Break out the throwing stars

The ATF vs. the Methodist ninja story has caught on ...

Countdown with Keith Olbermann listed it second on its top three countdown last night:

Number two, Jermiah Ransom, students of the University of Georgia detained there by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, who said he was a suspicious individual. Mr. Ransom says all he was doing was minding his own business, walking home from a university event, but it was the annual Wesley Foundation Pirates versus Ninjas party. He was still in full costume.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is on the case as well.

• Forbes Magazine runs the Associated Press story.

The Red & Black follows up with alleged ninja/wacky Methodist Jeremiah Ransom. We also learn ATF agents, at least the ones visiting Athens-Clarke County on Tuesday, apparently do confuse cell phones for guns.

God, I miss Athens.

However, we've got a pretty psycho mayor. That's kind of fun.

I bet that makes city council meetings much more efficient down in Jackson.
