Police Chase

Was just in the parking lot talking on the phone with Brandy for a few minutes, when I saw a police car pull up on the street outside our parking lot, then two officers got out and quickly headed down the steep hill underneath the bridge that is right across from our building. Moments later a helicopter was also circling.

Went upstairs to find out what is going on. So far I just found a one sentence blurb:


Seattle Police are searching for a rape suspect in an area near 12th and Dearborn. The SWAT team and King County’s Guardian One helicopter have been called in.

12th is the bridge. Dearborn must be one of the streets underneath the bridge. I didn’t see anything more than the officers running down the hill and then later a quick glimpse of them methodically walking through a grassy area down the hill.

And I probably won’t see any more since I am now back upstairs in my office and have things to do. But still… a moment of excitement for the day.

Bye Bye Geena

Will She Be Impeached
(Drudge, Drudge Report)

While it is not clear if the country is ready for a woman to take the title of COMMANDER IN CHIEF, TV executives at ABC have all but decided to pull the plug on the breakthrough drama, top sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

“No one here will say publicly that it’s over [for the show],” a well-placed insider said this week from Los Angeles. ‘But it is over.”

It was an OK show, but not spectacular. But with both West Wing and this going away, someone needs to start up a new prime time political drama right quick. There are certainly enough Doctor, Lawyer and Crime shows… just kill one of those and do another politics one. K?
