Okaaaay ...

One more before I run.

The area where I live on Long Island is a crazy sort of place. We're very diverse, you can hear thirty languages walking down my street, and we have our share (maybe more than our share, and we talk about Californians) of nuts. To wit:

A man wearing a dress, make-up and a blonde wig robbed a Citibank in Central Islip Thursday -- one of two separate bank heists within three hours in Suffolk County, the police said.

Walking calmly into the store, the heavyset man wearing the disguise waited in line and then handed the teller a note demanding cash. He didn't threaten to use a gun and only spoke once, telling her to hurry up, the detectives said. With the cash in hand, the man, who weighs about 220 pounds and stands roughly 5 feet, 8 inches tall fled on foot at about 9:39 a.m.


Bank robbing has become a sport here, and the robbers are getting more creative when trying to outwit the surveillance cameras. They'll get him eventually, but how much you want to bet the local news will name him the 'Drag Queen Bandit' before his 'career' is over?
