Barry: "No, really, I didn't do it!"
Law Enforcement: "Don't lie to us! That's impossible! Your wireless connection is encrypted!!"
Quite right. I thought about reading the full story but then something shiny distracted me.
uh...what? I just read the summary. Did you expect me to actually RTFA?
"Obama would already be on his way back"
