Just for the record: this happened in Seattle, but I was at work.

This was *not* me; I was at the office. Honest.

Amazing what the price of gasoline is leading to. An armed porn thief making his getaway on a bicycle with a messenger bag.

Maybe it's the price of porn magazines that led to this?

I was surprised at how expensive the stuff was. Eight magazines worth $96? No wonder the guy stole it at gunpoint. What the heck does a Playboy cost these days?

I started to edit that after I posted it. I guess you need an internet connection too.

Can we trust you, though? There are a lot of seedy characters in the PNW (I should know, I am one of them ).
