“Whoever’s responsible for this is going to get reamed.”

Regardless, I hope they close the book on this investigation quickly.

I mean, this needs to be slammed shut.

A tragedy like this can’t be buried under a other files.

Police say they are checking missing person databases, and may use circulate a composite sketch to try to identify the man.

I pictured a squished bail. I guess I'm wrong here.

1,500-pound bale of paper

Actually, the bale was only 1,325 pounds of paper!

The poor guy did not get a bail out.

I’ll bet Hamilton Manufacturing Inc. has complained a lot before about non-paper being in those bales. They get pretty stupid when that happens.

Anybody remember “Men at Work” (1990) with the brothers Sheen and Estevez?

Keith David (one of my personal favorites) had one of the best movie lines of the 1990s;

“Looks like somebody threw away a perfectly good white boy!”
