No skunks on the log

I know I’m supposed to bless technology, but I kind of miss shuffling through hastily scrawled notations on the police log, as well as the poorly typed (on a typewriter!) reports that highlighted events in more detail.

My favorite log entry of all time involved a skunk, a mayonnaise jar and a neighborhood that trembled in fear one winter morning when said skunk, head trapped inside the jar as it attempted to get at that last bit of mayo goodness, went on a rampage banging his head against every single metal garbage barrel put out the night before.

There could be something like that on this log: daily-log-1-31-09 But you wouldn’t get quite the same colorful language as in the report the officer who filed the report (after an emergency tomato bath and change of uniform) eventually used.
