MAN PAYS FINE WITH CENTS

Tom Fort forwarded this story: "A man ticketed for
speeding thought hed get even by paying his fine with
12,000 pennies.

But the judge had the final word by making him wait for
the change to be counted."

Rather than count the small garbage can full of pennies by
hand, Court Administrator Jan Cosette took them to the
bank, where they were put in a counting machine. She
returned with $120 in cash and some extra pennies, which
were given to the Seattle man, who waited in the courthouse."
