Off the wall
With Nevena Predolac

- Arizona police caught a 62-year-old grandmother with 214 pounds
of marijuana in her trunk. She cited her bingo addiction as her
reason for becoming a local drug kingpin. Police got her on a
tip from a competitor addicted to Viagra.
- During last week's Budget and Finance WI-FI hearing, a student
nurse said the city should quickly move to adopt a WI-FI plan
because it will reduce the number of people in the emergency room
because patients will be able to diagnose themselves on-line and,
in doing so, save tax payers millions of dollars in medical costs.
- On the day of Newsom's "It's all true" speech, members
of the press awaited for the moment for the mayor to emerge and
tell all. First through the door was Communications Director Peter
Ragone. Second through the door was the mayor. If the door opened
for the third time, I think it would have been Pinocchio.
- Some residents at Saturday's Bayview Town Hall Meeting complained
their heaters have been broken for years and said the city refuses
to do anything about it. The situation was deftly handled by Housing
Authority Director Gregg Fortner who repeated the phone number
he never answers.
