The police want to leave no stone uncovered.

The latest in news media metaphor mixing?

Reminds me of a Paul Harvey story about the destruction of hundreds of pounds of marijuana seized by the various law enforcement agencies in Cook County, IL. being destroyed in a blast furnace on the south side of Chicago.

The news media was invited to watch and get video of the event.

Paul Harvey reported: "Just as the marijuana went up in a huge cloud of smoke, a flock of seagulls off Lake Michigan, flew right through it as we all watched.

When the smoke finally cleared, not a single tern was left un-stoned."

* In this photo he hag just received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005.
