It's clearly coincidence, but I thought it was funny as hell that the captured fugitive on the front page of yesterday's Edmonton Sun bears a striking resemblance to the dope-smoking ex-con "Ricky," a character created by actor Rob Wells for the TV show "The Trailer Park Boys". The fugitive's photo was taken in 1995 when he was 33 and wanted for the beating and abduction of an Edmonton area man. I've no idea what he looks like now.
In a near perfect example of life imitating art, the police officers who broke down the guy's door captured him in the middle of a marijuana grow op.
