State police said a 23-year-old Bushkill woman had her lottery winnings ripped from her hands in the parking lot of the Turkey Hill in Middle Smithfield Township on Feb. 14.
Police say the suspect is a white female, 5 feet, 2 inches tall, about 100 to 125 pounds with black hair in a bun. She was wearing a black jacket, purple pajama bottoms with an unknown pattern and white shoes.
Police said the victim cashed in her winning lottery ticket for $100 at the Turkey Hill, located on Winona Falls Road, and that the suspect knew of her winnings. The suspect waited outside the Turkey Hill and followed the victim to her car, where she grabbed the victim by the arm and took the money from her right hand.
The suspect got away in a small, black Nissan sedan with tinted windows.
The victim was not hurt in the robbery.
State police are investigating and ask anyone with information to call state police at Swiftwater.

Everything about this story is awesome.

Turkey Hill is a gas station/convenience store for the poorz. Think WaWa, Sheetz, Flying J, etc.

Well, except the part about $100 not being an adequate retainer.

NY and NYC are suing UPS and FedEx for helping get young kids cigarettes.
Quote:
New York City and New York state sued United Parcel Service Inc. on Wednesday, seeking over $180 million in damages and penalties against the shipping company for allegedly delivering nearly 700,000 cartons of untaxed cigarettes across the state.
....
The state wants UPS to pay $1,000 per violation, or penalties of $78.5 million, for violating the 2005 agreement. It also seeks $89.1 million in treble damages for the state and $14.1 million for the city under the federal racketeering statute for the loss of tax revenue.

The company "cost the state millions in revenue and is helping to make illegal, low-cost cigarettes available to our young people," Schneiderman said.

WTF, you mean UPS and FedEx don't open every package and inspect them? What of terrorists! What of the children!

Maybe Eric Garner was getting his untaxed cigs via UPS.

Can't his family sue UPS too?

They've only sued NYC for $75,000,000

Well, UPS is a bunch of incompetent assclowns. If Garner had been getting his cigarettes via UPS, the delivery almost certainly would have been lost or mis-delivered, leaving Garner with no product and thus no reason to be out on that street on that day. So really, it's not using UPS that cost him his life.
All the more reason to sue them, of course.

Garner's family might have sued for too little at only $75,000,000

Garner was probably making $100,000 a day and he had about 31 kids and high standing in the community.

Rumors have it that DeBlasio has already OKed a $75,000,000 settlement. If Garner's Lawyers had asked for something like $2,000,000,000, DeBlasio would have jumped on a 1 Billion $ settlement. Of course this is NYC taxpayers money and DeBlasio has to get ultimate approval from MSNBC.

Most all of them are above 95%, the herd immunity level.

Pretty good summary:

pretending this is the fault of "illegal immigrants" is pure and simple political opportunism, pandering and scapegoating by people who should know better and probably do.

Yeah....

Updated info from the CDC:
Quote:
Among the 110 California patients, 49 (45%) were unvaccinated; five (5%) had 1 dose of measles-containing vaccine, seven (6%) had 2 doses, one (1%) had 3 doses, 47 (43%) had unknown or undocumented vaccination status, and one (1%) had immunoglobulin G seropositivity documented, which indicates prior vaccination or measles infection at an undetermined time. Twelve of the unvaccinated patients were infants too young to be vaccinated. Among the 37 remaining vaccine-eligible patients, 28 (67%) were intentionally unvaccinated because of personal beliefs, and one was on an alternative plan for vaccination. Among the 28 intentionally unvaccinated patients, 18 were children (aged <18 years), and 10 were adults. Patients range in age from 6 weeks to 70 years; the median age is 22 years. Among the 84 patients with known hospitalization status, 17 (20%) were hospitalized.

So of the 110 infections, only 18 were intentionally unvaccinated kids while 47 had "unknown or undocumented" vaccination status.
