    Did this really happen ?

    When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized recently, thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even left his Rolex watch.

    What they did take, however, was a generic white cardboard box filled with a grayish-white powder. (That's the way the police report described it.) A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that it looked similar to high-grade cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time.


    Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars. "Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago."


    The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The cardboard box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. Scotch taped to the box was this note which said: Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day.

    To preserve liberty,it is essential that the whole of the people always possess arms and be taught alike,especially when young,how to use them.

    Has liberty and human life become worthless?




    Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    Snopes is a great source for the truth. There was no body or note (or cremains) left on the stoop, so while the saying truth is stranger than fiction is often true this one is a tie.
