Runaway news with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Jennifer Wilbanks, the infamous “Runaway Bride,” inspired a recruitment campaign for New Mexico police (see above). “We’re hoping to get 1,100 officers, and this is a unique way to recruit,” said a police official. “I’m sure I’m going to get some harassment [for producing the ad].” What’s next, celebrity endorsements from the cast of Reno 911?
• The Game looks like a runaway rapper, as the recording artist failed to appear for court in Manhattan yesterday. The rapper is facing charges of impersonating a cop so he could convince a taxicab driver to run through red lights (see Essay 1574). Maybe he should apply for a job with the police in New Mexico.
