Proof Anaheim Is Not The Happiest Place on Earth

The fireworks blast every night in Anaheim as a thunderous reminder that escapism for locals is just around the corner at Disneyland.

Of course, leaving reality isn't free.

You'll have to pay $87 for a ticket and another $15 for parking.

Perhaps that is why some people turn to other, more illicit ways to transport themselves to fantasyland.

For example, take the case of Kimberly Dawn Keister. If Orange County prosecutors are right, Keister had all the tools for a voyage one day in July 2011. That's when police allegedly caught the 26-year-old Anaheim resident with illegal drugs and a needle.

Keister (seen below during her arrest) has pleaded not guilty to multiple felony drug possession charges and her criminal case is pending in Orange County Superior Court.

Keister
In January--while she was out of custody on bail for the drug case, Keister was caught in Costa Mesa in a pickup truck that contained 40 pieces of mail stolen from at least 24 residences in Mission Viejo, Lake Forest and other Orange County cities.

According to court records, the stolen mail contained $26,609 worth of checks, driver's licenses and a Social Security card. One check for $285 had been altered to make Keister the payee.

This week, Keister resolved the mail theft case in federal court by signing a guilty plea deal. She will be sentenced at an undetermined date inside the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana. The maximum punishment in such cases is a five-year prison trip and a $250,000 fine.

Oops. that should be 5000 hits for .pl. Then again, many of those hits refer to 'Apartments Tonkovic' in ...Croatia! Given the 'Polish-German' heritage of his mother, your stream of consciousness 'book reviewer' is a walking Austro-Hungarian empire. Gott erhalte, Gott beschutze, unsern Kaiser, unser Land...Hey, didn't they take over Mexico at one time too? Of course, who hasn't.

Thankfully. At any rate, Tonkovic site:.hr produces 100,000+ hits, Tonkovic site:.pl about 1000. Odds are there's a Croat in that there woodpile.

Grrr, I hate it when I'm gotten the best of. It still amounts to stealing and if that's their level of integrity, I deserve no better than I get if I trust them.
