Interest Rate Of Doom
Gerald Georgettis decided that life wasn’t worth living following his purchase of a Ford Escape at a Miami, Dade dealership. After bringing the vehicle back and declaring his financing deal was all wrong, he poured gasoline over his new vehicle, and a few other new vehicles sitting in the new-car lot and set them ablaze. Georgettis was charged with arson. As if this wasn’t bad enough, Georgettis boarded United flight 209 from Washington to Los Angeles, entered the jet’s lavatory and hung himself. Authorities say all signs point to suicide.

Edney is charged with aggravated assault and has been suspended without pay pending termination.
Don’t Run In New York, We’ll Catch You
The New York Police Department will be replacing their aging Ford Crown Victoria and Chevrolet Impala fleet of police cruisers for the flashier and faster 2006 Dodge Charger. The vehicle can reach speeds upward of 150 mph and can go 0-60 in 6.5 seconds. The civilian model will sell for about $22,995 base, but law enforcement receives the vehicles at a discount. Expect to see them in your rear view mirrors by this summer.
Long Story Short

In either case, we’ll be there at about 5:30 p.m. Free buffet starts at around 6:00 p.m. $8 to enter. Our ski trip is about three weeks away, so get those sexy pajamas, cutting bathing suits and cozy winter gear together. Please be sure to contact Evelyn M. regarding your final payment. D.C. in mid to late April? That’s right; I’m hitting the road again and visiting my 2nd home. Sis’ Taqua I need to see you – I miss you girl! Soul wifey, leave a day available for me. The Breathe Bitch Conglomerate in D.C. should plan to do a night out – girls, no cabaret-style clubs this time.
