Sporadic Christmas Posting

Family, furlough, fun, festivity and frivolity.

We will be posting through Christmas and beyond. No worries there. But due to the large number of holiday obligations, the regularly schedule posting times might be a bit off. We're sure our readers are in the same boat and visit will be sporadic as well - or at least we hope everyone is putting family first over and above this website.

Merry Christmas to comrades one and all, and in the spirit of the season, as last year, no Bush-bashing this week. (Unless something realllly big happens).

Just for my fellow posters, something to make you smile.

How to write good:

1. Always avoid alliteration.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid cliches like the plague—they're old hat.
4. Employ the vernacular.
5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
7. Parenthetical words however must be enclosed in commas.
8. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
9. Contractions aren't necessary.
10. Do not use a foreign word when there is an adequate English quid pro quo.
11. One should never generalize.
12. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
13. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
14. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
15. It behooves you to avoid archaic expressions.
16. Avoid archaeic spellings too.
17. Understatement is always best.
18. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
19. One-word sentences? Eliminate. Always!
20. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
21. The passive voice should not be used.
22. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
23. Don't repeat yourself, or say again what you have said before.
24. Who needs rhetorical questions?
25. Don't use commas, that, are not, necessary.
26. Do not use hyperbole; not one in a million can do it effectively.
27. Never use a big word when a diminutive alternative would suffice.
28. Subject and verb always has to agree.
29. Be more or less specific.
30. Placing a comma between subject and predicate, is not correct.
31. Use youre spell chekker to avoid mispeling and to catch typograhpical errers.
32. Don't repeat yourself, or say again what you have said before.
33. Don't be redundant.
34. Use the apostrophe in it's proper place and omit it when its not needed.
35. Don't never use no double negatives.
36. Poofread carefully to see if you any words out.
37. Hopefully, you will use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
38. Eschew obfuscation.
39. No sentence fragments.
40. Don't indulge in sesquipedalian lexicological constructions.
41. A writer must not shift your point of view.
42. Don't overuse exclamation marks!!
43. Place pronouns as close as possible, especially in long sentences, as of 10 or more words, to their antecedents.
44. Writing carefully, dangling participles must be avoided.
45. If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
46. Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
47. Everyone should be careful to use a singular pronoun with singular nouns in their writing.
48. Always pick on the correct idiom.
49. The adverb always follows the verb.
50. Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixing metaphors.
51. If you reread your work, you can find on rereading a great deal of repetition can be by rereading and editing.
52. And always be sure to finish what

Merry Christmas everyone!

I want to wish the Area 2 gun team and Area 2 Female detectives a very Merry Xmas....cause you deserve it after all the ribbing and jealousy that was put forth on you this year. Stay as sweet as you are. You guys and gals are terrific. Not everyone is an asshole on the "blog".

I hope A/2 Gun Team get lots and lots of guns in their Christmas stockings that are hung by the fireplace with care. And then after Christmas and before New Years Day they can carry the gun-filled stockings to their office and take out each gun and inventory their Christmas presents in hopes of getting 4000 guns for the annual count. A/2 Gun Team have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Why you are picked on in this department is beyond me but I have nothing but high praise for your whole team. Anyone that gets guns,any guns off the street is making it a better place in Chicago. I also know you do arrest dangerous felons with handguns (not gun collectors) having witnessed two gun team members subdue an armed felon after a footchase in the pouring rain in 007th District. Your team is probably the best professional gun team in all Chicago. Be proud and forget any negative bs said on the blog. Jealousy is a sin instigated by the dogs and wannabes.

Merry Christmas to all. Let's think back to Sept 11, 2001. Let us try and remember how we all came to the aid of those officers and firemen of New York City who needed help. Remember back how all of our prayers went out to our brothers and sisters. Then, think about now, how we fight with each other and bordering suburbs and how we disrepect each other. I pray that another horrific event is not needed to bring us back together. Let us all think back to why we became the police, and respect each other and the families of other police officers who have to suffer hardships of having loved ones doing God's work down here. Be safe all my brothers and sister. God Bless you and your families.
