Clever Tactic

Police in Oak Ridge, Tenn., are investigating a coordinated robbery of a market. The first robber went in and got the clerk’s attention by putting $2 on the counter. Then his partner dashed in with a gun and demanded money. The clerk complied — by handing over the $2 the first robber put on the counter. Apparently satisfied, the men then ran. Investigators have no suspects yet. (RC/Oak Ridger) ...But it’s the police’s job to know everyone in town who’s that stupid.
