Shooter of subway fare collector may have been male or female: police
The Globe and Mail ^ | February 26, 2013 | Timothy Appleby

One year after Toronto subway fare collector William Anderson was shot and badly wounded in a botched robbery at the downtown Dupont station, a $25,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the masked gunman - or gunwoman - was renewed Tuesday, with a fresh appeal for tips.

Now 53, Mr. Anderson remains off the job, still recovering from being shot in the neck and shoulder by his balaclava-clad assailant, who’s believed to have targeted that same station twice before.

The description of that person, glimpsed on video, has been revised and the perpetrator may be male or female, Staff. Insp. Mike Earl of the hold-up squad told media at police headquarters.

And since the incident, the male could’ve become female, and female could’ve become male. Check the sex change clinics!

That certainly narrows it down. They also believe that the shooter was bipedal; had only one nose; and was armed with a firearm at one time of the shooting.

As they say “Great observation there Lou” - you have to wonder about law enforcement in any state or country. Without them and others we’d have no entertainment.

I heard the word on the street is that the shooter is named Schrödinger, and may or may not still own a cat....

I know it is rhetorical, but being somewhat ‘anal’, doesn’t anyone read these press releases or somehow, somewhere an editor is paid to make sure these little slips don’t make the final cut?

So, I guess being self classified as ‘somewhat anal’, is better than being ‘completely anal’ or perhaps ‘not anal at all’, which could be the cause of constipgrumpiness!! <:

You are, of course, correct. Heisenberg only supplied the uncertainty. Schrödinger supplied the cat and the box.

To rephrase:

“Word on the street is that the shooter is named Heisenberg and that he has a strange friend named Schrödinger who keeps his cat in a box.”

Just go to the coastal communites north of L.A..

The white “men” dress like beach boys and the “women” dress lke men.

I’ll say this for the Mexicans: at least the males wear the pants in the family.

Literally.

Also word on the street is that the shooter is named Heisenberg and owns a cat.

Schrödinger proposed the "cat dichotomy" It illustrates what he saw as the problem of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics applied to everyday objects, resulting in a contradiction with common sense.

Heisenberg postulated the "Uncertainty Principle" a pillar of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics...

Well, I guess that does help narrow it down a little, since there seem to be alternatives today.

That would narrow it down to DHS, BATFE, or your local drug enforcement officer.

See post 30 and 31 above.

I work in defense contracting where common sense (especially in the current budget “crisis”) is in constant short supply. Consequently, uncertainty about whether your cat (program) is alive or dead or what its current quantum state is (adequately funded (or not)) is a fairly common state of affairs around here.
