Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Errant emu attacks El Paso deputies (11:15 a.m.) - Las Cruces Sun-News: "EL PASO — An emu on the loose in El Paso snarled rush hour traffic near Interstate 10 on Tuesday morning and attacked deputies trying to restrain it, according to a release from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded at 6:45 a.m. to a report of an ostrich in the roadway in the area of I-10 and Horizon, only to find that the wayward bird was actually an emu."

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

It's nice to see the cover of that book again. "Murder Most Fowl" happens to be my favorite Sheriff Dan Rhodes' novel. There is just something about having a murder victim floating down a river in a port-o-potty that I find remarkable.

Thanks, August, and would you believe that's one of the events that's based on an actual event?
