Arcata, California

I’m not quite sure where Arcata, California is, but the city’s Web site is a pretty interesting place to visit.

The highlights are a pair of “logs”: a Police Log, and a Fire Log. Some excerpts:

“4:40 a.m. In the 500 block of G Street, layabout leisurites lounged loudly on a loading dock, perhaps trying to say that three times fast. An outdoorsman was warned regarding unlawful lodging.”

“2:11 p.m. Her heart leapt with joy as her dog, her companion, her friend ran free through the Humboldt State University campus. Others did not share in the delight. Police returned her dog, her companion, her friend, her menace, and offered cordial disillusionment.”

“8:44 a.m. The Go-Away Guy became the yelling-at-the-world guy in the 900 block of H Street. He was admonished and asked to relocate.”

Pretty darn entertaining stuff.
