From the suburban pages of the Chicago Tribune:

"Police said Friday that the fact that a body that washed up on a Wilmette beach had two left thumbs could help them identify the man.

"It's definitely going to help us in figuring out who he is," Wilmette Police Cmdr. Kyle Perkins said Friday."

Ya think?

I'm envisioning this scenario where John Travolta gets Nicholas Cage's left thumb...

Way too much "thinking in movies" of late.

Actually my original reaction was, "Oh, it's Count Rugen." "No, wait, that's the six-fingered man." So you're not the only one thinking in movies.
