Today was to be the day that the lenient traffic Commissioner John Porter and the not so lenient Nancy Lonsdale became next-door neighbors at the Fremont Hall of Justice. Well, hold the fruit basket till Monday. Workers were still moving Porter’s stuff into Dept. 602 Friday morning, so he won’t start in Fremont until next week.
That left Lonsdale, who rejected the first request for community service this morning. When I left at 11 a.m., no other defendant had bothered to ask for it.
