It seems some sanity still
exists in this world. Charges will not be filed against the six girls who strewn Super Mario question mark
blocks all around their tiny Ohio town on April Fool's day. According to Portage County Prosecutor Victor V.
Vigluicci, "I do not believe that they had any bad or malicious intentions ... [the girls] were not thinking about
the consequences of their actions in this day and age."
Although "this day and age" sounds a bit sensationalist, since a town of 12,000 is extremely likely not to be a target for any attack spearheaded by
fascists nazis communists aliens terrorists, we are
very pleased that the prosecutor (or one of his superiors/constituents) came to his senses and decided to let these
girls off the hook.
