Today's Metro Column

But what's more compelling to me is the fact that, a mere 14-ish years out of college, I finally achieved my photo in a jaundice hue. You see, jaundice was a favorite word around the college paper and, oh, well, forget it, it's not funny unless you were there. And if you were there, you know why.

As a public service though, here's the text of the FBI's press release about the bank robbery the column was hinged upon:
The FBI and the Philadelphia Police Department are seeking the public's assistance to identify and locate the subjects responsible for the robbery of the Citizen’s Bank branch located at 7248 Rising Sun Avenue in Philadelphia on Friday, September 11, 2009.

At approximately 9:05 AM, two unidentified males entered the branch and made threatening demands to the tellers and customers inside the bank. The subjects are described as black males in their 20's, average height and medium build, the first wearing a dark-colored ‘Phillies’ logo baseball cap, sunglasses, a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue bandana, dark pants white sneakers, and carrying an umbrella. The second subject was wearing a light-colored baseball cap, dark mask or bandana, a red hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, dark-colored sneakers, and appeared to have tape on his fingertips. It is possible that a third subject waited outside the door of the bank during the robbery.

After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the subject fled on foot in an unknown direction. There were no injuries.

Four photographs from the bank's security cameras are attached to this email. These subjects are considered armed and dangerous, and anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Philadelphia Police Department. There may be a reward for information leading to the identification and apprehension of these subjects. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
