Ridiculous Headline of the Day

From the Boston Globe (via the Associated Press):

High prices force man to take gas

Free will? Personal responsibility? Never heard of 'em.

Authorities say a man came up with an unusual way to combat high gasoline prices: Filling about a dozen containers with gas from his former workplace after hours.

Andrew Otten, 44, was charged with misdemeanor theft after a sheriff's deputy said he found containers with about 56 gallons of gas in Otten's sport utility vehicle.

You see? It's not his fault!

The high gas prices FORCED him to steal the gas from his former employer. He's the real victim here. Just ask Patrick "The Ambien made me do it" Kennedy. He'll vouch for the guy.
