NYT Headline of the Day

We interrupt this rally for what must be the funniest story I have read in I don't know how long:

Corpse Wheeled to Check-Cashing Store Leads to 2 Arrests

Even for the once-notorious Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, it may have been a first: Two men were arrested on Tuesday after pushing a corpse, seated in an office chair, along the sidewalk to a check-cashing store to cash the dead man’s Social Security check, the police said.

When Virgilio Cintron, 66, died at his apartment at 436 West 52nd Street recently, his roommate and a friend saw an opportunity to cash his $355 check, the police said.

They did not go about it the easy way, the police said, choosing a ruse that resembled the plot of “Weekend at Bernie’s,” a film about two young men who prop up their dead employer to pretend that he is alive.

Comments

In support of FreeMarkets, and corporate greed the "Money Honey" will be crossing the Writers picket lines, and going on Jay Leno.

Not that I care to support such a ridiculous Union, but they do deserve to get paid.
