This should be beneath the dignity of the Paechtree Corners "Patch". One more subject line from the "patch" with "wierd Police News" and I will "spam" this publication. Why not put the Simpson acheivement in the subject line? Peachtree Corners sales inf? Patriots Day? If you want to be a tabloid, procede, but it will not continue to hit my inbox.

While the impatient driver flashing the gun perhaps should have been an inpatient in a psychiatric facility because he was mad, since he was in his truck it would have been difficult for him to be inpatient when he was impatient. Please forgive my impulse to invoke attention to the incongruity instead of remaining inconversable.
