"He had maps, he had a certain amount of tools, he had bug repellent, he had wipes, he had Pop-Tarts."

"he had bug repellent"

Nervous ticks.

Pop Tarts are a marker for antisocial behavior.

He had a pepper shaker to put off the dogs.

Wipes? Thank god he was able to maintain basic hygiene during the manhunt.

I hope they were blueberry Pop-Tarts because we should all be getting enough antioxidants in our diet.

Notice Cuomo wanted his name in the papers. Wonder if he'll be at the press conference that reveals the guard supported Heroin ring in the prison.

PS: June is still Black Fly season up there. You'd be insane in 24 hours without netting and bug spray.

Our camp is SW. New Yorker's call their lake places camps. Back from the days when Robber Barons had a "place" on 5th Ave, a "Camp" at Saranac. and a "cottage" at Newport... Each with a full time staff...

"I thought he was kind of well-kept for somebody who's been living in the woods for 20-some odd days."

Said the coroner. About the other one, Matt. The dead one.

Live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse.

So if your plan is to escape, ditch the fat old drunk pot-head right away, even if he does use his sexual charms and artistic abilities to get you the stuff you need to break out.

Should have had a back-up plan for a second get-away car.

I'm surprised they could not or did not steal a car immediately after discovering that the weak-minded attention-starved guard foiled their plan by coming to her senses. She was so witless for so long, they never saw that coming.

The fugitive with Pop-Tarts somehow reminds me of this lyric:

"You oughta know not to stand by the window
Somebody might see you up there
I got some groceries, some peanut butter
To last a couple of days"

Pop tarts was a better choice than Skittles. Just ask Trayvon Martin how that worked out.

The greatness of Cuomo is becoming more and more apparent. He has studied Chuck Schumer closely, and has surpassed him.
