Someone’s having a bad day…

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
