today theres about ten zillion cop cars outside our building

huge funeral for former lapd chief daryl gates.

because of that the amount of crazy cop cars from all over LA are on display

plus motorcycles and swat vehicles and boats and copters.

sure public servants should get love and respect when they pass away

but imagine the streets lined with school buses when veteran teachers die

or ambulances when long time nurses slip off into the dark abyss.

or parades of valley girls in plaid skirts when bloggers peace out.

to me, that would be progress.
