We occasionally miss absurity in the news, but we have “[email protected]”:mailto:[email protected] for you to tell us what was left out. Some of you make this too easy for us. One ardent and loyal reader sent this in:

I know it isn’t fashionable for you guys to be reading the Berkeley Daily Planet, but imagine my surprise while skimming it waiting for BART to see Zachary “Batshit Crazy” RunningWolf threaten UCPD with violence after his most recent arrest.
