Police probing counterfeit bill

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating an incident of counterfeit money being used at a downtown restaurant.

Police said a manager of Burger King reported receiving a fake $50 bill around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

He said he noticed the bill while counting money for that day, and believes it had been handed to a clerk at the drive-through window.

Police said the bill was cut differently at the bottom than a regular $50 bill and it did not pass the brown marking test.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
