Stupid link of the week.

This one kind of comes from my camping post, well I found it doing that post... The California City police log. Super fun seeing what the cops get to do out in the Mojave.

I also recommend, although not as convent, the crime log from Laguna Beach, CA thanks to the Laguna Beach Independent. (Click on the "Section A" button, warning PDF file.)

David,
the police log completely inspired me. I love thinking about a hot, seemingly sleepy California afternoon, interupted by random occasions of subruban chaos and innocuous destruction. A society full of mundaniety with mundane crisises. Glory, reminds me of parts of the Oh the Glory of It All, which you should read for its glorius desciptions of excessive personalities in and out of California....I will send it to you when you get to Japan. For now, I "wrote" or rather recontextualized a poem out of your "wacky link of the week." And it's so going in my collection of serious poetry.
