Red Light Blue Light (Commerce St., Jackson, Miss.).

faked by Thursday, April 26th, 2007



Leaving Don’s Saturday night the now-regular traffic jam in front of Fire was in full force. There were at least four JPD cruisers—one of whom was parked right behind my car.

“So . . . are y’all moving soon? I can go back in . . . .”
(Grunts)
“Uh . . . I can wait, I suppose.”
(Grunts)

So I sat in the car and read the Times ‘til the cruiser moved, about fifteen minutes later. And I got this sketch; I think that’s supposed to be an Element but it may be a Tahoe. Um.

    looks like you’ve got 40 red, white and blue shoestrings and you need to know where to get rid of those things.

  2. I thought this was going to be about your getting pulled over, and I’m relieved to see it’s not! What with all the dead bodies in your trunk and all.

    Let me think for a minute, son.

    Yes, I think it can be easily done. Make that 15 minutes…

    The last time Gorjus thought he was going to get pulled over, he parked his car on the interstate AND WALKED HOME.

    Now, now. That was just an on-ramp! And it was many years ago. And, to my credit . . . okay, there’s not much else to say here. Suffice to say I a) had no license at the time and b) no insurance and c) no physical capability to be driving and d) basically thought I would be thrown under the jail.

    And that I had somehow convinced myself that there was a roadblock on the highway. (It was a motorcade for Senator Kerry).
