This comments thing hacked off the rest of my comment. What gives?

Anyway, here it is:

Mr Store Clerk; why are you wasting the policemans time? If you dont want to report then dont call. There are folks out there being victimized who will actually file a report. They actually deserve the police time investment.

Police log: 'Man says stolen plane at Tracy airport'.

"He said the plane was stolen from Australia, and he had received word that the plane (might be) at the airport." -Which as we all know looks a lot like Sydney?

Friday.

"4:48 p.m.: A caller reported a strong smell of marijuana coming through the ventilation system at the Opera House, 902 N. Central Ave. He said he thought the might be a marijuana dispensary in the building." -An older patron with memories of

symphony musicians tuning up beforehand with some classical gas?
