Pearl: While I was standing on stage during my quilt guild lecture, a gang member ran through the hall followed by a Sherriff yelling “down in front” and holding his gun. The gang member ran through the aisle carefully around the patterns table and around the quilt rack leaving the building. Funny thing was his pants were baggie and hanging so low that it impaired his ability to run very fast. He was arrested outside the building.
