Wednesday night line

Posted By on Wed, Sep 5, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Whew. Busy day. Now it's your turn. Finishing up:

* MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: This story mentions hackers, but burglars would be the more proper term if the account is true. The story goes that somebody has gotten hold of Mitt Romney's income tax returns and is extorting the Romney camp for money to prevent their release. This could be true, false or a diabolical hoax. But it's out there. More here.

OOPS. I picked up an item from Twitter or somewhere about death of Bob Denver, the actor who played Gilligan. Don't know where that came from. It was old news, which popped back up through the magic of the innertubes. How quickly we forget just about everything these days.

* LAST PERSON OUT OF PINE BLUFF ... A reliable source reports that Pine Bluff Mayor Carl Redus sued today to stop the November mayoral election. He contends state law requires the election be in non-presidential years now that the city's population has dropped below 50,000.
