As Ms. K. likes to say, gas stations and convenience stores are like watering holes on the Serengeti for criminals (or something like that).
On Wednesday, November 22, somebody called the police on a suspicious looking young deer loitering outside the Casey’s General Story (famous for pizza). Probably asking for money or for someone to buy some beer.
The police responded less brutally than the Carbondale police department handling an emu, but still, when the deer gave them a little lip, they brutally assaulted the innocent piece of Bambiana.
The question on my mind, though, is who called the police on a wayward deer?
The answer, I think, is the manager of the Casey’s, who wanted to get free publicity for the fact that he or she is currently hiring.
It’s only the Black Friday deals that have kept the protesters otherwise occupied than to organize marches in Ozark.
