A very sad day. We are sad to report veteran Miami Police Captan Robert (Bobby) Yee (retired) was murdered at his job in security at a Boat Yard at the Miami River.
Those of you who knew Captan Yee, knew he was as dedicated as they come.
Thanks to Bill Matthewman (who is quoted in the article) for the tip.

Just in time for the 4th of July! (or shortly thereafter)
When in due course of human events, it becomes apparent that a 208 year old presidential code needs to be cracked......
Fascinating WSJ article (the title links to the post) on solving a 208 year old mystery.
Longtime and careful readers of the blog may remember that from time to time we dabble in cryptology.
And nobody can think outside of the box and wonder why we have a "21" attached to our email address.
Well, maybe it won't take 208 years.
See You In Court?
And while we're perusing the WSJ, here's an article on the ol' My DNA Made me do it defense.
And just because we're bored, here's an article on a Lawyer who was denied admission to the NY Bar because over the 26 years it took him to complete his education he ran up over 200,000 in school loans (which a collection agency quickly turned into $400,000) and the NY Court of appeals rejected the Bar committee's approval of his application for admission. The Bar said the applicant's persistence was "remarkable". The Court of Appeals found his failure to make any payments sufficient to deny him admission.
