Scanner Reports 9-22-17
Thank Dog it's FRYday. Just a recap of what I say all the time; I post what I hear on the scanner so don't tell me not to post certain things like "naked male in a dumpster" ‘cause I heard it on the scanner and that is what I do, post things I hear on the scanner. It's not my fault I heard naked male exercising in the park across from Our Lady of Sorrows 20 minutes later. It happens. There are all kinds of people in the world; some wear clothes, some don't. Just be happy that I, Roger Dodger wear clothes.
Subscriber, Laughing brought up an interesting point about government grants and federal monies that are supposed to be set aside for people who suffer from mental illness disappearing. Not that it has anything to do with naked folks. Some are saner than the rest of us, they just live in a different world. We should all try it, it would be funny. There would be nothing to hide if we were all naked. Gee, where did that federal money go anyway? Who's driving a new vehicle, going on vacations? Golf anyone? There is corruption everywhere, always has been, always will be. That doesn't mean we have to accept it and we don't. The proof is all over our streets; sleeping, shitting, and eating out of garbage cans.
Wow it just happens to be an election year too. I always discount those in one position striving for an advance, unless of course their current record shows they did things toward improving the city, state, or country without favoring their own 401K. Unfortunately, there are not many of those. In our case, we’re going to be looking for a new mayor soon. It's best to just vote for whomever we think would represent the city best.

Scanner Reports, Thursday:
Today, Thursday, is Shakey’s birthday. He is 61. He helps me out when I need it, programing my scanner, because I don't have the patience for that sort of thing. I have never known a more hard-working person in my life than Shakey. He goes to work every day with a smile on his face no matter what. He spent eight years in the Marines at the tail end of Vietnam as a Military Police Officer. Thank you for your service, good buddy. He barely survives paying rent and bills, fixing his cars. Even though he has tremors, he does all the work himself, no matter how long it takes. He'd give anyone his last buck or the shirt off his back. He walks the talk and always has. Many people know him as Kenny, the manager of Texaco that used to be at Cacique and Milpas. He is no longer there; he works at Chevron now, in Carpinteria. If you know him, please wish him a Happy Birthday, and thank him for his service.
Today there was also an open mike on the Santa Barbara City Police channel and, clear as a bell, I heard Mary 3 say: "Tell my wife I love her". I thought that is very sweet. I hope he doesn't give me a ticket for posting it. Oh yea, I don't have a car, lol.
