From the Orlando Sentinel:
An Orlando man faces two counts of exposure of sexual organs, accused of twice driving through the Lake Jesup toll plaza on State Road 417 with his pants pulled down and his genitals exposed.
Michael John McDonnell, 39, was arrested this morning at his residence. According to an arrest affidavit, he is a delivery driver for beer distributor Wayne Densch Inc. in Sanford.
Seminole County deputy sheriffs were called to the toll plaza in the early morning hours of last Wednesday after a toll collector went to hand a motorist change and saw that he was exposing himself. The toll collector told deputies the same thing happened Oct. 9 and at the time she warned him never to come through her lane like that again, Deputy Nelson Pitre wrote in the arrest report.
Maybe he was just trying to get a discount. After all, this particular toll is $2. Can’t blame a guy for tryin’, can ya’?
In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, I recently have been suffering from a bout of severe information overload. I’ve recently subscribed to feeds from Daily Kos, FiveThirtyEight.com, NPR Blogs: Vox Politics, The Orlando Sentinel and Central Florida News 13. I’ve got about 18 science-related feeds in my Google Reader plus many, many, many other blog feeds ranging from Legos to funny pictures. I spend more time parsing through my feeds than I do reading email. As far as email goes, I have a compulsion to not leave any unread items in my inbox. I must process them.
I think a confession is in order:
My name is CyberLizard and I am an information addict.
Whew, I feel so much better now that I got that off my chest! Now let’s see if I can actually bring myself to click “Delete” on any feeds. I think this blog will be much better if I can actually think and write my own thoughts.
