You know it's a bad day when ...
---leads the police on a merry chase, then climbs up on the roof and pelts them with tiles
---steals a computer which photographs him in his car and sends pictures to the owner
---posts a threat to the chief of police on Craigslist over a traffic ticket
Diamonds aren't the only thing that lasts forever. Greenburgh, New York thinks traffic tickets do. A new court administrator found thousands of open tickets, some from the 1990s. The town is trying to collect on those from issued in 2000 and later.
