Trucker missing; so is cargo of 3.6 million nickels

MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- A truck driver has disappeared with the 3.6 million nickels he was hauling to the Federal Reserve Bank in New Orleans, police said Friday.

Angel Ricardo Mendoza, 43, picked up the coins, worth $180,000, December 17 from the Federal Reserve in New Jersey and was supposed to haul the cargo -- weighing 45,000 pounds -- to New Orleans for a trucking company subcontracted by the Federal Reserve, police said.

On December 21, Mendoza's empty truck and trailer turned up at a truck stop in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Miami-Dade police, the FBI and the Federal Reserve police are investigating.

"We are concerned for his safety because he's missing," Miami-Dade Detective Randy Rossman said. "We suspect foul play. We are concerned and we are still investigating."

Mendoza lives in Miami-Dade County but has no family in the area. Police said he has a wife in Cuba.

What sort of fucking moron decides to steal 20+ tons of nickels? What in the world would you even do with them? Go to a car dealership and buy yourself a sportscar and pay them in change? I can almost imagine some sort of hilarious incident at some supermarket coinstar machine. What a bunch of jackasses. I just hope they thought the truck was carrying bills of some sort and were dismayed to realize it was coinage. The fact they actually managed to cart off 20 tons though suggests that they were prepared for it. Hell, they didn't even manage to swipe quarters.

No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I’m here, nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you

Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I’m here, with you and beside you
To guard you and to guide you

Say you love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you

Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You’re safe, no one will find you
Your fears are far behind you

All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you, always beside me
To hold me and to hide me

Then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you here, beside you
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine, that's all I ask of you

Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you

Share each day with me, each night, each morning

Say you love me

You know I do

Love me, that's all I ask of you

Anywhere you go, let me go too
Love me, that's all I ask of you

Holiday Pictures

I think the thrill of taking pictures is really starting to wane. Normally, going back to jersey for two weeks would have sent me on a frenzy of picture taking with at least a hundred or two pictures. This time around I think I limited it to 30 or so. Of those, I thought I'd share a dozen. I managed to reverse the order a bit, so the first pictures are from new years eve while the rest were taken earlier. As I said earlier, I went to a friend's place for the new years. We haven't had the oppertunity to spend much time together though I guess that will hopefully change soon. He invited me over to his place and after a hellish drive through what I'm certain was the outskirts of hades, I made it. I have a new theory that you can judge how scary a neighborhood is by the number of street corner loiterers per square block. If that holds, then this place was scoring off the charts. I live in the south side of chicago and this place gave me the willies like nothing where I live.

Here's a picture to whet your anticipation. Don't I look all excited and festive in my crown and whozits. I ended up wearing that thing around for hours, including the drive home. I just sort of forgot it was up there after a while.
