Friday Night Fables: Rainy – With Intermittent Fisties And Crashiness


A News24/680 Roving Cameraman was working his beat Friday, prowling Walnut Creek’s cushiest joints and darkest alleys, trying to get a feel for which way the night was heading – and coming back with these shots of combative customers and slip-sliding sojourners.

Nighthawker Sean McDonough kept busy racing from incident to incident, capturing fisticuffs at a local bar, traffic, and crashes on city streets and freeways.

You never know what’s headed your way on Friday night.



  1. And do cops hate to be out and about dealing with ill-behaved people in the rain and the dark. A risk of ‘ resisting arrest’ possible. Stay safe out there LEO’s and EMT’s.

  2. Slip slidin’ away
    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away

    It’s a simple poetic thought, really. You can go any which way with an interpretation, which is kind of the beauty of it.

    First Black president. Progress toward racial equality. Oh! Oh! White backlash. Slippin’ away.

    Progress toward theocratic rules on abortion, IVF, contraception. Oh! Oh! Better-half backlash. See it all slip-slidin’ away!

    And God only knows
    God makes his plan
    The information’s unavailable
    To the mortal man
    We’re workin’ our jobs
    Collect our pay
    Believe we’re gliding down the highway
    When in fact we’re slip slidin’ away
