Who says my crime stories are cynical?  Here’s today’s 100-word story.

 

Live Police Car Chase

“Station to Skycam One. You there, Jerry?”

“Roger that, Pam.”

“Where are you? You’re supposed to be over that police chase on Highway 52.
Someone said they saw you near Valley Hospital. That’s ten miles away.”

“Another car chase? Is that really important?”

“Are ratings important?”

“Hang on a sec…. Don’t touch that.”

“Are you talking to me? Who’s in the chopper with you?”

“No one.”

“Jerry, get your ass over to Highway 52.”

“What? You’re breaking up.”

Jerry glanced at the three kids from the cancer ward.

“It’s wonderful of you to take them up sightseeing,” the nurse said.
