Ma calling. They don't make 'em like this guy. Or his bro.
Nobody hit quite like him either.
Four inmates plan and then carry out a daring escape. They "scaled the walls" and then walked through the nearby town. Eventually, security guards caught them and "escorted them back."
This event warrants a front page headline in my paper this morning, and the lead Page 4 article.
Q: What was this, a jailbreak? People from a mental institution?

News of major import for all India.
A New York based man by name Ashok Motiani claims this : "I am perhaps the best financial astrologer in the world." (Hindustan Times, November 19 2008). If that's not impressive enough, he says he "accurately predicted the last three stock market crashes in India." The clincher is, naturally, his "client repertoire of A-list Hollywood celebrities": Uma Thurman, Anthony Hopkins, Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, Gwyneth Paltrow, Billy Zane and John Cusack.
Mr Motiani also says that in 1992, his friend, "Bollywood director Vijay Anand, pursued [sic] him to predict a crash so that he could pull out his money in time. In October 1991, he predicted that the market would start crashing from February 1992 onwards. And he was right."
Some confusion with dates apart ... I'm wondering, does prognostication like this qualify as insider trading or some such?
"It has been observed", says Bhagwan Thadani in a letter to the Hindustan Times (November 19), "that for the last so many years, locals are struggling to get jobs owing to the influx of north and south Indians in the city. In many cases, these people who come to the city for work don't have any attachment to the city."
I have two simple questions.
One, how do you "observe" that locals are "struggling to get jobs owing the the influx"?
Two, how do you "observe" that some people "don't have any attachment to the city"?
Specific, explicit answers solicited.
What does a yellow light mean?
Vacuum cleaners, or maybe not.
