Know your ingredients--the cheese edition

Ahhh, more news you couldn't make up. Gleaned from today's news, we have yet another reason to get in touch with the food you (and your neighbors) eat.

In an unusual case of mistaken identity, a woman who thought a block of white cheese was cocaine is charged with trying to hire a hit man to rob and kill four men. The woman also was mistaken about the hit man. He turned out to be an undercover police officer. Jessica Sandy Booth, 18, was arrested over the weekend and remains in jail with bond set at $1 million on four charges of attempted murder and four counts of soliciting a murder.

According to police, Booth was in the Memphis home of the four intended victims last week when she mistook a block of queso fresco cheese for cocaine - inspiring the idea to hire someone to break into the home, take the drugs, and kill the men.

I once had a conversation with a four year-old who said "drugs are white" with a certainty that led me to think that he believed all white things just might be drugs, but I was pretty convinced that it was a stage. Apparently it's a stage that some folks don't get through very easily.

Being happy that she was stopped doesn't stop me from wondering what she would have done had they just stolen the cheese (which would have been easy, because really who protects their queso fresco with deadly force?) and then discovered it was worth a few bucks a pound on the open market. Excuse me while I laugh.
