Leija's mother says he also happened to be in the right place at the right time less than a year ago, and rescued children from another fire.

What a lucky coincidence for the children, not so lucky for all the property owners.

...everybody knew where my whereabouts were at

Where at were his whereabouts just before his whereabout showed up whereabout the fire was?
 
2003-05-01 12:24:23 PM  
Where my whereabouts is at?
 
2003-05-01 12:24:56 PM  
I keep my whereabouts in the closet. That way I'll be sure to not lose them.

"They're trying to say I'm a suspect after what I done."

What, set the fire or "heroically" rescuing some kids?

Please cross-reference the Oxford English Dictionary thread.

While we may know where is whereabouts are at, do we have any idea what condition his condition was in? And can someone please tell me who did that song?

Hmmmm...a touch of a coinkydink him rescuing not one but TWO different sets of children out of TWO different towering infernoes?!!? I scored 11 on the "liberal" test but even I am having a hard time seeing these as mere coincidences.

He ran into the building he set on fire because he dropped some of his BLING-BLING on the floor.

The headline writers are getting lazy. Where is the manditory "English grammar surrenders"?

"Everybody knew where my whereabouts were at"

ending a sentence with a preposition.
GUILTY!

It's nice that "Everybody knew where my whereabouts were at" but it would have been nice for the article to tell us, the gentle reader, what his alibi was.
 
2003-05-01 02:11:02 PM  
This kind of reminds me of Murder She Wrote. No matter where that women went, someone was murdered. Although those cops were stupid and let her solve the crime to be the hero. The truth is that she did it and framed everyone else. In this case, he did it and became the hero and is using it as the alibiagain

Unbelievable! I was reading down the thread at work whilst listening to my favorite 80's hits and as I read your post (Talking Heads quote) the song started...(It means absolutely nothing, but it was hellacool!)

/really bored today

Raekwon:

"ending a sentence with a preposition."

You should not criticize people for using bad grammar when you can't even form a sentence yourself.

Also, can we please stop making fun of people who were obviously educated by the U.S. public school system? It is unpatriotic.

I was going to quote the same song.
It is by Kenny Rogers (Kenny Rogers and the first edition)
Yes the same Kenny Rogers that sang the Gambler, and Coward of the County.

Before Kenny Rogers was a country singer, he tried doing some psychedlic pop stuff.

"we threw gasoline on the fire so now we have no eyebrows and nubs for arms."

2003-05-01 02:23:57 PM  
Thanks all! I'll just get The Big Lebowski soundtrack. Now let's go back to making fun of the asshat.

Oops, almost forgot: A preposition is a horrible thing to end a sentence with. (and no, don't you dare mention grammar and usage books! Why would you bring that thing that I hate to be read to out of up for?)

"Lejia was arrested for violating his probation on an old burglary conviction as a police officer had recognized him as being wanted for a probation violation in an unrelated burglary case."

Seems that he also wrote this story. Why couldn't they just say "Lejia was arrested after a police officer recognized him as being wanted for a probation violation in an unrelated burglary case." ??
