People are happy! Call the police!


There’s a great 911 call reported in the paper today.

“An intoxicated man was seen dancing Monday morning in the parking lot at 910 E. 10th St.”

Lord have mercy, Effie, get to the cellar!  People are dancing.

And just a few weeks ago, a person was skipping down the sidewalk.  Call 911!

Yes, folks, we who live here in Sioux Falls, SD think every blessed thing is an emergency and we call the police.  Hard to believe, I know.  Sometimes I can’t believe I live here.  Well, really that happens every day.  The weather is abysmal 11 months of the year.  We have three congresspeople in Washington and they are all corporation-loving republicans.  The gun people run the state, along with the ones who literally cannot bear to fund education, health care, or infrastructure repair.

So, you may think, why do I live here?  Because my sister lives here.  And she won’t move.  So I stay here, in the land of “People are happy–call the police.”
