“Don’t mean to interrupt your lunch”
Thoughts from Chief Sjolander… “Don’t mean to interrupt your lunch”… We have been very busy lately, so that means eating when you can, and sometimes, that means eating in the squad while typing a report. This was my lunch yesterday. I was sitting in my squad, eating when a person walked up and said, “Excuse […]

Please avoid smashing windows out of cars based on shared Facebook postings
No, I have not been answering messages on FB. No, I am not locked in a hot car in Houston. Yes, I normally answer messages as soon as possible, but you try flying around the country while pleasant flight attendants use a plunger to drive your “SFYOBIASTSOASGSC” (Sorry Fifty-four Year Old Body Into A Seat […]
