15 Minutes of Fame

Michelle Allen of Middletown, Ohio was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct last night after allegedly chasing children in her neighborhood, blocking traffic and peeing on a neighbor's porch. The police report notes Ms. Allen was wearing a cow costume at the time of the incident but does not mention the reason.

Speculation is Ms. Allen, well aware that even in our media-saturated world a disorderly conduct arrest barely merits mention in the local paper's police blotter, donned the cow suit to parlay her night of fun into 15 minutes of national fame.

Look for Ms. Allen on the morning news and talk show circuit as soon as she completes her 30-day jail sentence.

Kevin: Oh, so you and Ms. Allen run in the same circles. That explains a lot. ;)
