The man is being called the “Grandpa Bandit” because, well, he looks like somebody’s grandfather. The balding, bespectacled man, who is believed to be 50 to 60 years old, held up the Solvay Bank branch at the State Tower Building on Sept. 22 and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

I didn't think banks held much money these days. Although to be fair he's probably not scoring on the same scale as John Dillinger.

Looking at the dates and locations, I think he was a long haul truck driver.

They can't help it. It's difficult for the straight edge to understand the nuances of alternative thinking. That's exactly why W got two terms.
