The skinny: World's most arrested man gets jail turkey

Busted again

World's most arrested man gets jail turkey

The World's Most Arrested Man, a Kentuckian who has been busted more than 1500 times over the past four decades, spent another Thanksgiving in jail, records show. Henry Earl, 64, was locked up Thursday in the Fayette County Detention Center — which one day should bear his name — after his arrest last month for public intoxication. Earl was collared outside a fast food joint by Lexington cops, according to jail records. Earl, whose arrests almost uniformly have involved alcohol, was first nabbed in Fayette County in July 1970, when he was 20, for carrying a concealed weapon.

Pot post?

Still time to apply for marijuana jobs

The Denver Post has found its pot editor. Ricardo Baca will helm the paper's marijuana coverage as Colorado's recreational marijuana law goes into effect in January. Baca is a nearly 12-year veteran of the Post. The paper announced the position last week, but there are additional opportunities to join Baca's team, which will be hiring a freelance pot critic and a freelance pot advice columnist.
