One of the highlights of the week is a friend reading me the “Street Scenes” column from our local newspaper (not on Newsline for the Blind) about local citizenry behaving badly and the law enforcement response to same. The local university’s student paper used to have a police blotter column of students behaving badly which was the first part of the paper most of us read. A December 19 Wall Street Journal article pointed out the second edition of Bozeman, Montana’s book on the same topic. A quick look at Amazon’s offerings showed several including a compilation by J. Leno. I checked availability in accessible format of this genre, and found none. So I sent a suggestion to the National Library Service to record at least one; time will tell if they make it happen.

Until that happens, if it happens, the following websites will have to slake my curiosity: http://www.daytondailynews.com/list/news/crime-law/police-blotter/aHdB/, http://www.mercurynews.com/crime-courts/ci_24695580/best-police-blotter-2013?source=pkg, http://bozemanpr.blogspot.com/.
