Our own Archie Rice risked death yesterday and ditched his cargo plane near the San Clemente Pier. Avoiding beachgoers, he landed the plane safely along the water's edge. The DEA is questioning his cargo manifest which stated his cargo was several crates of cupi dolls. Evidently, the cargo hold was empty but reeked of cannabis. The F.A.A. is also investigating the crash scene. Archie told reporters that his girlfriend, a Miss Shotzy Shaffer, fell asleep in his lap and her head prevented him from steering the plane properly.
