This just crossed the wire. Now, how stupid would you feel if you stuck your neck out for a guy who loses it at a rental car desk--which I'll admit, I've come close to doing many, many times.
Eds: A Rialto police officer who was working for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and an Orange County criminal defense attorney have been convicted of conspiring to solicit and accept a bribe to help an Arizona businessman avoid prosecution for head-butting a car rental manager at John Wayne Airport.

I warned you. I found this on our website!! SCARY!
First, an introduction. This is my phone. Say hello.
Now, say goodbye because it has just died.
Never to flip open again...
Anywho, I've been thinking about who/what to invite to the service. Here's the guest list so far:
1. Phone book
3. Garmin GPS
Any other ideas? I'm going to miss my flip phone. I'm anxious to get started on the eulogy. OH! Also, what should I serve?? Fondue? Shasta? Fruit Roll-Ups? So much work to do!
A gardener in South L.A. has gone rogue...
Ron Finley was home by the pool recently when his thoughts once again turned to dirt. “People need to realize how powerful the transformation of soil can be,” he said, with a hint of evangelism. “We’ve gotten so far away from our food source. It’s been hijacked from us. But if you get soil, plant something in it and water it, you can feed yourself. It’s that simple.”

“We’re going to do a parade with a hundred of these to show you can repurpose the carts instead of just junking them,” he said.

...but I love it.
I find some interesting stuff. I'm going to try any keep taking pictures surrepticiously so you guys can see what I'm talking about. Today, I stumbled upon this. It appears to be John's bobblehead and Mayor V's bobblehead and they are standing together! Hmmm. I can't help imagining a Toy Story plot playing out after the show's over and the lights go off in the office. Are they BFFs? Do they sit in their underwear together? Or do they yell at each other...
If you read this blog, you know about Ernie. He's the building manager here in Burbank and he sends hilarious emails that leave us with many questions. Remember the woman's earring found in the men's room? Anyway, just got this one:
...have all the fun. Some of the best giggles can come from small town police calls. Here's one from Steamboat, Colorado:
10:05 p.m. Police received a call from a woman who said her juvenile granddaughter was at the ski area last week and ran into a person who was selling bags of what she thought were portobello mushrooms dipped in chocolate for $30. Police said the granddaughter further informed her grandmother that giraffes were chasing her down the hill after she ate the mushrooms.
Something else cool about some small town cops: They don't arrest you, just drive you a couple blocks home.
11:34 p.m. Routt County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Oak Creek Police Department officers were called to a disturbance when an intoxicated resident became upset when a bar owner took his keys and wouldn’t let him drive home. Law enforcement gave the man a ride home.
And sometimes the crooks have paws.
1:09 p.m. Police were called to a report of a hot tub cover that had been vandalized while the home’s owner was out of town. A sergeant advised that the suspect possibly was a bear.
And when you're hot? There's usually a "pond"
9:07 a.m. Steamboat Spring Fire Rescue firefighters, mental health services and Routt County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the 27000 block of Brandon Circle for a report of a woman who had crossed U.S. Highway 40 and taken off her clothes near a school because she wanted to swim in a pond. She was transported to Yampa Valley Medical Center.
