Apologies to my NOLA readers but I’ve decided to recycle this post for my national congregation. I wanna hear what sort of smart ass comments y’all have. Amen.
It comes from a NOPD press release so naturally it’s in blue:
I complained a few weeks ago about gettingblue spammed by the NOPD. I hereby retract that comment. There’s comedy gold to be mined from them thar press releases. Here’s the latest:
Superintendent of Police Ronal W. Serpas discusses the brief case incident that occurred on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, in Jackson Square:
On October 5, 2010, at 9:39 A.M., Eighth District officers were dispatched to Chartres and Saint Ann Streets regarding a large red suitcase in front of a restaurant in that area. Officers quickly responded and were on scene minutes later at 9:43 A.M. The officers located the suitcase at which time a Cabildo Police Officer advised the officers that the case belonged to a Tara Card reader. Upon further investigation, the officers opened the case and found the case to contain a table cloth and Tara Cards which is consistent to the belongings of a Tara Card Reader. The officers were able to locate the owner, a Tara Card reader, who was setting up a stand in the area.
On this same day, at 10:32 A.M., officers were dispatched a second time to Jackson Square regarding luggage in front of a location for an unknown amount of hours; luggage could be located a few feet away from a bench. Again, officers quickly responded and were on scene minutes later at 10:37 A.M. Upon arrival, the officers located the same Tara Card reader, near a bench, to be in possession of the same suitcase.
Superintendent Serpas said, “After a review of the incident, it was found that the officers responded properly and followed proper procedures in handling the incident.”
The first time I read tara cards I assumed it was a typo. It was not. So, I turned on the deep thought machine. Is tara Yat for terror? Probably not. It could, however, involveGone With The Windtrading cards; you know like baseball cards. I’m very interested in getting my hands on a Prissy “I don’t know nothin’ about birthin’ no babies, Miz Scarlet” card or a Scarlet and the harlot card. Hmm, I wonder if Bitter Vitter is a Belle Watling fan? Instead, it’s all about a tarot card reader who keeps leaving her suitcase on the Square. Boring.
