Arlington County police are on the lookout for a man who has made at least one failed robbery attempt and possibly another; it’s unclear what happened when he went into a bank and seemed to start to write a note but then left. It’s completely clear what happened at the check cashing joint he went to later: he demanded money from a clerk and discharged a firearm. Nobody was hurt but this sure reads like a desperate person getting more erratic. Based on the look of the wig he chose to disguise himself with this fellow is already past reason and has taken leave of his senses.

Kidding aside, if you recognize the picture on the linked news release don’t deal with the guy yourself; call the number and let the cops deal with him. Armed and panicked is scarier than garden-variety criminal.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
