Yesterday, Ashland, Kentucky police had to call in firefighters with an aerial truck to pull a juvenile trapped for nine hours in the exhaust duct of El Rancho Grande restaurant. He apparently slid down the vent at 2am the night before and encountered a "T" at the bottom that was too small for his body. He is suspected of attempted burglary. According to the Daily Independent who spoke to the fire chief, the young man was "was respectful and cooperated fully with his rescuers and thanked them after he was freed." (Thanks, Jan Smith!)

      The rare instance where the actor playing the X-Files monster of the week is actually creepier than the monster.

    Almost anybody in any situation could be a possible burglar. He is a suspected burglar, though not a very probable one if this is one of his typical escapades.

  4. He thanked them after he was freed and told them how exhausted he was.

    He’s incredibly lucky.  Usually they only find these burglars two to three weeks after the fact.
