Here’s a story from last month that we hadn’t noticed until it showed up in the Boston Herald’s “offbeat news” column this morning:
A man tried to rob a woman at a stamp kiosk inside the post office in Muhlenberg Township, Pa., mistakenly thinking that she was at an ATM machine withdrawing money. She told him she had no cash, only stamps. He pulled a knife, but fled when a postal worker intervened. The cops found him hiding in a dumpster at a nearby business.
