  1. Got a few more details on the peculiar 911 entry re: the Sorrento Hotel. Turns out, somebody fell into a 10-foot cement “hole” near the Sorrento. Fire Dept didn’t know if it was somebody working or ??? but most of the responding units were quickly sent on way and person was taken to Harborview with unknown injuries. The lesson: watch out for 10-foot holes.

  2. Here’s a treat from Halloween night, about 2am:
    my girlfriend’s Honda’s windshield shattered by thrown pumpkin, Harrison at 14th. Suspects seen walking around drunkenly.
    Remains of pumpkin indicate it was big.
