Overheard in the Blogsphere 1

"REDDING, Calif. -- On Friday July 9, 2010 a marijuana eradication operation was conducted on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest in Trinity County, south of Hayfork. . . . During the raid, a U.S. Forest Service K-9 team located (name withheld to protect this poor "lost" fellow), a displaced foreign traveler from Michoacán Mexico, who had tried to flee the area and hide while officers were performing entry into the marijuana garden." - press release, U.S. Forest Service 

Displaced foreign traveler? 

"Honest, Officer, I was on my way to Cancun, and I just got turned around!"

Ti: or something.

Brian: Yeah, they do. But they have guns too.

Hmm... the antithesis of the placed native resident?

PattiKen said...

Jeff: Could be. You never know what you'll come across while "performing entry." Gah.

Ah, too funny ... Odd and awkward what we do to try to be "politically correct."

I used to live up in that area. The trade is quite something. People don't pay their bills forever. Then, all of a sudden, the crop is in and they come round with rolls of cash to settle up.
