Infant port-a-potties must be the new thing. Last week I saw a mother having her kid go to the bathroom in one of them in the back of a pick-up truck in the parking lot of a local supermarket. Now here's a story about a mother who whipped out a port-a-potty in the middle of a crowded deli, and had her kid do her business right there, as the other diners looked on in disbelief. One diner snapped a photo, for the benefit of the internet.
Police in North Vernon, Indiana say it is obvious this man had a death wish. That may not be so uncommon for men his age and perhaps in his profession, but he accomplished it in a very disturbing fashion. I've followed the events in The North Vernon Plain Dealer & Sun, but I do find it somewhat unnerving that the story is making the rounds through many newspapers in central and southern Indiana, as I fear widespread dissemination of the story may open the door to copycats.

Unrelated bonus mugshot from the same paper of Nikkiah C. Weddle, a loving mother, that just appears slothful. I feel that her having smoked marijuana three weeks earlier will play a heavy role in her defense, since we've all smoked a joint that we took almost a full month to recover from.
