HOW DO YOU DEFINE LOSER? Oregon state minimum-security prison inmate
Jason Hayes, 29, was doing his assigned job when he noticed the guards
were looking the other way. "He just walked," a prison spokeswoman
says, making an escape. After walking for half an hour he passed by the
state Department of Corrections headquarters building in Salem. As it
happened, a DoC employee was getting into her car and noticed his
prison uniform. Her job: chasing down escaped fugitives. She confronted
Hayes and he ran, jumping over a barbed-wire-topped fence -- landing in
the middle of a training exercise for the police SWAT team. He was
quickly arrested. (Portland Oregonian) ..."Genius may have its
limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped." --Elbert Hubbard
(1856-1915), American author.
