Well, it was probably only a matter of time before a guy with this last name would get arrested for dealing drugs. It happened last Tuesday when Fairfax County Sheriffs arrested Kevin Lee Cokayne in Herndon ,VA. Herndon is a town in Fairfax County, Virginia, in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area of the United States.
I always worry about those three-namer guys, Billy Bob, Bobby Joe, Kevin Lee. They have a tendency to turn up in police blotters for some reason. Like Bobby Joe Long a notorious serial killer. Probably because a lot of people in that area of the country have a Bob, or a Billy, or a Joe, or a Lee as a middle moniker. Add Cokayne to that, and you can’t lose.
What really got me about the story was when the sheriffs asked if they could search his apartment, he said no. Said it would be a waste of their time since all he had was an eighth of an ounce of marijuana and that wasn’t nothing but a misdemeanor. Turns out he lied.
What police found was a safe with marijuana, a wooden box with marijuana, two jars containing marijuana, a smoking device with marijuana, a digital scale, (which must be broken since he said he only had an eighth of an ounce) and “records and documents for Kevin Cocaine [sic],” a search inventory revealed. He left out the “Lee”? Lesson learned anyway, drug dealers shouldn’t keep records. So 24-year old, Kevin Lee Cokayne, was arrested for dealing marijuana, but not cocaine.
Which immediately made me think of Eric Clapton and his famous tune “Cocaine.” “She lied, she lied, she lied, cocaine.” So my apologies to Eric. Yeah, we’re on a first-name basis. Here’s a video.
In other news, Vice President John Tyler was on his knees when he was informed that President William Henry Harrison had died and he was now President. He wasn’t praying at the time, he was playing marbles. The kid’s game was very popular with adults back in the 1840s.
And did you know that no one knows who created Eggs Benedict? They really don’t know. There’s a lot of guesses out there, but I’m thinking I might apply for a government grant to investigate the origin of the half-English Muffin, topped with ham or bacon, and hollandaise sauce. Never had it myself. Hollandaise doesn’t sound or look good to me. What do you think?
