Couldn't wait another night, eh Mike? ;)

Does that mean they are filming a new Police Academy movie in Tucson? I certainly hope G.W. Bailey will be reprising his role as Captain Harris.

No Missy, it is a fourteen week class (actually get credit from Pima Community College (http://www.pima.edu).

There are fifty in the class. Last night was an introduction. I will post things weekly. We will see the crime lab get to drive cars like in Top Gear, shoot guns, go on ride alongs with real police etc.

Let me know if you have any questions. (I already know what Karen's questions are, LOL)!

Mike I want you to take over the role of Michael Winslow and make all those ace sound effects :)

Well, Mike, it certainly sounds noisy!

(But I admire you for doing it)

Sounds great. Be careful with the guns and drive safely!

They'll let any accused felon in these days...

I MEAN! GOOD LUCK, MIKE!

Mike, do you think civilians should be firing guns, even if supervised by members of the police department?

Our gun laws are so strict in Australia, if you walked into the street with a toy gun you'd be charged with illegal possession of a firearm. (I ain't kidding!)

Yes, Missy. Guns are part of our culture.
Yesterday was just an introduction. We learned about the different parts of the department and what we will see.
We will see the crime lab, speak with department heads etc.

CSI: Tuscon

crime lab technician: "Hey Grissom -- I mean, Tuscon, you're gonna want to see this..."

[Silhouetted figure appears, blaring desert sun behind him, until the solemn face of TusconMike becomes visible. He stops one step short of crime scene.]

[crime lab tech holds up a clump of something in her long tweezers]

crime lab tech: "It's another...furball."

TusconMike: "He's toying with us."

to be continued...
