I Ain't Tellin' You No Lies

Uh...

This about John Popper, from today's USA Today:

By Douglas Mason, AP
"Inside the black Mercedes SUV, officers found a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife, a Taser and night vision goggles. The vehicle also had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a public address system," according to the story.



He was a passenger in the vehicle, which was doing 111 mph!

"Popper, who lives in Snohomish, Wash., is the owner of the vehicle, which was being driven by Brian Gourgeois, 34, of Austin, Texas. "

The article does not report how many--if any--harmonicas were discovered in the SUV.

Really, I was stunned at the news article. Funny thing though, I mentioned it by telephone to Route 75 that Popper had been arrested, and he asked: "For pot or guns?" Apparently everyone knew this about Popper but me.

The vehicle also had. . . a public address system. . .

Personally, I prefer using Mr. Microphone.

Well, that's the last time I bestow Album of the Day honors to Blues Traveller. Probably just as well.

I wonder how much a "small amount of marijuana" is. 'cause if its sale weight, all those guns mean Popper is in a serious load of trouble.

Hey JDB ... do you think you could do a "book of the day" honor for Ann Coulter and see what happens?
