Small World!


ATTENTION SME AND TWEETS! Do you recognize the guy on the left? You should. You graduated with him! Sgt. Dave Karsnia was the arresting officer in the Sen Larry Craig incident. I didn't know David was a cop.

I've known this young man since he was a baby. In fact, I know his whole family! I thought my Dad was pulling my leg when he told me this. Then I thought it was just somebody with the same name. So I Googled it. That's David all right. He hasn't changed a bit. What a small world!

I'm trying to get caught up on the household chores while I'm packing for our trip tomorrow. Whatever isn't done by 10 p.m. will have to wait 'til Tuesday. Have a safe weekend everyone!

Bizarro! It is definitely a small world!

Ho-ly crap!! Dave wasn't the brightest bulb in the chandelier as a kid, but I guess he's doin' OK now.

Have a great weekend, Tshsmom!

How cool! What the heck is he wearing in that pic, tho?

OMG, I just remembered how Craig got busted. He wasn't actually caught already doing something...he was caught going for a decoy! (Officer Dave). I totally forgot about that. Richard tried to make me watch a recreation on some comedy show, saying "But it's in Minnesota!", and I said, "No way, ew ew ew. I don't need to see pervy bathroom sex, thanks." I mean, seriously, who would hook up with a total stranger in a bathroom?! I won't even use the towels in public bathrooms!!

Poor guy. What kind of shit job is that, anyway? Did he draw the short straw that day? "OK, you've gotta sit in the can all day and wait for an old perv to hit on you."

Had to laugh at this story when it hit TV yesterday. What a stupid man.

"I am not gay." Jesus. Just watch Queer As Folk. It explains everything.

If he wasn't the brightest bulb, SME, do you think he could have misunderstood the Senator's hand gestures and nudging of the foot? wink, wink :-)

Wasn't the Senator picking at used toilet paper or something like that? Give the guy a break. (This is sarcasm.) Boy, how would you like to have a job like that - sitting in a stall waiting to receive propositions?

Oh my god I just said aloud when I saw him. I havent seen David since we graduated. Its amazing. I never heard of this. Mom didnt say a word about it. This is just plain weird. I agree with Sme though. Who would want to sit in a bathroom all day and wait for a perv to hit on you to arrest him. Glad he is doing well in life though.

Officer Dave is awful cute, I can see why Craig picked him. I'm not sure I would want that claim to fame, though. ;)

Nah, I'm pretty sure when someone goes to the trouble to nudge your foot from the next stall, it only has one meaning. ;D

SME, he was always a whiny little kid. Fortunately he got over that. ;)
He's got a "deer in the headlights" look on his face in that picture. Maybe he still isn't the sharpest crayon in the box?

Thanks Monica!

Bridg, his uniform, with his radio velcroed to his shoulder.

SME, I CAN'T WAIT to tease his Dad about this! "Dad, I don't want to follow in your footsteps and be a butcher. I'd much prefer hanging out in men's room stalls all day, waiting for pervs!"

WC, what pisses me off is that he authored a bunch of anti-gay legislation!

VV and Gardenia, apparently Craig made all the "right?" moves. ;)

Tweets, NOBODY knew about it here, until Craig's interrogation tape was on the news.
My Dad heard about it from our former county attorney. I didn't believe it until I Googled his picture. That's definitely the David we all know!

Courtney, his 2 older brothers are even cuter!
That's not the way I'd want to get MY 15 minutes of fame. ;)

Wow! That would be cool to arrest somebody that big. That's something he'll be able to tell his grandkids.

Is he still up there or is he in Minneapolis?? I have no idea but a few of our class mates are because I found a couple on Facebook and MySpace. Other than that I have no idea where we all scattered to. I am glad he is doing more than a butcher though. LOL.. Still hard to believe he's cop though. Wow. I suppose we can all do what we want when we put our minds to it.

ZS, unfortunately, he'll have to wait until his grandkids are teens to tell them WHY he arrested a Senator. ;)

Tweets, this all happened in the Mpls airport, so yes, David is a cop in the Cities.
The news says he's a Sgt, so he seems to be doing pretty well for his age.

 
At 9/04/2007 10:15 PM, Blogger SME said...

I read an article saying that he's very nice to the pervs he arrests. He tries to keep it quiet and not embarrass them further.

Ok. Cool. Well sometimes Sme that is the best. They get themselves all over the news anyway after the fact so a little down time isnt so bad. LOL...

That's cool that you know him. Jeez, I'd hate to be a cop. On more pleasant topics, hope you had a good trip. :-)

Wow, small world! Hope you had a great weekend.

SME, David must take after his Mom's side of the family. His Dad's side would never keep ANYTHING quiet! ;)

Notta, I don't have what it takes to be a cop. I'm a patient person, but not the kind of patient it takes to be a cop. :(

Squirl, we had a great weekend! Now we're recharged enough to put our noses to the grindstone again.
