Schroedinger's Bomb

All Through The Southland, CA

Bombs aren't just for terrorists, anymore. Seems they work really well for robbing banks, too.

Two men have knocked over six different banks from Santa Monica to Fountain Valley since June armed with a black bag in which they claim is a bomb. Is there? Maybe. Maybe not. Unless someone calls their bluff and they either run away or set it off we don't know. And nobody seems in much of a hurry to find out.

Interestingly, they haven't done it together, but have traded off, one hitting four banks and the other hitting three, one of which was the same as the first guy.

Now they could be working together, but I like to think it's some meth addled bet to see who can go the longest without getting caught. With any luck they'll shoot each other over bottles of Stoli in a Motel 6 in Lancaster and we can just pick up the pieces later. More likely the cops will find these guys at a gas station on an anonymous tip. Or better yet, if a dye pack goes off in their car.

Either way, the Feds would like a hand. So if you know the gentlemen and want to rat them out because you owe them money, call the FBI at (888) CANT HIDE (Can't hide? Really? You couldn't come up with anything better than that?), or (310) 477-6565.

No doubt when they're finally caught it'll turn out to be a cat in the bag. Which they then will let out. Of the bag.

Oy, I need me some coffee.
