MANCHESTER, N.H. – Police say a New Hampshire woman charged with robbing a pharmacy wasn't hard to find: Her name was on the license plate of the getaway car. Police say a motorist watched the woman flee from a Rite Aid parking lot in Manchester. The witness also reported seeing the woman toss items from her car Friday morning. The vanity plate read "B-USHER." Police tell WCVB-TV that the car was registered to 43-year-old Bonnie Usher, who was arrested at her home. Police recovered stolen money and found a ski mask tossed from the car. An official at the Hillsborough County Jail says Usher was being held Sunday night on $60,000 bail. The jail's paperwork did not indicate whether she had retained a lawyer.
Little known fact, New Hampshire (Boston's largest suburb) has the second most vanity plates per capita in the nation. For a suburb who's motto is "live free or die" giving off a strong minimal government vibe, their citizens sure make it easy for their government to track them down when necessary. Certainly makes police work easier, no more asking witnesses for make and model of the car, just have to ask if the redneck put their name or any other cutesy phrases on the back of the car.
It must really work to curb road rage and speeding infractions though. I'd be far less tempted to piss off other drivers on the road if I knew they could identify me by my license plate. Certainly wouldn't be flipping people off at every perceived slight anymore.

(NewsCore) - Hunger beat out the hospital for one Connecticut man. Shot twice near the groin, New Haven resident Miguel Soto III had a choice: Eat the sandwich he just bought, or rush to the emergency room just a block away. He headed home, sat down in the kitchen and polished off the hero before asking his dad for a ride to Yale-New Haven hospital, WVIT-TV reported late Wednesday.
Sadly, in yet another example of poor, sloppy journalism, the site does not report the two most vital pieces of information at play here though. What kind of sandwich was it? And where did he get it from (seriously this sub shop should have a huge billboard that just says good enough to die for)?
I'm going to rule out just about any kind of cold-cut sandwich because no man would be that ridiculous. Has to be hot and has to be toasted. I initially thought steak but then reconsidered, good steak tip or steak and cheese subs are really a dime a dozen. Each city has a claim to the best and for the most part they're all the same, can't be that. Same argument goes for chicken parm, anyone can make a good one. Meatball sub would be a good contender, but anyone that's ever heated up the leftovers to a meatball sub knows its almost as good cold or reheated as it was when it was piping hot.
This leaves really only one option in my mind, the Thanksgiving Sub. Its the pinnacle of sub-making and not every sub shop even attempts to make it. Takes just the right balance of turkey and stuffing to protect the bread from becoming mush from the cranberry sauce and gravy. When it's perfected, there is nothing better, dare I say worth dying for. Yep, that's gotta be it.
