Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...

"This must be just like livin' in paradise...

It seems as though son-of-a-jackal from the post below may be busier than we previously thought. This is the front-page headline from the local newspaper the other day:

"Microtassista Impazzito Massacra il Passeggero!"

That means "Crazed Taxi Driver Massacres Passenger." No, really. Apparently the customer was unpleasantly surprised by the request of 40 euro from the taxi driver for the 10 minute ride. They haggled, settled on 30, and the passenger asked for a receipt. By this time, the passenger was outside of the car communicating through the window. The driver closed the window on his arm and proceeded to drag him about 200 meters. The man survived with broken bones and facial lacerations. Wow.

Of course I can't say for sure that it was the same driver, but I bet they have the same mamma.

...And I don't wanna go ho-ome...da-da-dada...paradise...just like paradise..."

My suspicion is that the taxi driver was deeply troubled by the firing of Tom Cruise and could no longer supress his anger. Umm, either that or it's gotta be the strong coffee over there.
Thx for the great blog Tracie!
