Peak: An old issue resolved

The first - read: only - big issue on this blog came two years ago with the sordid tale of the Parkway West Rock Thrower. With a vigilance and, dare I say, exuberance virtually unmatched in just about any other area of my life, I paid daily diligence to the story as Jeffrey Angelo Ramous, aka The Parkway West Rock Thrower, was identified and arrested. And after his arrest, the story gained even more intrigue - for me, at least - as various details came out and copycats emerged.

If you're bored, you can follow my documentation of the saga here.

Anyway, I bring this up because today news is out that Ramous, the terror of the Parkway West, has been sentenced for his antics:

A Carnegie man was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in prison this morning for throwing rocks at cars on the Parkway West over a two-year span.
That line pretty much sums it up; no new details came out of the sentencing, in which Ramous pleaded no contest to the 40 counts against him.

Justice, thy will is done.

Chris, I read about the sentencing of the Rock Thrower today, and having never seen a picture of him, I decided to Google search the name "Jeffrey Angelo Ramous." You should know that the top link returned was a "Peaks and Gutters" blog post, thus reminding me of the existence of your blog. I am now a follower of your blog, and I look forward to receiving notice of your new posts. You might want to think about writing a thank you letter to Mr. Ramous for driving up your site traffic...

But while Ramous was driving up my site traffic, he did it by terrorizing Parkway West traffic, which leaves me very conflicted. I guess I'm a collateral benefactor.

When I noticed this in the news I flew right over to your site to see what's up.

Odd he or his lawyer didn't bother pleading insanity.

I saw this in today's paper and immediately came to your site. No one covered the Parkway West Rock thrower like Peaks & Gutters
