Atwater Police Activity

Holy shit. Piddling around facebook, all of a sudden I heard sirens and  a helicopter and for the next 45 minutes, my house was under surveillance for some reason. Helicopter lights all over it, police and detective cars parked in front, people with flashlights running back and forth and just me and the doggies. Lights out, sit in front, watch in dark and hope for the best and be grateful for the half a xanax I popped half an hour before. And now it's mostly silent. Not sure how I can possibly sleep soundly tonight.

Los Angeles Times

Though the LA Times has been actively disminishing itself over the last few years, today's edition proved once again that there are some really amazing writers working there. Read these three articles.

Dan Neil's review of a new Mazda is splendid and proof he deserved the pullitzer. Kenneth Turan's review of "Education" is also spectacular. And, of course, Bill Plaschke does a tremendous job at summing up the Dodgers victory.

I think I'll keep my delivery - it's money well spent.

Best. Poll. Question. Ever!

OMG, in the middle of my franks n beans dinner (no lie, I had a craving), the NRA called ME for a poll. A woman asked me to listen to a message from Wayne LaPierre (sp?) - about the UN forcing the world to ban guns - and then a guy got on the horn and asked me (I shit you not): "Do you think third world dictators AND Hilary Clinton should dictate our gun policy?" My response: "Absolutely." He gasped, chuckled and said ok and hung up. I think they may have gotten the wrong number.

Best. Poll. Question. Ever!
