    @Stranded? @StrandedinSonoma, are you reading this?

    We’ll be ready for any aggressive actions by Sonoma County against Marin. Our highly skilled WMD strike team will take on any and all attack cows you have in your arsenal.

    Molon labe.

    Oh lord! Read the comments at the link. Looks like asshole like me are everywhere!

    Mary, if those attack cows show up cover yourself in hot butter and carry a lemon until the armored truck arrives.

    No, wait…. That was for something else attacking, can’t remember…. maybe lobsters?

    @Mary — We have one of those armored personnel carriers with a big battering ram on the front with a smiley face on the ram.

    Actually, all Santa Rosa has is a big RV that’s used as an emergency mobile command center. You Marinites are stuck in that cramped little cockpit; we Sonomans ride around in style!

    Well at least it was free. By which I mean USA paid for it instead of local citizens. So free.

    It’s awesome how much stuff you can get for free. Just ask Uncle Barry.

    Would you believe that right now, right this very minute, there are 50 heavily armed SWAT members with a Terrorism Defense truck outside this building ready to smash in here and arrest you?

    No, I find that hard to believe.

    Would you believe it is a part time street sweeper with a toothless police dog?
