Superthief

Joshua Paul Calhoun likes to take things...BIG things

Or maybe Joshua Paul Calhoun is the next legend of East Texas.

Over the July 4 weekend, while Calhoun was allegedly in Mexico, a wealthy couple flew into the Athens airport in a single-prop Cessna to stay the weekend at Cedar Creek Lake. Someone tried to steal their plane.

The unknown thief got away before anyone found the plane crashed into a ditch at the end of the runway. But in the rumor mill around the airport and the Athens courthouse, the escapade has grown into another tale of the Superthief. Even if he wasn't there.

The arrest of a rural plane thief made headlines at newspapers across the state.

can anyone actually look at this guys picture and not be convinced that there is something wrong with him? he is a poster boy for mental health reform. i'll say one thing in his defense, aside from the border agent's minor injuries, he didn't hurt anyone, unlike these punkass thugs that walk around with a gun shooting at anything for any reason

There must have been absolutely nothing else for the author to write about. The world is full of jokers like this. Does the clown Calhoun merit a story? Really?
