Friday Hound Blogging

The mark of any good business is diversification. You don't want all of your eggs in the same basket like say...oh...GM (motto: Buy our cars dammit). Even the overlords have figured out that if people with more than a third grade education can't be exploited by dog exploitation, they might be exploited by something else, like slots, or three card monty. But truly enterprising overlords have developed their own alternative income stream by selling drugs.

It worked so well in theory. High markup, low overhead, solid customer base. What could go wrong? Oh, that.

The New Hampshire-based ringleader of a major drug trafficking operation has pleaded guilty to charges he conspired to sell oxycodone and to launder money. Randall Noe faces up to 20 years in prison.

Noe and the other defendants laundered their money by gambling at the former Lakes Region Greyhound Park. "Well, the track people were our best customers," Noe told authorities. "It only made sense to clean the money there. Where else would paying for everything with one dollar bills not draw suspicion?"

True. If only he hadn't bought the new Mercedes with one dollar bills, right Jane?

Jane is gentle, confident, curious, friendly, and loving. She likes to give kisses. She is affectionate and likes to be the foster mom’s shadow. She plays with toys and likes to collect them. She likes to eat the stuffing if not monitored. She acts like “silly girl” and will roll on her back for attention. She likes to lay next the other grey and will inch over until she is touching her. She likes to look at the greyhound calendar in the home and wonders why the dog in the picture does not move. She likes to lean against you.
