Five years ago: Leaders of the September 11th commission urged senators to embrace their proposals for massive changes to the nation’s intelligence structure.

Watercooler Talk
PLAIN CITY, Utah (AP) — Police in Utah said a 7-year-old boy led officers on a car chase in an effort to avoid going to church.
Dispatchers received reports of a child driving recklessly on Sunday morning. Weber County Sheriff’s Capt. Klint Anderson said one witness said the boy drove through a stop sign. Anderson said two deputies caught up with the boy and tried unsuccessfully to stop the Dodge Intrepid in an area about 45 miles north of Salt Lake City.

The car reached 40 mph before the boy stopped in a driveway and ran inside a home. Anderson said when the boy’s father later confronted him, the boy said he didn’t want to go to church.

The boy is too young to prosecute and no citations were issued, although police did urge the father to make his car keys more inaccessible to children.
