When you don't really know where you're going

There’s a Gary Larson Far Side cartoon in which inmates with great anticipation are burrowing their way out of prison, not knowing that they’re going to emerge into a lake. We’re reminded of that by today’s Associated Press story out of Skagit County about a woman being questioned in a robbery case in the Burlington Police Department. She, too, was trying to escape, in this case by climbing through a ceiling panel in the interview room, only to fall from an attic crawl space — right into the Burlington police chief’s office. The best-laid plans. … The full story can be found at The Skagit Valley Herald website.
