“Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies recovered more than 40 presents belonging to the family after arresting their neighbor Sunday in a separate burglary case,” The Associated Press reports.

  1. The gista is that a mista in Vista (might have a sista and be employed as a barista) is getting a slap on the wrista or even a face full of fista because he pista guy off cos he stole his Apple package of transistors and resistors and probably gotta a blista cos it was hot and not because it was a laptop running Vista.

  2. I won’t blame MDN for this, but Vista is NOT nearby Westlake Village, next door to the Kardashians. Vista is 100 miles south. Apparently, location services doesn’t work on Vista either.
