“Remote-control guns rigged behind the license plate of a parked car opened fire on the bullet-proof Mercedes-Benz of a reputed mobster in an assassination attempt this week,” newyorkdailynews.com reports. “Then the gadget-equipped murder-mobile burst into flames.” The inevitable Bond, James Bond comparisons have taken this story viral. Hopeless pedants will note that the car shooting at Radovan Krejcir was no Aston Martin DB5. (Keeping in mind that latter-day Bond-mobiles were more into missiles than machine guns.) The theory making the rounds: Krejcir himself set-up the failed hit to aid his RSA asylum-seeking ambitions. Sounds about right. Any self-respecting hitman would have blown him to smithereens or delivered a double tap to the head at close range. I wonder which Bond Krejcir prefers.
