    Selling pot is illegal in Key West? Who knew!?!

    So sad that so many journalists have to take a second job just to make ends meet.

    Kind of a loss. I heard he always gave his readers the straight dope.

    That said, isn't it kind of bogus that because the guy was traffic-stopped within 1,000 feet of a "church," they charge with a hyped-up classification? The guy was running a red light -- I doubt he was going to double back to the Unitarian Universalist parking lot. I've never been to Key West, but where I live, I am sure I often drive within 1,000 feet of schools and churches I don't even know are there.

    Between all the drug dealing and pimping when do these guys find the time to write?

    Interesting...the two guys even look alike.

    It's a gateway beat... after two years most guys move up to cover the crank-bugs beat.

    Stunning that Key West is even enforcing dope laws. The guys who made this arrest obviously never attended the Key West Hemingway Way Days Festival. Best contact high ever.

    About five years ago, we had a guy who was dealing cocaine out of our mail room. Back when we had a mail room.

    As long as he wasn't dealing to people on his beat, I don't see the problem [/crossthred]

    Also on the crime beat, apparently the assistant sports editor of The Indianapolis Star has an identity theft rap.

    I agree. That's pretty lame.

    I understand that you don't want dealers making the rounds as kids are boarding buses home from school or shouldering through the church choir handing out crack, but driving past a church makes it a felony?
