Investigative Journalism: The Saga of the Mystery Bicycle

Some hard-hitting stuff.

And I thought the local news here was slow. . . .

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I remember when I worked at a Fortune 100 company, when I came in, there was this one bike in the rack, and it looked like it wasn't touched in years... a Huffy, tires flat, just leaning on the ground, and it stayed untouched for the whole time I worked there. Yes, its an X-Mart bike, but it could have been given to Goodwill or the Salvation army rather than just take up space on a rack.

At least I was able to quickly figure out what was up with this abandoned bike, but it's a sad story:
