Thanks so much, 263, for your thoughtful response. You've always been one of my favorite guys on this board, and I can't imagine a better officer to make this very significant bust. I'm so glad it was a level-headed, rational guy like you who pulled this scumbag over, although I'm sure most guys on your department would have done an equally professional job. I support you 100% and if you say things are that way in the 'ham, then I believe you. I have to admit that I vent about the chief's policies at times because I think your chief (and all of them in The Commonwealth) make decisions that annoy the hell out of me. Me? I would give anything for Sheriff Joe Arpaio (a native of Springfield, Mass.) to be chief in every town in this country. I love his brand of policing and I think the country would be in a lot better shape if our chiefs were consistently tough on all kinds of crime. But enough about me and what I think! This thread's about YOU! Congratulations on rocking this! I look forward to your book deal and to all of the talk show circuit visits in the meanwhile. You're the best!
