Bargain Table

Two men both wanted to be first to a residential yard sale in Sonora, Calif., according to the resulting arrest report by the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department. Jon Joslin, 70, was apparently upset that Joseph Brown, 64, was ahead of him in the driveway, and allegedly tried to trip Brown — twice. Brown pushed Joslin away, and Joslin grabbed a 5-pound cast-iron cornbread pan from a table and whacked Brown over the head with it, deputies say. Joslin was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. (RC/Sacramento Bee) ...Actually, it’s not “deadly” unless there’s cornbread in it.
