There’s Always Next Century

Haha.

Days before a special ceremony in conjunction with this year’s 100th anniversary of Oakland’s Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, masons disinterred the copper time capsule sealed inside the building’s 700 pound cornerstone. On Saturday, museum officials shared the treasures inside with the public:

Eleven cents in change, two lead soldiers, a tattered silk flag, a black pile of wet news pulp, Confederate currency and photographs all rotted into a square of mush.

“I felt like the Geraldo Rivera of Soldiers & Sailors, and the cornerstone was Al Capone’s vault,” said museum president Ron Gancas, referring to the TV journalist’s anti-climactic opening of Capone’s empty, secret vault in 1986.

Well that has to suck. Bury some stuff for 100 years and it turns to mush.

Will The Evidence Blow Up For The Prosecution?

leave a comment »

I remember hearing about this case when it happened. They actually found somebody?

A western Pennsylvania woman accused of masterminding a bank robbery plot that ended with a pizza deliveryman being killed by a bomb locked around his neck will be in court Monday to ask a judge to suppress evidence in the case.

Sixty-one-year-old Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong is scheduled to go on trial Oct. 12 before U.S. District Judge Sean McLaughlin. She had sought to move the trial out of Erie, citing intense publicity, but the judge ruled that she generated much of the publicity herself.

Diehl-Armstrong has said she had no role in the plot that ended in the bombing death of Brian Wells in Summit Township on Aug. 28, 2003. She says she is being framed.

The Erie Times-News says a pretrial report filed last week indicates that the defense might be planning to argue that mental illness rendered her unable to participate in such a plot.

So an alleged crazy person masterminded all that? Hmmm…
