water. Start with 2 1/4 cup and continue adding water until you have the desired consistency. Mix well. Cover and store in an airtight container. You may need to add a few tablespoons of water if it needs to be moistened.

Mr. Gable had a leak in the roof over his dining room, so he called a repairman to take a look at it. "When did you first notice the leak?" the repairman inquired. Mr. Gable scowled. "Last night, when it took me two hours to finish my soup!"

The scene is sometime in the old era when cockpits had round dials plus flight engineers and navigators. The crusty old-timer captain is breaking in a brand new navigator. The captain opens his briefcase, pulls out a .38 and rests it on the glare panel. He asks the navigator, "Know what this is for?" "No, sir," replies the newbie. "I use it on navigators that get us lost," explains the captain, winking at his first officer. The navigator then opens his briefcase, pulls out a .45 an sets it on his chart table. "What's THAT for?" queries the surprised captain. "Well, sir," replies the navigator, "I'll know we're lost before you will."
