The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Job Well Done!

Never let it be said that government employees are incompetent hacks:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP)—A car found in a Gainesville neighborhood with a dead body in the back seat had been ticketed seven times by city parking enforcement.

Police found the body when a resident called authorities Monday afternoon to report the car, which had been parked on the street for days. A preliminary autopsy helped police identify the body as 42-year-old John Waldo, who had been missing since Feb. 11.

I can't help but point out that it took a citizen's complaint for parking enforcement "officers" (I refer you to this guy, courtesy O&A, for an explanation of the scare quotes) to discover that something wasn't quite right about the vehicle.

One wonders exactly how many tickets Gainesville issues before they actually bother to tow a car.

Oh, and for my brother's sake:—Booooo Gators. ;)

On the other hand, look how effective traffic law enforcement is in Scotland:

Tow a Car??? why on earth would you do that? Just park it in your back yard and call it good.

That's what we all do round he'ah
