Even the Paperclip Knows What's Up

From the Desktop of Sam Katz:


This afternoon Police Chief Keith McCaskill is (finally) expected to brief the public on what good a police helicopter is even supposed to do. In setting the stage for the live feed, however, the Free Press felt fit to drop this snippet of pertinent information on us (emphasis added):

"In Edmonton, police recently debuted their second helicopter, $1.65-million EurocopterEC120B.

Police officials there said the second aircraft means it will be able to increase police surveillance power, as the first chopper isn’t available about 30 per cent of the time.
"

whaaaaaaaat

If you heard testimonials from other customers saying this about anything -- a car, a fridge, a popcorn maker, even a pen -- wouldn't you feel like giving your prospective purchase a little bit more consideration? Or would you honestly just rush right out to buy it, just to make sure nobody gets the chance to convince you otherwise?

HOT DAMN KEITH DID YOU HEAR THAT, THIS THING WORKS TWO-THIRDS OF THE TIME

GET MY CHEQUEBOOK

Now now, relax - okay its a bummer that the chopper may only work 2/3 of the time... but that's an improvement over City Council that only works 1/4! Baby steps... its all about baby steps.

Hey, do you know what a police helicopter and City Council have in common?

Neither of them do anything until you pour petroleum in them!
