DICK – And now, over to Amy who has an up-to-the-minute report about the latest incident from Vegas.

Cops Say Delirious Dude Attacked Neighbor With A Toilet Lid by A. J. Huffman

What happens in Vegas . . .

sometimes stinks.  A man assaulted with a deadly toilet lid?  Seriously,
a man broke into his neighbor’s house, beat
him about the head with a porcelain toilet bowl top.  Apparently,
since it is Vegas and nothing is complete
without a little showtime musical accompaniment, he also hit him
with a guitar.  It took the police twenty
minutes (and a helpful K-9) to contain the screaming,
shirtless assailant, who, upon arrest, reportedly remained
extremely hostile, and even a little bit flushed.

A.J. Huffman has published seven solo chapbooks and one joint chapbook through various small presses.  Her eighth solo chapbook, Drippings from a Painted Mind, won the 2013 Two Wolves Chapbook Contest.  She is a Pushcart Prize nominee, and her poetry, fiction, and haiku have appeared in hundreds of national and international journals, including Labletter, The James Dickey Review, Bone Orchard, EgoPHobia, Kritya, andOfferta Speciale, in which her work appeared in both English and Italian translation.  She is also the founding editor of Kind of a Hurricane Press.
