A 70-year-old man charged with robbing a Kansas City, Kan., bank said he did it because he preferred a jail cell over living with his wife.

Lawrence John Ripple is charged in federal court with the Friday afternoon robbery of the Bank of Labor at 756 Minnesota Ave.

According to court documents, Ripple handed a teller a note that read, “I have a gun, give me money.”

The teller complied.

But instead of fleeing, Ripple took the money and then took a seat in the bank lobby, according to the documents.

When a bank security guard approached him, Ripple told the guard, “I’m the guy you’re looking for.”

    Better off in jail? Wow, she must really be a bitch. Or he likes to play ‘drop the soap’ and she won’t play.

    All that news and more from the Repug capitol of the Midwest, Kansas.

    Spinach is good for you except that it has lots of purines which are a uric acid precursor. So too much purines might be causing my right foot swelling.

    Just 12 minutes up the hill to the Hillside Cafe.

      After dinner the same route as yesterday except for a 4 minute round trip detour to a toilet. Even so only 112 minutes so I must have sped up Grimes Way and then the hill up to the CUB.

      The birds were still wheeling at the end of Grimes Way. But this time I started them out of a tree hard by the path. The tree, the same species as the ones on the east side of Terre View Drive, seems to have small berries which the birds eat and are then full of energy for flock flying in loops and curls. Eventually they all headed over to the organic farm, so out of sight.

      Day 5: 226+112=338 minutes and my feet are not very noticeable.
