Expect to see your Aquila bill go up by $20 per month to cover the cost.

"Stolen truck found, burned and destroyed"

Am I the only one who read this headline and wondered why they found the truck, then burned and destroyed it? It's been a loooong day!

Also, I know Lawrence is growing fast, but I've never heard of "eiggth" street! While in undergrad, some friends and I took to watching channel 6 news as a drinking game...every time they screwed up, you had to drink. Everything from running the wrong tape to forgetting the mic was on was fair game. I've never been brave enough to do the same with the ljworld:-)
