Mayor Stodola's car stolen

Posted By on Sat, Jun 5, 2010 at 2:58 PM

One of our readers broke the news first of the theft of Mayor Mark Stodola's Ford Explorer from outside Copper Grill, where he was dining.

A City Hall insider wonders (and I've sent the mayor a question) if Stodola was following his long habit of not carrying his car keys. Instead, he often places them atop his left front tire. That's kind of like leaving your iPod or purse on the seat of your car. Mighty tempting.


UPDATE: The mayor didn't respond to our note, but he told the Democrat-Gazette yesterday that, while he'd left his keys in the car, he had recently stopped his practice of placing them atop the front wheel.

For the record, oldmaninthesea first reported this theft, subject of a Sunday page one story in D-G, at 9:34 p.m. Friday night on our open line.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
