    Sarcastic answers to sarcastic questions from my end of the world where the buck stops here. Follow your question marks please.

    Minutes up !
    - So they don't park in your driveway or after a night of too much drinking I have to park somewhere when I come to pick you up.
    - So it will make their lives easier and your's safer. The buck starts and stops where you are standing and you will be held accountable for it if the choices you make put other people's lives at stake. Now, do you want to rethink what you are going to do tonight?
    -You are in charge
    -Don't know. Are you Curly , Moe or Larry ?

    Police announce when, but not where, Mr. Davis.

    And lately, LPD has announced a checkpoint and then changed to saturation patrols and on a different occasion, announced saturation patrols and changed to a checkpoint.

    And to boot, according to Bob Romans, they do not clean up after themselves!

    Wait a minute, why do bars have parking lots if we are not supposed to drink and drive? Why do the police announce when and where they are having these DUI checkpoints if the idea is to catch drivers under the influence? Who is in charge here? The Three Stooges?

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
