This one almost got away from me.
A joy happy fun part of my job puts me out dealing with the public. If you've ever dealt with the public, you might catch the huge pile of sarcasm in that.
While driving with a reporter in the KCAL newsvan through NOHO (Originality? Man, if we could just copy some of that.) a guy that looks normal walks into the street and flags us down. He's got a flyer in his hand and I thought it might be a press release.
He quickly tells us, somebody is installing electronic devices in the area that can kill people by remote control.
I was too shocked to laugh. I thanked him and promised to look into it. He turned and walked away. We drove off. Quickly. I think he was happy that somebody heard what he had to say.
I think I have just had an epiphany (first one this week). Maybe that's all a lot of people want. Just to feel that somebody has heard what they have to say. Even if it's crazy.
