  1. U can tell you once wrote for the Times — u have that pretentious air of self-important pedantry that oozes into your writing like a goofy smirk sliding across some buffoon’s face.
    Keep up the good work.

  2. Actually I think the NY Times would certaily have found a Bush-Cheney-Wolfowitz connection with Dunkin Donuts (as in they may have at one time eaten a donut!) before running with the story.
    But (and here is the real shocker) I’ll have to defend the Barista on this one.
    I *think* she is being *ironic* in her *shock* which in the topsy-turvy way in which *satire* works indicates she *might* think the whole thing is a ‘tempest in a teapot’.
    As for “pretentious air of self-important pedantry…” well, isn’t that what blogging (and commenting on someone else’s blog) is all about?
    Something you…(oh, sorry)
    Something U might consider!

  4. Its nice to know the citizens are so interested in the welfare of their local police officers. Perhaps the officer had to attend to a “nature call” and did not want to use the facilities in headquarters. Because of all the current lawsuits, the atmosphere there is nauseating.
    The officer could have been speaking with a Bloomfield officer and obtaining information on local criminal activities. Remember, Ridgers, you don’t live in a vacuum.
    If you’ve ever worked a 12 hour shift in a car, you’d know that getting out of the car for a stretch keeps you more alert.
    In any case, give the officers a break and your vote of confidence.
