Husband who robbed a bank to avoid wife gets house arrest
Lawrence John Ripple made the news back in January when he pleaded guilty to bank robbery and told the local Kansas City cops that he did it in order to avoid his wife. According to the 71-year-old, he wrote the robbery note in front of his missus, telling her he'd rather be in jail than with her. The judge must have a great sense of humor because he has sentenced Ripple to six months of home confinement. He was also slapped with three years of supervised probation and a fine. The silver lining? Ripple says he was suffering from depression at the time but has found the right medication and is back to his old self. Turns out you can fix stupid sometimes!

Old Navy’s $1 Flip Flop Sale Is Almost Here
Old Navy’s annual $1 flip flop sale is on Saturday, June 24. But fans of the yearly bargain shopping event will be thrilled to know that this year, for the first time, they’re offering the deals online, as well as in stores.
With flip flops this cheap, it’s no surprise shoppers love this sale. “Customers start asking about the date as early as February,” explains Julie Luker, director of PR and partnerships at Gap Inc. and Old Navy. And some customers start lining up hours before the doors open, just to make sure they don’t miss those one-day only deals.
Cardholders can actually get the $1 flip flops a week early, in stores only on June 17. But the following Saturday, the sale is open to anyone and everyone who likes a bargain. And stores are even opening two hours early, so they’ll open the doors at 7 a.m. on the 24th.
The only downside is there’s a limit of 10 pairs per customer. But if you need more than 10 pair, just bring a shopping buddy to buy some too.
