The Chase

Anyone catch that car chase in Houston on Friday? A 50-something guy robbed a dry cleaner and then fled in a white pickup truck (shades of O.J.), after which he led police on a chase for over two hours, and the whole thing was shown on CNN Headline News. (It's not like there's a war going on in the Middle East, or anything like that).

Anyway, Kenneth Ray Pool maneuvered all over highways, streets, and dirt roads, sometimes into oncoming traffic, and at one point he even drove through a golf course. He eventually drove into a creek, at which point Becca and I left our hotel to attend Bill's wedding. I later read that he had surrendered.

Intriguing ... first, Kenneth Lay of Houston "dies." Then Kenneth Ray (Pool) of Houston is desparate to escape capture. Coincidence? I THINK NOT!!
