The Record, putting important shit on the front page since...

OK, they never put important shit on the front page. Instead they put shit like this. While I guarantee this was also on the front page of a lot of newspapers across the state, it doesn't make it right. We get it, no more talky and drivey at the same time. Want to know how I know we get it and am not just talking out of my ass and speaking for Stockton as a whole? Let's go to the videotape! (or in this case, the actual article):
The Stockton-area CHP fielded an eight-officer team Tuesday to enforce the state's new law. The CHP wrote 22 tickets between roughly 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.

"They had to work really hard to get 22 of them," said Officer Scott Siria, a spokesman for the Stockton-area CHP. "Almost everyone is complying."

That's right, the Stockton CHP office felt the need to spend our tax dollars on an eight-officer team to write 22 tickets. That's roughly 3 tickets per officers. At 20 bucks a pop that's $440. Meanwhile, this shit was happening. Thanks Stockton, keep those priorities straight.
