Breaking News: Bank Robber Decides to Not Wait for Police

Headline in today’s Daily Collegian, which is the excellent student newspaper at Penn State: Bank Robber Flees Scene.

I have to admit that I was not surprised by that–rarely do you find a bank robber who decides to wait around for the police to show up.

Seriously, the Collegian is great–often with better writing and reporting than the local paper–but that headline was too funny to pass up.
