Wednesday night, a truck in the KIRO Radio station lot was accosted by a would-be prowler. It didn’t go well.
In a video posted on the station’s video page, the attempted burglar is shown trying to break the windows of the station itself. When that didn’t work, he took to the truck.
“It’s an open parking lot, 11:09 p..m.,” begins KIRO Radio’s John Curley. “There’s a gentleman, who’s got himself a mop and a mop handle and he’s pointing it toward a window of a pick-up truck. He’s got his stance, shoulder-length apart. And he bangs the mop at the top of the window! He hits and resets. He’s got his feet now, moving apart, looking to the right, check to make sure no one is coming. And he now, positions the mop again.”
This went on for several moments as the man repeatedly tried to break the truck’s window with the end of the mop. He even goes so far as to take a running start with the mop toward the truck window.
“Now remember, the dirty part of the mop is under his arm,” Curley said at one point.
Ultimately, the man gave up on the truck and turned toward trying to break into the station.
“He’s starting to move away form the car and he gets a second plan,” Curley said. “This time he starts to climb up onto the rooftop. He still has the mop in his left hand and now he starts to think about whether or not he wants to climb up. He puts the right foot on top of the wall. Here he comes! And he falls off! Oh my gosh! Somebody get the salami and cream-cheese and rub it all over his face! He’s unconscious! On the ground! With the mop! That’s the story!”

‘I’ve heard enough’: Representative refuses to ask Lewandowski questions because it’s giving him ‘a platform’
In a brief moment of the Corey Lewandowski hearing Tuesday, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) refused to allow the top Trump advisor any more time to promote himself or his political campaign.
She probed whether President Donald Trump had ever promised to pardon Lewandowski, which he refused to answer.
"The president did indicate that he’s going to support your Senate campaign. Didn’t he?" Scanlon asked. But Lewandowski said he wasn't sure.
"Okay. Well, I just want to know for the record when Mr. Lewandowski asked for the committee to give him a little break an hour and a half, two hours ago, he took the time during that recess to launch his Senate campaign website with a tweet," she continued. "And I think that fact says an awful lot about the witness’ motivation to appear here today and I’ve heard enough. I yield back."
Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark
Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.
It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.
Black carbon from air pollution found in placentas: study
Black carbon particles typically emitted by vehicle exhaust and coal-fired power plants have been detected on the foetus-facing side of placentas, researchers said Tuesday.
The concentration of particles was highest in the placentas of women most exposed to airborn pollutants in their daily life, according to a study in Nature Communications.
"Our study provides compelling evidence for the presence of black carbon particles originating from air pollution in human placenta," the authors said.
The findings, they added, offer a "plausible explanation for the detrimental health effects of pollution from early life onwards."
