Throw Away The Key

In the summertime, the mountains around here become infested with college-age badasses who intend to save the planet (in our case from coal mining and tree harvesting) and destroy our way of life, before they all have to go back to school in the Fall and take up their studies of accounting once again.

Elartrice Ingram, 21, was charged with nine counts of attempted first-degree murder, police said. The attack apparently stemmed from a work dispute, investigators said. (
