I guess that they could save money by yanking the guy that's stuck sitting in back of the white photo enforcement van. Isn't that what we have the robots for anyway? This way the cops that normally are only working on issuing fines to speeding cars can be freed up to prevent actual felonies and property crimes.
Every single antique shop and thrift or vintage store in Tucson has been burglarized in the last year or so. And almost all of them have had it happen not once but twice. [This is totally true.]
Now the police want more money from these businesses so that they can do a better job locating stolen property from places that don't really have as much property in the first place because the police couldn't do a better job of catching the crooks that robbed them.
Does this make sense? It doesn't to me.
I'm sure that most people would like it if their stolen property was located and returned and the bad guys held accountable. But, honestly, don't you think everyone would like it even more if they didn't have someone rob them in the first place?
You're not alone in how you feel about this one. The real story here though is a lot more sordid than we know. What I want to know about are the details behind whatever deranged and doomed wager that Kevin Spacey so obviously lost. I mean, seriously, what in hell could have happened to have ever made him fork over a chunk of the money and actually produce this lame movie? You think he did that on purpose? [I hope not.]
I've always said that Golden Boots are easily one of my very favorite bands. [In Tucson or otherwise.] I once had to give away my copy of Bland Canyon after the increasing pleas from my worried friends to listen to something else. There was a certain point where it was all I ever seemed to play and I did so on some maddening loop. It drove everybody but me crazy and it's still one of my favorite albums of all-time. No kidding.
