After a chase involving a helicopter, Santa Ana police arrested two men and a kid who allegedly stole money from a tip jar in a Costa Mesa Starbucks.

I will never understand the SoCal obsession with police helicopter chases. Nor why the po-po fixate on a few punks stealing 20 bucks instead of  the hedge fund managers in Newport Beach ripping off billions.

In any event, I couldn’t decide which illustration to use for this post, so I’ll put up both. Vote for your favorite in the comments.





@Mistress Cynica: There’s a reason I put her first. And now I have “Little Boxes” as my earworm for the rest of the night.

As a long-retired DEA Senior Forensic Chemist [Dec 1995], I loves me some Botwins and Cranston too. I lost the faith early-on, about 1975, but I always stood up for the side of “innocent till proven guilty”, and was so a thorn in the side of the assholes-in-charge.
Looks bad when you’re a never-served civilian going after an actual volunteer Vietnam vet.
Or at least it did back then.

@RevZafod: Since “Fried Green Tomatoes” is one of my top 5 movies, I’m predisposed to love Mary-Louise Parker, but I swear to FSM that show jumped the proverbial shark by Season 4. And the dead DEA agent was the harbinger.

That said, I can’t wait until Netflix delivers the new season.
