Yet Another winner of the Darwin Award 

The San Jose Mercury News reports:

Kern County sheriff's deputies said they've never seen a less cagey suspect.

James Paul Egan allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven at gunpoint, taking care to conceal his identity by covering his face with a blue bandanna, and wearing a knit hat and gloves.

Then he ran into the backyard of a nearby house, and threw out all the allegedly incriminating articles: the bandanna, the gloves, the hat, a .357-caliber Magnum handgun, and the jacket he'd been wearing - with his county jail property identification card in the pocket.

The card had his photograph, date of birth and jail booking number.

Of course, if the criminal had left his ID with Bob Novak, he'd be on the loose today!

Say, isn't it great that Ashcroft recused himself from The Plame Affair—after giving the White House a 24 hour heads-up so they could shred the evidence, after Bush said (i.e., dictated) that the criminal would never be caught, and after the investigators started at the top, presumably to get their marching orders... Rule of law, my Aunt Fanny.
