SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 2009
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Police in Texas said a woman who was caught on camera burglarizing a house multiple times told investigators she thought the home was abandoned...She returned several of the items reported stolen, including a vacuum, a wrench set, a few flashlights and a cooler. However, she said she did not know anything about a second cooler and $1,250 in cash that were also reported missing.
All the things one normally finds in an abandoned house. Send her a lawyer.

LA PLATA, Md. (AP) -- A Charles County judge who acknowledged deflating a tire of a car parked in a restricted area near the courthouse has resigned as chief administrator of the Circuit Court. Circuit Court Judge Robert Nalley is not resigning from the bench. In a letter submitted Thursday to Maryland Court of Appeals Chief Judge Robert Bell, Nalley made no reference to this week's controversy over the tire deflation.
If he has a compelling life story, he's still got a shot at the Supreme Court.
From NBC: He's interviewed Oprah, D-Wade and now President Obama. No, we're not talking about Rush Limbaugh, Anderson Cooper or Larry King. Damon Weaver already has a resume to match all of those big shot media powers, and he's only 11. Weaver, who will be starting the 6th grade next week at Canal Point Elementary in Palm Beach, was at the White House on Thursday to grill the president for an hour on issues much deeper than his favorite cartoon growing up and if he was bullied in school.
Chances are, the questions were a lot better than those usually asked at a presidential news conference.
