    Police blotter in third-most-expensive zip code not neccesarily filled with terror

    Some chuckles here.

    The Police Blotter for America’s Third Most Expensive Zip Code is a Thing of First World Beauty (Gawker)
    Coghlan Lane, 7:33 p.m. Friday A woman told police someone was at her door, and that when she asked who it was, no one answered. Police responded and determined the stranger outside had delivered package.
    And more, at the link above.

    I lean heavily to the....
    A pedestrian was reported not to be doing anything strange other than wearing black pants and a white dress shirt while walking at an odd hour.
    THE HORROR!

    BAHAHA.

    "A woman whose finger got stuck in a drain was reported to be conscious and breathing."

    ^ +1 to the guy who worded that gem. I'm betting he doesn't make 200 K a year.

    Definitely this person has a future in short prose - Ambrose Bierce without the bitterness; a thumbnail James Thurber.

    I think you might be right, wfgodot. And it has made me suspicious indeed as to the identity of this particular ne'er-do-well:

    "A male was reported to be lying on the ground, possibly writing."

    I grew up in the town that is attached to Atherton. Many of my classmates lived there. They all had horses and beautiful acreage around their homes. It is actually the of Silicon Valley. Wozniak and Steve Jobs went to my high school. Wozniak was our AV guy and went around fixing the broken video equipment in the classrooms.

    It was funny til I got to the one where a black teen was take into custody because he was waiting for a ride. It wasn't after curfew and he was doing nothing wrong. I'm glad to not be rich.

    It is basically just the Palo Alto Hills, right next to Los Altos.

    And you didn't marry Woz because?

    We should keep a list of the "ones who got away".

    So far I know of:

    Jobs
    Wozniak
    Stephen Colbert

    Talk to southcitymom. She went to high school with Colbert in Charleston. (She has said so in other threads; I'm not betraying confidential info.)

    P.S. I have the same crush. You can't beat handsome and funny, in my book.
