Grazed donuts

Don't know if it's my imagination but are drivers more reckless near donut shops? Could it be from inhaling all that sugar?

Only in Hollywood

In the Thin Blue Line police publication, officer John Lamberti lists some of his memorable experiences while on duty in Tinsel Town:

• "Going to pay the bill for my breakfast, only to find that the tab had been covered by one of the biggest rock stars of all time."
• "Discovering that...people like to run around naked on Sunset Boulevard at all hours of the day and night."
• "Trying to figure out who's supposed to strip search (an) arrestee who was born a female, got a sex-change operation, but was currently in the process of transitioning back to female, and listed as a male on the rap sheet but a female on the driver's license."

Another bad grade

Barbara Joan Grubman of Woodland Hills saw a hand-written sign in a ladies room that asked users not to throw "famine" napkins in the toilet.


One-stop shopping

If you are in the habit of putting your foot in your mouth — an occasional problem of mine — Bruce Welmers suggested a place where you could get help.

And, finally, don't forget Father's Day
