* Sunday, September 11 2:31 p.m. A woman's purse was appropriated from an Alliance Road apartment by a dreadlocked man said to be en route to the Plaza and its always-welcoming taverns.

* 3:09 p.m. One minute, a woman's wallet was at a downtown brewery. The next, it was gone.

* 5:43 p.m. No one could find the bicyclists for their version, but according to a car driver, he and his family were driving southbound on Alliance Road just past Foster Avenue when they came upon three bicyclists riding in the same direction, two of whom were out in the street. The driver followed at 5 mph, then honked his horn, and that was when the fun began. A bicyclist with a trailer stopped, came up to the car and began pounding on it, so the driver's teenage son did the only logical thing and pulled a metal pole bearing a white flag from the bike trailer. At this point, the mom said she was going to call the police and the festivities ended.

* 6:10 p.m. A man climbing up on McKinley was asked to get down, and he did, but, egged on by a crowd hostile to police officers, refused to identify himself.

* Monday, September 12 8:23 p.m. A possible ripoff school flunkout attempting to perpetrate a scarf 'n' scram may have become confused at a Ninth Street restaurant, where he ordered food but left before it was even delivered to his table. No, you eat, then run.

* Tuesday, September 13 12:30 a.m. Four men drove off from F Street in what was generously described as a "classic" blue car, saying they planned to fight someone. The witness described the menfolk as follows: 1. "Shirt off, blood on face." 2. "Shaved head, seemed sober." 3. "Shorter, black leather jacket." 4. "Can't remember." The motley crew wouldn't leave, but when the witness got on the phone to police, they did.

* 9:04 a.m. A brown-panted traveler was reported playing in traffic on the freeway.

* 3:46 p.m. The camper caravan collection at N Street between Eighth and Ninth streets responded to warnings by switching spots and yelling at each other, a solution deemed less than effective by a neighbor.

* 6:14 p.m. A man with a Fu Manchu mustache and dark training suit and his blonde female companion made off with a couple of six-packs from an I Street store, winding their way through the mobile home park at Seventh and K and on to the rusting train tracks near Fun Bunch World Headquarters, then over the fence to the old barrel factory grounds and the vast, trackless wastelands beyond.

* 12:46 p.m. A high school student ran up and threw the automatic shutoff switch at a Northtown gas station, killing the pumps as customers gassed up.

* 10:03 p.m. A sandwich shop employee reported this guy waiting for her outside the business. He was described as wearing two red potato sacks around his shoulders.

* 4:35 p.m. When neighbor turns against neighbor, it may well manifest in a piece of irrigation pipe being tossed into a yard. Police held on-site restraining order seminars.

* 6:52 p.m. A suspicious twenty-something with shoulder-length brown hair wandered around West End Road, carrying a skateboard and knocking on doors. maybe it was the orange shirt, but someone suggested he might be on drugs. Police found him and he didn't seem to be on anything. He said he was just going around preaching about God.

* 8:14 p.m. "Go ahead and call the police," said the man reported yelling and punching walls in his Alliance Road apartment. "I'll kill them and everyone else as well!" This consumed lots of police time, and, among other things, kept them from responding quickly to the second night's festivities at the D Street center.

It's a good sign when cops can still laugh at the stupidity of mankind.

And yeah this is a seriously good writer... funny shit....

 

Tuesday, January 11 7:30 a.m. A caller suspected a sinister explanation for the dome light burning in her car in the 100 block of G Street. Investigation revealed that the light had been left on by accident, satisfying the concerns of all by the most dedicated conspiracy theorists.

6:46 p.m. A freeloader grazed the olive and salad bar at a 13th Street marketplace until cited and asked to leave.

 

Tuesday, November 2 4:11 p.m. Either there's a space-time wormhole in the bathroom of a business in the 1000 block of H Street, or the wallet a woman left in there for five minutes was greedily groundscored by a fellow bathroom-goer. We report, you decide.

This shit is too funny....

 

6:10 p.m. Caffeine-worship/ingestion rituals were tragically encumbered by a resounding he-she hissyspat at a downtown coffee temple. By order of the god Arabica, this shall not be tolerated.

 

4:42 a.m. A man in green jacket and camouflage pants mounted a surgical strike on the liquor aisle at a 24-hour Uniontown supermarket, extracting a bottle of hooch for frantic glugging behind the pet store. He was found on a westbound course on Fifth Street and arrested on public drunkenness and shoplifting charges, thus ensuring that he got breakfast, too.

This town is fucking hilarious. This is what happens when you don't have A) crime or B) anything to do. You gotta be resourceful, and dine and dash without dining...drink coffee in an illegal manner...things like that. Go nuts. Smoke herb, and worship the sun...

 

I had at least five friends who went to State in Arcata...and they weren't going for the curriculum, either. No, they were fans of the, uh, kind outdoor horticulture...yeah. I wonder how many of those guys actually graduated, and how many are pumping gas somewhere in Humboldt, shacked up in the woods. No, they probably went on to have lives...but, I wonder what employers think when they see that you graduated from Humboldt State. Shit, now that everyone gets high nowadays, he'd probably try to hook something up with you.

 

I have a good friend from Arcata, and like me, he had to grow up with hippies...so, everytime he goes home for a few days, he has to go out and get plastered the night before, so when he gets off the bus, he's all crazy and hungover looking...and since everybody gives peace a chance in Arcata, they tend to give the surly, cracked-out guy a wide berth. Dude knows the drill.

Man I hate those fucking cops that sit at the skatepark for an hour and eat lunch to kill your session 'cause you're not wearing pads.

 

... :(

 

When I was up in Humboldt last I saw a lot of good graff all the way up 5 north from the bay, and then on the way down 101 I saw more ...

 

The humboldt scene is kinda cool too - graffiti wise - , better than where I used to live.
