I have had four different people contact me in some way about this, as compared to the average of zero, even on a big Fayette County news day. And the fact that people now hear Fayette County news, think of me, and anticipate a post is pretty awesome in a weird way. I can only hope that I live up to what are apparently great expectations for this post.
I'll be honest. My first reaction was a total lack of a reaction. I probably should've been surprised, and on some minuscule level I was, but just not enough. Almost like it's so ridiculous that it's not that ridiculous, so bad it's good, etc., to the point that I once again have to wonder if this is for real or if people are trying to make the news now, especially since something similar happened before in Scottdale (which, as a reminder, isn't in Fayette County). This even made CNN.
In case you haven't heard - and if you haven't then you probably haven't seen any newspaper, TV, or form of social media - a man dressed as a ninja damaged 11 cars and tried to stab a man. With a sword. And the man he tried to stab had a gun. Literally bringing a knife to a gun fight. Some cliches are true. But they're also cliches, so they suck.
The victim says that Ninja Man is going to get caught. "We have your blood; we have your fingerprints. You were a dumb criminal." Hey, that sounds kind of familiar...
It made Kiss, of course.
He's still out there.
