    THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: Within hours after the Aqua Clara Motel was shut down because it was a haven for prostitutes

    and drug dealers, it was taken over by Clearwater, Fla., police

    officers posing as prostitutes and drug dealers. Members of the

    local underworld simply assumed they were still dealing with real criminals like themselves, and were very surprised when

    other in celebration of the imminent rainy season. The chief is

    afraid that his men will accidentally pull out the wrong gun.

    OK, THAT'S SIX, CARRY THE ONE: The wrong team was

    declared the winner of the Iowa State Math Championship,

    because officials calculated the scores incorrectly. The judges

    were off by 60 points.

    WHAT GAVE ME AWAY, OFFICER? A Florida jail inmate

    stole his orange prison jumpsuit when he was released and then,

    a few months later, wore it to a rock concert where many sheriff's

     deputies were providing security. After they grabbed him, the
