    Heat started up at 6:30 pm.

    Just had a kid break into my place through the roof door with cops right behind him. Busted in my foyer.

    New York City!

    The fun part was me hammering up my stairs in a robe screaming "what the fuck is going on!" with an axe helve in my hand. Rounded the corner of the landing to see six cops with guns drawn and a scared 16 year old.

    "Could you put the stick down, sir?"
    "Sure thing, fellows."

    Apparently he spent the night in the next door neighbour's apt. She heard him this morning when she came home and called to cops, so he bolted and broke into my place.

    who has witnessed this move by NYC yellow cabs: when they see the sidewalk is clear and drive up onto the sidewalk and bypass a delivery van causing traffic.

    i've seen it twice this year. the 2nd time I sensed it was going to happen and followed the cab into freedom on my way to the queensborough bridge.

    Careful, they could be those fake cabs that are undercover cop cars (and therefore feel entitled to break the law with reckless abandon). And if so I bet they'd jam you for doing exactly what they did.

    Should have asked.

    My front door keys are missing so now I have to wait around for a locksmith.

    Lefty, that's crazy. Glad everyone is OK.

    That's the kinda thing you expect to see on a Law & Order episode.
