Derrick Thomas Alger needs to cut back on the booze just a touch. I have a feeling, if he wasn’t drunk, he wouldn’t be wandering around in shorts and a cowboy hat and boots threatening cabbies with guns, coming into the wrong house, and then threatening to kill the family’s dog…and then asking who the family was. Uh, er, you’re in the wrong house, buddo. Now you’re going to the big house.
And B.A. Morelli needs to consult a thesaurus, or something to give him more ways to say “according to police.” There were 11 instances of that phrase in the story. That’s too many! That’s about as bad as the story that kept saying “deputies wrote.”
