Seattle Ferry Heist Stuns Easily-Amazed Town

"Unbelievable, like something out of a movie," says the reporter covering the story of the homeless man who took a ferry for a joy ride in Seattle, which either says something about the shocking level of skepticism in the Emerald City or the low quality of film they get out west. Anyway, I woke up this morning thinking about the phrase "looky-loo," wondering if anyone used it anymore. I guess people do! Life's funny like that sometimes.

Ahem. Emerald city. And I think we're just more surprised that anyone could muster up this much energy.

@Brunhilde Grrr, as soon as we can get someone in here to take my place I am totally firing myself. Fixed, thanks.

"thinking about the phrase 'looky-lou,' wondering if anyone used it anymore": Well, Donald Fagen used it on his album "Sunken condos" last year…in a song set during Prohibition. So yeah, it's a bit archaic.
