More of the Weekend, "Interesting Times"

I can't believe when I wrapped up the week I forgot to mention -- when we went to get Barb's mom's shopping list, her street was filled with police cars and the Crime Scene Investigation van and the Mobile Crime Scene Unit, and her neighbor's house was all wrapped up with yellow crime scene tape. Went inside, and Mom didn't know a thing about it -- although she remembered hearing a rapid "pop pop pop pop" around six in the morning. We came home and found this story -- the house in the picture is her next-door-neighbor, and you can see the corner of her house there on the right.

Yikes.

I wanted to ask someone there what was happening, figuring we did have a valid reason for asking, as we have an elderly relative living there alone, but never actually saw anyone except one investigator who came out of the house and then went back in without pausing.

Wil Wheaton's dented ping-pong ball is apparently selling for $1,135.

You can call the police station and ask to see the Police Blotter. Its public record. You never need special permission to ask the Police what they are doing.

Yeah, I know they'd speak to anyone who asked, but I personally wouldn't want to bother an officer who is busy with an investigation without a good reason for doing so!

Very scary -- and more than a little disturbing.

Very pleased with the final selling price of the crappy dented ping-pong ball! :D

Good grief. That must have been scary for y'all. Hopefully it's a personal thing that means the neighborhood as a whole is still safe.

I can't believe that Silas is currently auctioning for over $300 more than the autographed DVD. (Then again, I'd probably want to buy Silas, too, just for the sheer value in the story behind the random dented ping pong ball with googly eyes.)

I can't believe Silas sold for over 1,110 dollars!!! Pasadena's Humane Society are going to be VERY happy with Wil Wheaton!

Hopefully it was just something personal. With luck nothing more will happen there. *crossed fingers*
