Favorite spots seem to keep changing. I think this one is a keeper!
Pussy Cats 3
Pussycats 3 is a busy place. The three of them are continually changing their preferences. I noticed Romeo seemed to want to spend more time lately on the couch (he’s smart) than on my desk (it gets crowded many times as you have seen in previous posts). So, using good ol’ human ingenuity, I solved that problem.
The towel did a good job of keeping all that fur off the couch (Romeo prefers the towel now); however, there is another positive result in using the towel:

Now, this is the type of police work I like to hear about. Maybe we should send our police recruits to Sweden for training??
The Old Liberal
In one of the weirdest stories on the interweb this week we see the NYC police in action.
There is a fight on the uptown 6 subway and the conductor calls for help. Four cops, not in uniform , immediately respond. They subdue both of the apparently homeless black guys who are fighting. Since the cops are not carrying weapons they have to use their BARE hands. But they get the job done.

Chef Joan Cheever has been feeding the homeless in San Antonio TX, once a week since 2005.

Chef Cheever is cited for feeding the homeless in San Antonio TX.
How is she going to fight it? What is her argument?
Religious freedom. This is her way of praying – to help the needy. Yes, this is the first time I’ve read about using this argument for a citizen’s activities for a good purpose.
The officer who gave her the citation told her, “If you want to pray, go to church.”
