Someone’s having a bad day…

close

Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The three tickets remind me of an incident several years ago in Denver, Colorado.
A cop who had been assigned to patrol a Denver Broncos football game parked his private car in the wrong spot.
It was ticketed and towed away.
One of my client newspapers used a photo I took of him grimly looking at the ticket and ran the caption: tis better to give then to receive.

Brilliant!

And, as it happens, I was going to do an elective in Denver, but it never quite worked out.
