JACK DUNPHY ON HOW THE LAPD CAUGHT THE HOLLYWOOD ARSONIST: “A crime spree like this one has the potential to bring a city to its knees, so the LAPD mobilized every asset at its disposal to bring it to a stop. With the exception of some serial-killer investigations, I’ve never in my long career seen as much investigative weight thrown into a case.”

Don’t miss the conclusion; setting aside the heinous nature of the crimes themselves, it’s example number 1,237,622 of how there’s no way any satirist can’t improve upon real life for its pure absurdity.
