Seven Degrees from Normal

Two people, eighteen years of marriage, seven college degrees.

I would say that too

Now this is sad for a number of reasons, but you have to love the "I'm quoting an expert!" tone of the last line:

BELTON — University of Texas running back Ramonce Taylor was arrested early Sunday after Bell County sheriff's deputies found marijuana in a backpack in the rear of his vehicle, authorities said.

The Bell County sheriff's office said in a news release that a live .40-caliber round of ammunition also was found in the center console of the vehicle.

The sheriff first reported that deputies found more than 5 pounds of marijuana in Taylor's backpack, which would constitute a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in jail and $10,000 in fines.

If the marijuana is found to weigh more than 5 pounds, the charge will be upgraded. Law enforcement officials say 5 pounds of marijuana is much more than is commonly held for personal use.

Thank you, law enforcement officials!
