I wonder if it also has to do with "safety in numbers." I have heard modern, local cops complain if they ride solo. They don't even want to pull over a motorist without a second cop for back-up. Maybe the sidecar guarantees that they both arrive at the exact same time, and that there is always somebody aware, with both hands available and at the ready.

Perhaps the whole "stability" thing was just a cover story?
In the old days, it was always two cops to a patrol vehicle.  I felt upset when that changed.  It's just wrong.

I know, and apparently the dude failed to show up for the hearing.  I guess that's why the judge did that capias thing.  I noticed that the judge didn't scold the lady for threatening the perp's life.  Good for him.
Judges are very funny birds.  I had two civil cases in the same courthouse where the relevant facts were exactly the same.  One judge sided with me and shamed the perps.  The other judge did not side with me at all.  I asked her if she heard the last testimony the perps gave, and I repeated it to her.  She said she had not heard that, and she failed to review the audio.  She was crooked in spirit.

Can you imagine? That wouldn't pass basic contractor hiring illegals framing standards due to potential liability. I love the one cross brace.   

Miss, who never married, got big time involved in Indian mysticism, particularly Sri Ramakrishna.

That stairway does look quite flimsy.  Wilson (in the light colored coat) had to have felt somewhat ill at ease going down it.  He couldn't have been in the best of health.  Didn't he suffer a stroke before heading back for home?

"Does work while sick." It sounds like he was just a little ahead of his time. Now it is almost an expectation of (some) companies. If you are well enough to be conscious, you are well enough to text, make calls, answer emails, place orders, finalize budgets and justify expenses.

I would say that it is not healthy at all to be that addicted to your job (and I say that as somebody who was that way for too long...)

Apparently the stroke happened in DC but apparently the tour completely exhausted him.

I had the same thoughts.  One notices though that often those in high positions or successful recognize the problem of the 24/7 working and instant communication/access have staff, etc to take care of details otherwise you would waste the whole day just replying to emails etc and not get any real work done.
