Drive through ser­vice - Hur­ri­cane Irene is dev­as­tat­ing in itself but Imag­ine how urri­can Irene Michelle Brown and her daugh­ter felt as they were watch­ing TV and they heard a huge crash. Her son ran in and deliv­ered the news: “He said, ‘Momma, there’s a truck in the ceil­ing!’” And indeed there was.  An SUV crashed into the attic of Brown’s Kansas City home! When police arrived, there were three peo­ple still inside the SUV, who were taken to the hos­pi­tal with minor injuries.  Police are guess­ing that the vehi­cle must have been going so fast that when it veered off the road Brown’s front lawn acted like a ramp, send­ing the car hurtling through the air.

His friend then scooped up as much earth as he could carry, and he and Gein divvied it up into small bags which they’re now sell­ing for 25 bucks a pop. In the under­state­ment of the week, Gein said, “We live in a sick world.”
