Can Anybody Account For Chick's Whereabouts At The Time Of The Incident?

White Trash Wednesday

This would have been last week's WTW story if I'd heard it in time, but enough excuses. Last Wednesday's Bob & Tom featured this story:

CHICK MCGEE: Gunfire and a 32-mile car chase around an outerbelt of a major Midwestern city last night put one man in the hospital and led to the arrests of two other people. One man waiting for a woman outside an adult club last night about seven o'clock when the woman showed up with another man; the chase was on. A guy in a sport-utility vehicle was in the parking lot waiting for a woman described as his ex-fiancee. She arrived in an Impala with the second man, and the Impala left the parking lot with the GMC in hot pursuit. State police got calls from motorists that the two vehicles were speeding in excess of 90MPH on the outerbelt. On the northwestern side of the city, shots were fired from the Impala; several rounds hit the GMC and one of those hit the GMC's driver in the thigh . . .
Chick has the first punch line:
. . . all of this over a stripper.

And Tom brings the one I was thinking of:

TOM GRISWOLD: Time to get back to the meth lab.

By the way, I think I know why Chick was reluctant to identify the location any more specifically than 'a major Midwestern city' - it happened in Indy!

According to the State Police, the trouble started at P.T.'s Showclub, 7916 Pendleton Pike. A man in a GMC sport utility vehicle was in the parking lot, waiting for a woman described as his ex-fiancee. She arrived in a Chevrolet Impala with the second man, and the Impala left the parking lot with the GMC in pursuit.

State Police then got calls from motorists that the two vehicles were speeding on I-465.

In the area of the 71st Street interchange on the Northwestside, shots were fired from the Impala. Several rounds hit the GMC, and one of those hit the GMC's driver in the thigh.

Thanks to Google Earth, we can put Chick's reluctance in perspective:

Ever since they were syndicated nationally, they avoid any mention of their location. Such a shame, since I remember when Chick had one of his early annual prostate exams in a car traveling on I-69. Not that I would have wanted to glance over to the next car to see THAT in progress, but how often do you see a celebrity?

I've noted the same thing too ( http://www.dangerouslogic.com/archive/000803.html ). But he still could have said 'Indianapolis' without saying, f'rinstance 'two miles down the road from our studios...'

And by the way, congratulations on the addition to the family! I don't know how I lost track of that. Hope all is well with the three of you.

Also, what URL should I use for the blogroll, blogspot or mchsi.com?

Thanks for the wishes. We are well (if not very well rested), and looking forward to Alex's first Christmas.

As for the other, the blogspot address is just the blog entries themselves, while the mchsi address has some fluff and my links with the blog in an iframe. Choose whichever suits your fancy.
