The last time I saw this many cops was a few years ago when the bank our
company was above was being
robbed.* This time however, about two dozen cop cars (at least,
maybe more) just flew by our office, sirens blaring and turned right at the
corner into one of the many commercial parks in this section of Boca Raton,
Florida. I figure we'll hear about it on the news later tonight,
tomorrow at the latest.
* It was a Friday afternoon in
'98 or '99 when the building we were in was surrouded by Boca's Finest.
Shortly afterwards, the SWAT team showed up, and took positions around the
building. A police officer managed to make it up the back stairs to our
office and told us to keep the door locked. After a few tense hours the
suspect was arrested—it turned out he was an escaped mental patient.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
