They let people in Flathead County have chainsaws and table saws?

6:52 p.m. Two heelers are reportedly vicious and roaming the area of Ridgewood Drive.

What in the heck are heelers ? Do they stay upon command ?

Heelers are Australian Cattle dogs. Nice dogs, but their herding technique is to nip at things, especially heels, sometimes including those of children. So what these two were doing was just following protocol. (BTW, for a change, I didn't make any of that up.)

So THAT is what they are calling it now?

I have a Ph.D. and I had no idea what a heeler is. Thanks, Omni.

About the cats, altogether now, they're just "pining for the fjords".

I read that as vicious two wheelers. Without riders?

Oh, HEELERS. Never mind.

1. if the police shut the Facebook guy down expect the price of Chinese food to skyrocket.

2. 1:36 p.m. Camouflaged men in hunter orange vests have reportedly been “patrolling” Ridgewood Drive in their vehicle. I think someone is unclear on the concept of how camouflage work.

Ewwww, Poor cats. The chinese eat them though

Omni got that right. "Heelers" are more often called "Blue Heelers" due to their mottled bluish-grey coats. (There are "Red Heelers" too.) They rank up there with Border collies and Australian shepherds for smarts. They're usually very sweet dogs.

Another side of the Flathead County Police. Two days ago a three year old boy was kidnapped from his home here in Vancouver, BC by his nutbar father. An amber alert was immediately posted and police in both countries were searching for the pair; it weas deemed that the boy was at considerable risk. This morning the Flathead police located the boy and arrested the father.

So kudos to you, Flathead County police. Although we sometime mock your blotter, it's all meant in good fun, and we love and respect you for the job you do.

Well said, Afkat. Hats off to the Flathead County Police.

♪ R-E-S-P-E-C-T:
That's what Flathead means to me

We have nothing but respect for the police of Flathead County at this blog, after all they have to deal with the type of people who make complaints like: 12:11 p.m. A Kalispell woman complained that someone wrote her a “weird” check.

@Max:

Excerpt from P.J. O'Rourke's "Holidays in Hell,"
about his 1985 trip to El Salvador: "The soldiers guarding the highway to the airport were dressed in full camouflage but also in Day-Glo-orange road-crew vests. It must have been tough choosing between guerrilla sniper fire and the way the average Salvadoran drives."
