Ask a Silly Question

A man in DeKalb County, Ga., who asked not to be named was “sleeping in front my TV” at 5:00 a.m. when “a man poured through the door, locked the door behind him and said ‘call the police, call the police!’” The intruder was only wearing boxer shorts and bleeding, the homeowner said. Once officers arrived, he said, “the man took forever to settle down and give some kind of coherent story, and it’s still not very coherent.” So did the police tell him anything? “They said to lock my door.” (RC/Atlanta Journal-Constitution) ...Wrong! Boxer man locked it behind him, remember?
