Midwest Division Friday Feast; May 29, 2009

My apologies to all, for I have not posted the Feast in a while. Life gets in the way of Blogging sometimes. C’est la vie.

Man Arrested For Mowing Lawn; Sandusky, OH: An Ohio man was arrested for obstruction after he refused to stop mowing the lawn at a local park. Apparently the city has not had enough money to maintain the park, and this man took the matter into his own hands. Chicago Tribune via AP

Rare US Flag found in Milwaukee School; Milwaukee, WI: A recent fire to the steeple at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. K-8 school in Milwaukee led to the discovery of a US flag from 1897 with only 45 stars. Chicago Tribune via AP

;KFC Sponsors Potholes Louisville, KY: A month ago KFC proposed to help the nation’s cities out by sponsoring pothole repairs and leaving a stencil on the patch informing everybody that this is a KFC repaired pothole. The Headcandy Blog offers more ideas for corporate sponsorship. Chicago Tribune

Facebook Photo Gets Man Arrested; Dane County, WI: When Cody Redenius’ ex-girlfriend saw a photo of him on Facebook holding a shotgun, she notified police. Redenius had previously had an injunction filed against him for domestic abuse which included a provision that he cannot possess firearms. When police went to his home, Redenius turned over his loaded shotgun. The Capital Times

He admitted to urinating in the elevator for months, causing near $5,000 dollars in damage. (editorial comment: I believe this guy deserves a medal.) wcco.com via AP wcco.com via AP

Lawn - Oh, I can see the uptight bureaucrats going nuts over this and screaming "if the guy hurt himself, he could sue the city for not posting signs telling people not to mow the grass."

KFC - I don't think this is a bad idea. If the city doesn't have enough money to repair the streets alone, then let the businesses who can afford it help out. Who cares if the road says KFC for awhile. People will be driving over it enough to fade it out in no time.

IRS - hickory said it best 😉
