But How Was His Aim?
Before cops threw the book at him, Jakub Fik threw something unusual at them -- his penis.A story like that comes along once in a lifetime, and Herman was clearly up to the challenge. (The Sun-Times' web staff also managed a good line of sorts, too: The story's URL is http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-ouch17.html.)
We'll never know if the Chicago Tribune's Metro staff could have equaled it--or even if they could get the word "penis" in the paper--because apparently when a knife-wielding maniac smashes car windows on the north side, breaks into a house, cuts his penis off, and throws it at police officers, it is not newsworthy. Check for yourself.
As Mickey Kaus might say, too interesting.
