Rock of rages

Maybe we should have kept the parks closed: Authorities are considering charges against a Boy Scout leader who purposely knocked over an ancient rock formation, one of thousands in the Utah desert, claiming it was loose and was dangerous. “This is about saving lives,” said a friend who shot video of the vandalism, “one rock at a time.”

If he’s really interested in turning big rocks into smaller rocks, we have a sentence to recommend to the judge.

Go ahead, pile the dirty dishes in the sink: Following a similar announcement by Macy’s, J.C. Penney says it will open most of its 1,100 stores Thanksgiving evening and remain open until the following evening for holiday shoppers.

That’s fine by us. Between those watching football and those hunting for holiday bargains, that’s going to leave an awful lot of pumpkin pie unguarded.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1982, automaker John Z. DeLorean was arrested by federal agents and accused of conspiring to sell $24 million of cocaine to salvage his business.

DeLorean beat the charges by setting the flux capacitor in one of his cars to the day before the arrest and going back in time to not fall for the sting.
