    Be careful who you mess with
    Some people you just don't want to mess Here is the Happy New Year story of the year
    so far! (And a good reason to make sure ALL boxes
    are labeled!)
    Just when you think there's no
    justice...A news article from a Florida Newspaper:

    "When Nathan Radlich's house was burgled,
    thieves left his TV, his VCR, and even his watch.
    What they did take was "a generic white cardboard
    box filled with grayish-white powder." (That, at
    least, is the way the police described it.) A
    spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that
    it "looked similar to cocaine" and they thought
    they'd hit the big time.

    But later Nathan stood in front of the TV
    cameras and pleaded with the burglars: "Please
    return the cremated remains of my sister Gertrude. She died three years ago."

    Well, the next morning, the bullet-riddled
    corpse of a drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was
    found on Nathan's doorstep. The cardboard box was
    there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained.
    And there was this note: "Hoochie sold us the bogus
    blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your
    sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day
