Times is Hard...


In case you've been curious about the goings-on in my neck of the woods:

The economic crisis is leading desperate people to desperate measures. A financial planner was arrested and charged after robbing a Peekskill bank at knifepoint this week. Here's where the bizarro comes in:

"Police said that Solomon was wearing a Groucho Marx mask, consisting of glasses, fake busy eyebrows and a fake mustache, when he entered Trustco Bank lobby in a Welcher Avenue shopping plaza a few minutes after its 9 a.m. opening on Jan. 16 and robbed the bank at knifepoint."

I wonder if this is the first time this stock disguise has ever been used in such a crime...

Yeah - the 1979 movie Going in Style starring Art Carney, George Burns & Lee Strasberg. They are 3 bored old guys who decide to live it up by robbing a bank. Their disguise was the glasses/nose/mustasche. It was one of my Dad's favorite movies.
