two icons fall in one week (?)

These days it seems that our "heroes" and public figures are too often caught in some sort of scandal. Athletes like Tiger Woods and politicians like John Edwards have disappointed the public with their behavior.

This week, more bad news came in two separate and unrelated news stories:

Robin Hood charged with identity theft.

Ronald McDonald arrested for pot.

Sad, but true.

This week, Robin Hood, 34, was caught trying to shoplift some items from a store in Denver, CO. At that time, police also found a wallet that Robin had used to produce false identification. (That is Robin in the photograph.)

On Monday, 44-year-old Ronald McDonald of Iowa City was arrested for possession and delivery of marajuana after neighbors reported a "strong odor" coming from his residence... and it wasn't the smell of hamburgers.

To prevent some sort of weird lawsuit for this post, let it be known that the Ronald McDonald of Iowa may be a clown of sorts but not the one that represents McDonald's Hamburgers.
