We Will Be Here: On Donuts, the Duck of Justice and Other Non-Emergencies

Needing a break from the latest executive follies - nominating himself for the Nobel, grazing for omelettes, whining SNL is "the real collusion!" - we turn to the improbable, heartening, slice-of-Maine-life that is the Bangor Police Department's Facebook page. Herein, find wry tales of good deeds, small crimes, hope, grief, empathy, cereal, rules on snowstorms and flannel shirts, the universal "fight to find the light," the grace of small acts of kindness, and, yes, donuts.

Thank you. I was wondering where all the joy was holed up at.

Maine. Who woulda thought.

I had to look up Maine’s motto: " Dirigo" = I direct. YES he does and that policeman is directing humans to be kind and play fair----and who wouldn’t love a Duck of Justice and pictures of Blitzen’s foot prints, and donuts too. Perhaps very cold weather has a benefit of making hearts so much warmer . : )
