Keep Auburn Police Blotter laughs coming

While I agree that the Auburn Police Department could better spend its time on the street rather than behind a desk, I think Greg Brown’s letter regarding the police blotter presents a false and unfair argument. I, for one, enjoy the comical format of the police blotter in the Reporter. The writer has taken a normally boring and often overlooked section of the paper and transformed it into an inviting and catchy section that I make a point to read.

I was sincerely disappointed this week to read “a collision occurred,” with none of the usual flair of the blotter.

Do everyone a favor, if you are going to include the police blotter in your paper, make it worth reading.
