Behind the Headlines (and off to the side as well)

I’m not going to reprint the article here; the real impact is in its title. Here is that title, right off the AP news wire: Police arrest nude man stuck in chimney.
I will only add that he was at his stepmother’s house and he was arrested on “suspicion of being under the influence of drugs.” Beyond that, I think we should grant the man his privacy and hope that he gets some help to work out his little problem. Or that he gets a proper textbook on how to be a chimney sweep. Maybe he saw a different version of Mary Poppins than I did . . .
