Leading Off (2/4/10): The Happy Endings Edition

1. Hey, Tim, ask and you shall receive. Yesterday, you were complaining about the lame actions taken by a Cowboy to be arrested. Is Deon Anderson allegedly pulling a loaded gun on someone in a parking lot more along the lines of the behavior you’d expect? See, this is a happy ending because Tim got what he wanted.

2. This family hates the rain. Why? Because every time it rains, their house begins to slip. Not only have trees and their backyard disappeared, but so has their desk. The happy ending here is that they get to live in a hotel for a little bit! And they get to buy a new desk! (I don’t really understand why the desk was in the backyard. But I don’t have a backyard, so I guess I don’t really know what goes in one.) Oh, but wait, their insurance company refuses to cover the losses. The happy ending here may be a bit forced.

3.  And finally here’s a heartwarming story with a less-contrived happy ending. Andre Kelly was laid off from his job as a college instructor. When he couldn’t make payments on his loan, his car was repossessed. Inside his car was his mother’s ashes. Truck driver Nick Lyons found the ashes, contacted Fort Worth police department, which then tracked down Kelly. He’ll get the ashes back today. And they all lived happily ever after. Well. You know what I mean.
