No Longer Weird

Adding to the list of stories that were formerly weird but which now occur with such frequency that they must be retired from circulation: (87) The person arrested for drunk-driving who decides to contest the charge but is drunk again when arriving in court, as was Joseph Longfellow, 35, who blew a .32 blood-alcohol reading (four times the state driving limit).

(88) People who live in airports, like Iranian Merhan Nasseri, who lived at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport for 18 years because of passport problems and who inspired the Tom Hanks film "The Terminal" (and among others, Anthony Delaney, who was arrested at London's Gatwick airport in February after nearly four years' residence).
