Okay. Your turn to ramble….well, I got one more thing on the jump…..

So this has gone national, even finding its way into one of my many radio comedy services. Har har har, yuk yuk yuk:


   Michelle Bachand, 26, a Vermont State police dispatcher, who brought drugs to a training session at the police academy. Bachand was found with the marijuana on her person during a class for civilian police dispatchers held at the academy. She was arrested and is no longer employed as a dispatcher.

Unfortunately for Michelle Bachand, of Lyndonville, Vt., common sense seemed to evade her last Friday when the 26-year-old dispatcher allegedly showed up to an employee training session at the Vermont Police Academy carrying marijuana.


Police say Michelle Bachand, 26, of Lyndonville, was found with marijuana at a training session Friday at the Vermont Police Academy in Pittsford

Vermont State Police:

On May 4, at approximately 9:30 AM, VSP was advised that Michelle Bachand was in possession of marijuana. Further investigation revealed that Bachand had a small amount of marijuana in her vehicle.

Emphasis mine.

    .@MittRomney I guess if you lack a core/spent your pol career saying anything 2 win you could oppose a successful policy then take credit

    This is in reference to Rmoney today saying he takes some credit for the return of the auto industry.

    Maurice Sendak passed away at 83.  I call my 5 year old son “little bear” because he reminds me of Sendak’s illustrations of that series.  My older kids have both worn a Max costume (from Where the Wild Things Are) for Purim that my mother sewed.

    MCA and Sendak in the same week.  My youth seems to be slipping farther and farther into the past in fits and starts these days.

    My office has been going through some troubles lately and soon a lot of good people will be out of a job, although I should be ok.  It’s hard to be both grateful and sad at the same time.

    I’m sure things will be ok.  It’s a good reminder that there are more important things in life than work.

    Let’s say someone I know who works at a federal agency (ahem) has seen a FOIA request from an AP reporter looking for any and all correspondence, logs, etc. pertaining to Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH)…

    Let’s say that, apart from DC staff, this agency operates almost exclusively in 17 western states (not Ohio, not remotely).

    I wonder what that’s all about?
