A very polite and mildly amused Jefferson County deputy just came to my door to give me a message. A certain Detective Goocher at the Connecticut State Police wishes me to call him. ASAP. The note gives me his phone number. Obviously he hasn't read my blog post of this morning. Or perhaps he has and he just doesn't want to put anything down in writing.
It just occurred to me. Since Governor Malloy hasn't answered my letter directly, do you suppose I can have my sheriff call the CT state police to give the governor a message to call me?
LATER: I wonder what it is that is so pressing that Detective Goocher has to waste the law enforcement resources of Jefferson County, Alabama, just to make sure his imperial demand to call him is delivered? Not that my curiosity is that aroused to place a long-distance call at my expense to find out. Perhaps he'll finally get the message of this morning and email me.
Much later: David Codrea comments on "The Hunt for the SS Sipsey." Perhaps we should break out in a good German drinking song.
