Sirens were blaring at 7th and Montana this morning as several police officers arrived on the scene, intent on putting a stop once and for all to the rash of illegal gardening that has been plaguing Santa Monica.  Evidently, a Hapless Gardener was found guilty of violating strict regulations prohibiting the use of Leaf Blowers anywhere in the City.  While the officers raked the poor man over the coals in two languages, I couldn't help wondering who blew the whistle on him.  As for the Gardener, he seemed thoroughly confused.  "Don't worry," I muttered under my breath, "I'm sure this will all blow over soon ...!"

I'm so glad the authorities are taking care of this serious problem rather then cracking down on home-based meth labs. ~ Mary

I think lawns should be illegal. Plant hemp! and, ya know, HEMP! And tell the cops to inhale, PLEASE! --Cin

Your commenteers are taking the words straight from my mouth........... meanwhile around the corner, the local grocery store was held up and two people killed!
Two kids were arrested here for kicking a football against a neighbours wall. It musta been the same policemen who arrested them!
