Letter to the editor: Police logs sometimes contain a chuckle or two

It may be a guilty pleasure, but I have to read the police logs in each week’s Addy Indy. Not since “Police Squad” and the “Naked Gun” films has the serious work of law enforcement been told with such effervescent, affectionate, deadpan humor. Although the logs are not credited, a subtle comedic talent deserves acknowledgment. The lead item in the VT State Police Log on page 12A of the January 12 issue provoked a belly laugh from me with no more than a deftly placed ellipsis in its last line. Whoever you are, thanks for the great work.
