Reporting the facts in order of importance....

Just the placement of the line highlighted in red within this minor news story made me smirk...via the New York Post:

Fire marshals investigating a roaring SoHo inferno yesterday morning were stunned to find a massive marijuana stash in the apartment of a celebrity photographer, sources said.

Jennifer Tzar, 44, allegedly had 10 pounds of weed stuffed in plastic bags and left in plain sight inside her fifth-floor apartment at 68 Thompson St., where the nasty three-alarm blaze was extinguished at about 4:30 a.m.

"It was high quality," one source said.

Third paragraph, first quote.  First question that came to every reader's mind, I suppose...

Some other good stuff in this non-story of sorts

The blaze also brought out some good Samaritans.

About the same time as Tzar's bust, tenant Kathie Cammann, 64 -- still dressed in her pajamas -- was approached by a neighborhood resident who gently pressed a pocketbook into her arms.

Inside, Cammann said, was a toothbrush and $100.

Nice.  But how will Jennifer Tzar be able to create bizarre mood photos/pieces like these without her pounds and pounds of weed?
