if you're not watching Justified, you're missing some snappy dialogue

Harlan's dad: "Where were you, woman?"
Harlan's stepmother: "Down in the parking lot giving blow jobs for cash."
Harlan's dad: "Were you paying or were they?"

OMG...great stuff! And Timothy Olyphant is soooooooo easy on the eyes!

Man's hero pins on his police badge in Arlington

We never really know how our actions affect others, do we? And it was SO COOL of Sgt. Wegscheider to attend the ceremony! Congrats to new Officer Nguyen.


Quan Nguyen grew up cheering television's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as they battled evil to protect the world. But it was the actions of a real-life crime fighter that inspired Nguyen, 25, to the ultimate moment of his life Thursday when he became an Arlington police officer.

That living hero, Sgt. Scott Wegscheider, was in town to pin the badge on Nguyen's chest during graduation ceremonies for Arlington's 40th police recruit class. It was the culmination of a relationship that began 17 years earlier in Colorado when Wegscheider saved the life of Nguyen's older sister, Kim, after she fell into a neighbor's pool during a party and stopped breathing.

The two saw each other briefly two days later at the hospital where Kim was taken but never formally met. Both moved on but never forgot each other or that June day in 1993.


how smart these dogs are!

Video shows dog leading Alaska troopers to fire

A dashcam video from the Alaska State Troopers shows a dog leading them through winding back roads to a blazing fire at his owners' property.

The video on the troopers' website shows the German shepherd running to meet the trooper's vehicle, then racing to the house on Caswell Lakes on April 4.

Troopers say Buddy and his owner, 23-year-old Ben Heinrichs, were in the family workshop when a heater ignited chemicals. Heinrichs told Buddy: "We need to get help."

The dog eventually found a trooper responding to a call about the fire.

The State Troopers are presenting a special award Friday to the dog. Buddy will receive an engraved silver-plated dog bowl in Anchorage.

Heinrichs suffered minor flash burns on his face. The workshop was destroyed, but only some window trim on the house was damaged.

more proof police work stinks!

Police find suspect neck-deep in liquid manure pit

Police said that officers searching for a man wanted on methamphetamine charges found him hiding neck-deep in a liquid manure pit at a northeastern Indiana farm. Noble County sheriff's deputies thought they'd lost the man until an officer spotted him in the tank beneath an outbuilding floor on the farm near Albion.

Chief Deputy Doug Harp said the man, 52, had been neck-deep in the combination of hog and dog feces for at least an hour Tuesday evening. He later became combative and had to be shocked twice with a stun gun.

The suspect was treated at a hospital for hypothermia before he being taken to jail.

A Steuben County magistrate on Wednesday ordered the suspect held without bail because he missed court hearings in February and March.

Fox renews 'Cops' for 23rd season

Fox is renewing one of the longest-running shows in primetime, "Cops," for a 23rd season.

The show will soon celebrate its 800th episode on the network and has shown 2,044 arrests across 140 U.S. cities.

"We're doing gangbusters," creator John Langley said. "It's an existential variety show -- dramatic, life-threatening, philosophical and legal. We're still the only show on television with no script, no actors, no host and no re-enactments."

Despite its age, the franchise also ranks as one of the few primetime broadcast series to maintain its ratings this year. Although Friday shows have been declining, Saturday night's "Cops" continues to rake in a steady 5 million viewers per week and a 1.7 rating in the adult demo.

Launched in 1989, the show has changed little over the years and outlived a legion of imitators. Most recently, A&E's "Steven Seagal Lawman" drew comparisons to the Fox show. Langely said he isn't a fan of "Lawman," where cameras follow Seagal on duty with a Louisiana sheriffs department.

hott & sweet

Ok, I was rolling when I read the line, "I'm not ashamed to say I could eat a donut right now." LOL!

Oregon state trooper is finalist in national donut contest with the 'Cop Cake'

Donuts and cops, cops and donuts: they go together like criminals and handcuffs.

In fact, for Trooper Chris Schinnerer of the Oregon State Police, the shape of handcuffs were the inspiration for the donut he entered in the Dunkin' Donuts "Create Dunkins' Next Donut" contest.

He called it the "Cop Cake," a cake donut with chocolate frosting, white sprinkles and chopped up peanut butter cups on top.

Good cop, better donut. Lo and behold the donut was chosen from thousands of entries and Schinnerer was selected as one of 12 finalists from across the U.S., and the only one west of the Mississippi River.

"According to the Dunkin' Donuts rep, there are no more Dunkin' Donuts in Oregon," Schinnerer, a five year veteran assigned to the Tualatin patrol office, said.

Despite that, Schinnerer said he saw an ad on TV promoting the contest to create a donut, because, "cops and donuts are synonymous," he said.

"I'm not ashamed to say I could eat a donut right now."

my one big bitch against Blogger

We've all come across those blogs that we love to read, or a new blog that sounds interesting, only to find them labeled "invite only."

The Blogger msg will say, "It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation."

Sounds great, but guess what?

Blogger doesn't give you any way to contact that person to ask if you can be given an invite!

I think they need to change this system so that your blog readership can still continue to grow, even if it's "invite only". Just a thought, Blogger.
