Folks at the school had been taking to calling the police to complain about people being there. On. Public. Property. Not. On. School. Property.

I bitched about it here.

It occurred to me -- thanks to an F&B friend who remembers my life far better than I do -- that one possible solution to the problem I spoke about yesterday (regarding the wingnut with the blue Prius) is to call the cops and say a homeless man is near the campus.

Yeah, that's the ticket.
