I can find nothing worth mentioning on this blog today. I couldn't find anything yesterday either. So I bring you this. I admit it's kind of weak.
From the Daily Mail:
The force was not strong with Obiwan Kenobi when he allegedly fled a five-car pileup in California.
Police arrested the 37-year-old man, who legally changed his name to a Star Wars character's 13 years ago, after tracking him back to his home earlier this month.
He now faces a felony charge that even his Jedi mind tricks are likely to free him from.
Indeed, his only hope of release from jail is to post $17,000 bail.
It was a $1,000 bet -- aired by a local radio station to promote the release of Star Wars Episode I -- that led Obiwan to change his name to that of the Jedi master.He went to the Department of Motor Vehicles hoping to pay $15 for a fictitious motorcycle permit. Instead, he saved himself $3 and legally changed his name with a $12 form, he told the Lincoln News Messenger in 2008.
