Sun Rises In East, Sets In West

Headlines that make you stand up and go "whoa": Well, not really.

Fox 26 reported on a Houstonian who got picked up in Thailand for his habit of diddling young children.

The headline? "Captured Fugitive Led Secret Life."

Nooooo shit. We're just shocked the guy chose not to follow what is apparently the standard fugitive modus operandi, which is to walk around wearing a t-shirt emblazoned "Arrest Me, Pigs," with his FBI case number underneath.

In case the headline wasn't obvious enough, there was the lede: "An accused sexual predator from Harris County led a secret life while avoiding capture for three years."

Damn....If it wasn't for that whole "secret life" thing, they might have caught him a whole lot sooner.
