As I was walking by Arriba Juntos this morning, I saw two cop cars, or five cops, an ambulance and several paramedics.

I asked what was going on. A firefighter replied, “A shoving match. It’s lame.”

Word was that someone tried to cut in line, things escalated, the authorities were called. While paramedics checked to make sure a woman was OK, others still in line called her a drama queen.

And that wraps up our report from the food bank line.
