TRUE STORY: A Leprechaun-dressed Bank Robber

The leprechauns are really getting bold and out of hand in the modern age. Used to be they'd just guard the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Now they go robbing banks to load up their pots. Boy, times have changed. Just read this story from the Tennessean Newspaper (Nashville's newspaper) today:

Leprechaun-dressed bank robber tied to Santa-dressed heist
By Eric Miller • GANNETT TENNESSEE • March 19, 2010

GALLATIN — The man shot and killed after robbing a Gallatin bank dressed as a leprechaun on St.
Patrick's Day is the same man who robbed a Hermitage bank dressed as Santa three days before
Christmas, investigators say.
Two men robbed First State Bank on Nashville Pike at lunchtime Wednesday, firing at police during a chase down busy city streets to a field behind a subdivision where they were killed in a gun battle with officers.
David Christopher Cotton of Wildwood Valley Road in Brentwood was identified as the man in the leprechaun suit, and Jonathan Ryan Skinner was identified as the driver of the getaway vehicle.
Skinner was a student at Western Kentucky University.
Investigators say Skinner was shot by officers; they believe Cotton killed himself but are waiting for an autopsy to verify that.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
