And That’s The Way It Is

 

NYPD Dispatcher: I need an officer to respond to a trespassing call at CBS.

Officer Riley: I’ll take that call.

Officer Riley arrives at the CBS building and checks in with the security officer at the front desk. The security officer informs him that a transient is rooting through the wastebaskets in the “60 Minutes” offices. Officer Riley rides the elevator to find his subject.

He steps out of the elevator and an employee leads him to the transient. As he walks down the corridor, he glances into offices and sees papers scattered on floors and overturned wastebaskets.

He comes to the last office and there he finds a transient rummaging through the trash. He handcuffs the deplorable, and asks him; “What’s your story?” The transient replies; “I’m searching for the truth.” Officer Riley replies; “You won’t find it in this building. Let’s go, you’re under arrest.”

A tip of the hat to the “60 Minutes” reporter that badgered Governor Ron DeSantis, and whoever edited the story on Governor DeSantis.

    He should have asked the guy what the frequency was.

    But the transient has at least some of the right idea – if the truth  is in the building, it is in the trash. The stories and information that are not presented in their broadcasts.

    You need to quote Pontius Pilatus- “What is the truth”- he was the consummate politician.

    I dunno.  That transient sounds awfully sane to me . . .
