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!”

Controversial Contractors for Trump’s highly-criticized $3 billion food aid program hire lobbyist to tout their work
Companies receiving taxpayer dollars as part of President Donald Trump’s signature food aid program hired a longtime lobbyist to push back on criticism that the government is relying on unqualified contractors, such as an event planner.
“We’re working to take the stories of the impact this is having on farmers, processors, distributors and end users and making sure some positive aspects of the program, from both the economic and social standpoints, are out there too,” said the lobbyist and industry consultant, Dale Apley, who reached out to ProPublica on behalf of the contractors. “It’s not all just certain stories about certain companies that maybe shouldn’t have been awarded contracts.”

First daughter and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump "urged" her father to take part in a controversial photo-op with a Bible according to a new report from The New York Times.
"After a weekend of protests that led all the way to his own front yard and forced him to briefly retreat to a bunker beneath the White House, President Trump arrived in the Oval Office on Monday agitated over the television images, annoyed that anyone would think he was hiding and eager for action," the newspaper reported.
