Re: LA Fitness, 25352 Woodward Avenue, March 29: Again, another dummy who leaves his wallet in an UNLOCKED CAR. I only hope and pray these fools are hugely inconvenienced.

How come PATCHY ain't reporting on this: man accused of attacking Birmingham cab driver-faces several charges including assault, battery, possession of stolen credit card after night at Birmingham's Corner Bar. No doubt it's some "hood" person originally from the "D" or some Chaldean.

How come PATCHY ain't reporting on this: ROYAL OAK, Mich. - "Police in Royal Oak responded to a call Wednesday of one dog attacking another. This happened on the city's south side on Dallas Street. Officers said a pit bull-shepherd mix jumped a fence and attacked a Chihuahua in a neighbor's yard, killing the smaller dog." This is why all pit bulls need to be euthanized or shot or both.
