Grandpa Solves Crime With Amateur Detective Skills
Here's a feel-good story about the olds fighting back against the youngs with wisdom and moxie. As the New York Post tells it, 83-year-old John McGinnis noticed thousands of dollars had gone missing from a drawer in his room at a Brooklyn senior citizens' home. So he did a little Sherlock-work, putting a folded business card between the drawer and the dresser. His 21-year-old attendant was busted when she opened the drawer and the telltale card fell to the floor. The money quote: "We went outside, and I told her, 'You're a little crook and you stole my money!' " McGinnis said. (We hear this technique also works with a bit of Scotch tape.) [NYP]
