Chasing Tweety Bird on a Scooter

DALLAS (AP) — A convenience store owner in one of Dallas’ poorest neighborhoods was amazed when she started seeing children from the elementary school across the street buying candy and chips with $100 bills. …

It turned out that a youngster had apparently found tens of thousands of dollars in suspected drug money and was handing it out to others.

Soon, though, some men came looking for the money, spreading fear through the South Dallas neighborhood. …

On Thursday night, a man was arrested and accused of abducting and beating a 12-year-old boy who had some of the money. The boy was later returned home.

Before he was jailed on $5 million bail, the suspect, 23-year-old Sylvespa Adams, told KDFW-TV that he never threatened anyone and that the money had been stolen from him. He disputed it was drug money, as police suspect.

“I’m not no kidnapper,” he said. “I work.”

    In the education world I have come across ABCDE (pronounced Ab-suh-Dee), Dezyre (pronounced desire (have they already bought her a stopper pole?)), Kavacia (pronounced like the liquor) and Neveah (heaven backwards, as in the opposite of heaven). Those are just the worst, but there are others.
