Today's must-read news item of the day comes to use from beautiful downtown Fontana:

An armed robber who sneaked up on a bicyclist Sunday night didn't want the man's money, wallet or anything else of great value.

He wanted tacos. The victim, a 35-year-old Fontana man, had just bought about $20 in tacos from a stand at San Bernardino and Fontana avenues and was riding home when the bandit confronted him.

"He approached him from behind, saying, `Give me your tacos,"' said police Sgt. Jeff Decker. "He grabbed the bag of tacos, punched him in the face and began to flee."

The victim demanded his tacos back when they were taken. "The suspect then pointed what appeared to be a black handgun at the victim"

Kids, we know that the taco lifestyle sometimes gets people excited, and that being low on cash can drive some to desperation. But violence like this, even for a monster sack of delicious carnitas tacos, is never acceptable. The thief has been described as a "25- to 30-year-old man, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 190 pounds with brown hair and eyes and a very long mustache".
